About us

Under the banner of Saints Sport, the Department of Sport and Exercise and the student run Athletic Union work in partnership to deliver a range of opportunities across the University, including sport, fitness classes, health services, volunteer programmes, and student development courses.

We pride ourselves on our students’ ability to excel both in their academic and sporting endeavours and hold the student experience as a cornerstone of our strategy.

At Saints Sport we are committed to developing the perfect environment for the pursuit of excellence, enhancing student experience and personal development through involvement in sport and increasing engagement in sport within and outwith the University. Each strand of our programme helps us to work towards our goal and provides the best possible springboard for our graduates into the world, to help develop our staff and provide opportunities for our community.

Sport at the University of St Andrews is not just a game; it is the foundation for a successful and rewarding life, in which our graduates strive ever to excel
