About the Academy

The Saints Volunteering and Coaching Academy was introduced to provide opportunities for our students to add value to their University education, enhance their global awareness, develop their leadership and life skills and improve their teaching and coaching abilities or media know-how.

The Academy provides excellent opportunities for students to become involved in volunteering projects based locally and internationally, enabling them to develop skills and qualities that they can use effectively not just in a volunteering environment, but throughout life.

The Saints Volunteering and Coaching Academy offers St Andrews students a selection of projects and unrivalled experiences, with opportunities to create new friendships that they will cherish throughout their life. Students will be expected to work as part of the wider Saints Sport team and at all times work closely with the Athletic Union and external partners of the academy whom we enjoy excellent working relationships.

The Saints Volunteering Section of the website will provide extensive information on our volunteering projects, how to get involved and even some personal experiences from the projects themselves.
