PSC Leadership

Leadership is one of the skills that students report they want to develop most. Throughout the academic year we will invite guest speakers to talk exclusively on an aspect of leadership, and these are badged as ‘PSC: Leadership’ events. 

Our PSC Leadership Talks are an innovative format designed to stimulate students’ thoughts about leadership and related topics. Inspiring talks by national as well as internationally renowned speakers aim to give you an introduction to each topic and to spark discussions among the participants. 

Recently we've welcomed Journalist Harriet Minter, Olympic athlete Cath Bishop, and Entrepreur Bianca Miller to share their leadership stories.


In addition, we run a series of leadership practical skills sessions called ‘Leadership in Practice’ which allows you to practice leadership skills in smaller groups. Examples of the leadership in practice sessions include followership, time managment, planning and public speaking. We welcome our collaboartion with the Tayforth Universities Officers Training Corps who deliver a number of leadership workshops development for the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Examples of their sessions can be viewed below.

Each year the PSC also sponsors the 'St Andrews Student Leader of the Year' award. This is a chance for student leaders at St Andrews to be recognised for their contribution to our community.

Finally, we run a regular series called Leadership Roundtable. These are student-led discussion groups, themed on a particular leadership topic. All students are welcome to join the conversation and each session will feature some guest student contributers who hold leadership positions in clubs, societies or the community.
