The Collaborations and Study Abroad (CSA) team at the University provides central administration for University Exchange and Study Abroad programmes, and programmes delivered collaboratively with other institutions, both in the UK and overseas.

Working closely with other Registry teams, Schools, the Proctor's Office, Admissions, Finance, and Student Services, the team provides services to:

  • St Andrews students studying or working abroad for credit, or participating in a collaborative programme
  • inbound exchange and study abroad students
  • Schools within the University of St Andrews
  • partner institutions around the world.

The team also manages the University's Erasmus+ Extended University Charter, which enables the University to enter into Erasmus+ agreements and operate Erasmus+ Student and Staff Mobility.
