Global Summer School

We are delighted to launch the Global Summer School which will be offered to international undergraduate students as a new opportunity to experience the academic rigour and quintessential feel of St Andrews first-hand.

The University of St Andrews is steeped in tradition and known for its global outlook, ranked first in the UK by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2022.

Choose two accredited modules from our unique programme to expand your academic horizons and take home up to 10 ECTS/6 US credits. The modules are designed by our expert academics to introduce you to new academic perspectives, approaches and skills, so no prior subject knowledge is required. As a bonus, you also have the option to complete the University of St Andrews Professional Skills Award, endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management, as part of this summer school.

Our extra-curricular programme will allow you to delve into Scottish culture, studying against the background of Scotland’s oldest university, whilst at the weekend organised trips will immerse you in the cultural heritage of the local area and landscapes.

Get a taste of the St Andrews student experience amidst a welcoming community in a truly stunning location.

This programme is no longer taking applications for 2022.
