However, it is the huge range of additional opportunities only St Andrews can provide which creates the unique experience. As St Andrews is a small university, students have the opportunity to interact with staff, integrate with each other, and to feel a sense of belonging.

Alongside their studies, Indonesian students will be able to enjoy taking part in societies, sports clubs and our many varied traditions.
