College counsellors conference

Each year, the University invites college counsellors and advisors to experience St Andrews in person on the annual college counsellor conference. The programme provides the opportunity for counsellors to tour the University, meet staff and students, and learn about our admission requirements and procedures.

In February 2019, 60 counsellors from across North America and a host of other countries attended St Andrews, walking the cobbled streets and meeting academic and support departments. It was a great privilege to share the University with the attendees.

2020 conference

The 2020 conference will take place on Thursday 27 February and Friday 28 February 2020, with counsellors arriving on Wednesday 26 February 2020 and departing on Saturday 29 February 2020.

Accommodation will be provided for tour participants for three nights in St Andrews: the night before the start of the official programme (Wednesday night) and the two nights of the programme itself (Thursday and Friday night).

Unfortunately, the University is unable to assist with flight expenses, but will make every effort to collect participants from Edinburgh or Glasgow airport the day before the official programme begins and return them the day after it finishes.
