Academic Information

If you are studying at an institution overseas as part of a St Andrews degree programme, you will be awarded credits and grades at the partner institution, and these will be converted into St Andrews credits and grades on your return.  The links below should help you to plan your Study Abroad programme and complete your Learning Agreement; prepare for a new academic experience; and understand the grade conversion process.  Should you have any questions about your academic programme abroad, please contact your Study Abroad Coordinator‌.

Please note: Study Abroad for credit is permitted on existing University approved programmes only.
