Open Association

The Open Association exists as a link between the University and the town, and seeks to straddle the requirement for both challenging and relaxing activities within the University’s walls for the population of St Andrews and beyond.

This year’s programmes cover a broader range of topics than ever before and are taught by an array of knowledgeable, passionate and well-known tutors. The Open Association is introducing a variety of new courses for you to enjoy, including three courses in international relations and current affairs, as requested in previous feedback. In addition to this, many of the returning courses have been altered slightly to include different topics and themes, so returning students can continue to explore their interests. We also have a full range of specialist speakers for the Friday lectures and Retirement is Opportunity talks, based on a range of interesting and informative topics.
