Open Association

The Open Association is 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.

St Andrews Open Association has a new home at the Byre Theatre which makes enrolment and enquiries simple while continuing to offer the wide range of lectures, talks and classes on a variety of subjects that you have come to expect of the Open Association.
