Study abroad

Many departments in the university offer their students the opportunity to study abroad in their third year and it is an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience no matter your degree. Whether you study Art History, German or Physics you can travel to one of the university’s partner institutions in countries all over the world including in Europe, the U.S.A., Canada and even Australia.

Studying abroad gives students the chance to continue working on their degree while discovering a new country and culture, making new friends and professional connections and improving their CV all at the same time. Study abroad exchanges are highly valued by employers who see candidates with this experience as being more mature and able to deal with new challenges as well as being more confident and cultured.

Almost all students who spend a semester or year studying abroad return to St. Andrews with big smiles, crazy stories and happy memories as well as a deeper understanding of their degree subject. AHAsoc would recommend a study abroad exchange to anyone looking for a new challenge and adventure. Think this is for you?
