Program Description:

In this program, facilitated by IFSA-Butler, students enroll directly in the University of St. Andrews, the oldest university in Scotland, founded in 1413. Housed at the University of St. Andrews is the largest operational optical telescope in Britain, the world-renowned Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Violence, and a dedicated marine laboratory. Visiting students may take coursework across disciplines in humanities, arts, and sciences. Students live in university accomodations close to the central university area. Fife, located in eastern Scotland, was settled in the sixth century, and offers a great sense of community as well as a sense of history.
