- For centuries the coastal town of St Andrews has been globally recognised as a religious centre and place of pilgrimage. Today, the compact town has retained most of its medieval features, including the 12th century cathedral and castle.
- St Andrews' coastal location provides a dramatic landscape and an abundance of fresh sea air. A blustery walk along one of the town's stunning beaches is a great way to stimulate your thoughts.
- St Andrews is known as The Home of Golf, and it's easy to get a student membership to all seven local golf courses, including the Old Course.
Culture and Nightlife
- Without the nocturnal distractions of a big city, St Andrews students grow more resourceful in creating their own fun – organising dinner parties, balls, beach bonfires, and trips to explore the highlands of Scotland, the rest of the UK and Europe, thanks to a variety of affordable travel options.
- One theory is that it is this intimate environment which has led to St Andrews' reputation as the UK's 'top matchmaking university'.
- The Scottish town also offers a variety of cafés, bars, pubs, restaurants, and high street and boutique shops as well as a university museum, the Byre Theatre, an Art Deco cinema, the oldest golf course in the world, and coastal walks.
- The university is embedded across the town, making walking and cycling the most effective way of travelling.
- During term-time the university runs a night bus service between the university library, the Students' Association building, and many halls of residence.
- There is a local bus station located in the town centre; a railway station six miles outside St Andrews, with buses to the station every ten minutes; and international airports accessible at Edinburgh (48 miles), Aberdeen (81 miles) and Glasgow (82 miles).
