Program Description:


Founded in 1413, St Andrews is Scotland's oldest university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world. In 2013, St Andrews celebrates its 600th university. The student population of the university is 7,200 with a third of the student body from overseas. The university boasts 17 academic schools and learning centers, and W&M student may select courses from across the full university curriculum. Please note, 20 St Andrews credits is equivalent to 5 W&M credits.

St Andrews is situated on Scotland's picturesque East Coast. The campus lies in the heart of the town, mingling with shops, offices and houses. Students may avail themselves of a modern, purpose-built library and sports center with playing fields in addition to all other university facilities. Distant hills and the sea are seldom out of view when at St Andrews.

The tuition exchange agreement between the College of William & Mary and the University of St Andrews allows W&M students to pay their regular tuition to W&M while taking classes at St. Andrews.  The exchange program is best for VA in-state students. Students not chosen for the exchange program have the option of assisted enrollment, which requires W&M students to pay tuition directly to St Andrews. Out-of-state students often find that assisted enrollment is the best option. All W&M students will pay housing, meals and fees to St Andrews.

Please note, exchange and assisted enrollment programs at St Andrews are not part of the William & Mary/St Andrews Joint Degree Program. For further information on the joint degree visit
