USAC’s partnership with University of St. Andrews provides you with the rich opportunity to study at one of the top 10 universities in Britain. You will take regular university classes alongside students from Scotland, elsewhere in the United Kingdom and from abroad. Students generally select their courses from a single Faculty – equivalent to a School or College within a US university. You may take courses from other Faculties if scheduling allows. Courses are subject to availability and approval of prerequisites which are determined by St. Andrews.
