University of St Andrews: Summer Academic Experience Courses

  • Crimson Education
  • United Kingdom


The Summer Academic Experience Courses offers pupils the unique opportunity to experience courses taught in the Scottish academic tradition by current academic staff. Students will get to study an academic subject of their choice, whilst also developing their academic research and writing skills. Students on these courses must have a good level of English.

Students will receive a student ID card and will have free access to our world-class facilities, including the library and newly redeveloped sports centre.

It is with extreme regret that we have had to cancel SAEC for 2020. It was a difficult decision but we could not take the risk of encouraging people to travel and risk exposure to the coronavirus when we have no real idea of when it would be safe to travel again.

We are very grateful to all of those who applied or simply enquired about our courses this year and would like to assure you that we will be back in 2021, more determined than ever to make the programme a great success.

This all-inclusive fee covers:

  • tuition and instruction
  • reading material
  • lab equipment and sports equipment
  • accommodation
  • breakfast, lunch and dinner daily
  • transportation to and from the airport on arrival and departure
  • the extracurricular programme including guest presentations
  • field trips
  • all cultural and social activities organised
  • Sports Centre membership.
