Insight into life at Scotland’s 1st university

Friday 29 June 2001

The University of St Andrews Scottish Studies Summer Programme 2001 will be officially launched next week (Monday 2 July 2001).

The programme, which runs from 30 June until 28 July, gives teenagers first-hand experience of life at Scotland’s first University and is the only pre- college course of its kind in the UK. Now in its third year, the venture is aimed at 15-18 year old students who have successfully followed an American high school curriculum or its equivalent to at least 10th grade.

Based on Scottish studies, the programme is designed to give a flavour of the art, literature, history and culture of Scotland. Enhanced by frequent visits to sites including Loch Ness, the Cairngorms and Bannockburn, the programme is taught by University of St Andrews academics and assisted by distinguished guest speakers and graduates. A full social and recreational programme is also incorporated with this year’s intake of over 30 living in one of the University’s most central halls of residence, Hamilton Hall.
