Based in the Royal Burgh of St Andrews, the home of golf and the oldest seat of learning in Scotland, ISSOS in St Andrews provides a unique environment for our students’ international summer experience.

Swilken Bridge Swilken Bridge History is ingrained in every stone of St Andrews. This fascinating town is the internationally renowned home of golf and every year thousands of golfers and tourists travel to St Andrews to behold the world famous Old Course and Royal and Ancient Golf Club and to experience and admire some of the most famous golf courses in the world.

St Andrews is also home to Scotland’s oldest university, founded in 1412. The elegant, ivy-clad buildings and delightful quadrangles and gardens of St Andrews University have seen a procession of famous graduates, including John Knox and John Napier – and, more recently, Prince William.

The town of St Andrews is packed with history, tradition and culture and the golden beaches of this idyllic coastal location provide not only a unique and breathtaking backdrop but also a stimulating, exciting and, above all, safe environment for students to spend their summer.
