St Andrews Summer School

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.

ISSOS is a great program because there is so much variety at the school. ISSOS has totally changed the way I see the world. I have different opinions on topics because of the experiences I have had at ISSOS. I feel that as long as I put myself out there when I am at ISSOS, I can do whatever I want and they are just going to help me to achieve things. That's really the greatest thing ever. I love all the friends I meet there and we all agree immediately that after one week it feels like we've known each other forever. It's almost magical.
