St. Andrews, Scotland
Founded in 1410, St. Andrews is Scotland’s oldest university. Over the past five-and-a-half centuries, St. Andrews has proudly upheld the Scottish tradition of academic excellence, attracting scholars of international reputation and students from all over the world. St. Andrews continues to offer the latest in teaching and research, all within a superbly picturesque medieval setting. Students in good academic standing who are interested in either a semester or a full year of study are eligible to apply. Courses reflect the Scottish education system, broader based than the English and closer to the American system. Progress is monitored at both the individual and class level, with small group discussion reinforced by lectures and lab work. Hillsdale College students who matriculate to St. Andrews have the opportunity of studying subject areas from Ancient History to Theoretical Physics. Applications and course information are available from the Director of the Russell Amos Kirk Program in American Studies, Dr. Kevin Portteus.
