St Andrews University

Congratulations St Andrews!

St Andrews University, our ISSOS summer school home in Scotland, has been named the best university in the UK by the Guardian's University Guide for 2023. The top spot has nearly always been held by Cambridge and Oxford, but this year St Andrews has taken the top honors! The league table ranks universities across the UK by subject, student satisfaction, staff numbers, spending, and career prospects. 

Lots of our students attend our summer school campuses because they want to find out what life might be like if they chose to study at that university when they leave school. So if you want to study at the UK's number 1 university and want to find out more about life in St Andrews, then we can help!

St Andrews summer school

Our programme in St Andrews is based within the University, so students can spend the 3-week session with us truly getting an idea of life at the University of St Andrews.

All of our students choose one Academic and one elective to focus on for the duration of the programme and, outside of classes, evenings and weekends are filled with our varied and exciting evening programmes, cultural trips, Clan events and time spent with new friends from all over the world.

If you'd like to find out more about how ISSOS works you can find out more from our website, or you can also email us at and we are always happy to help.
