Many students studying at St Andrews will be staying here over the Christmas and New Year Period and to encourage you to make the most of those holidays locally, Transition along with Student Services are providing a programme of events and things to do, to make this period more enjoyable. Not only that, but by spending your holidays locally, this will help to reduce your carbon footprint.

A Programme of events if found below, but also check out our ‘Local Holidaying’ web page, which has lots of ideas of things to do and places to visit during the holidays:
