Since 2001, Washington and Lee University and the University of St Andrews have partnered to provide a study abroad experience in two tracks. St Andrews, Scotland's first University offers historical surroundings in which to study business, social sciences, or the humanities, or the sciences.
Course of Study
All students on the program must complete at least 60 credit hours in the St Andrews system to be considered full-time. Students normally are not allowed to register for more than 70 credit hours. Students should enroll in 2000, 3000 or 4000 level classes in the humanities, although it is possible to enroll in a new subject at a lower level.
Students are free to choose courses from the St Andrews curriculum in so far as prerequisites and departmental policies there allow (there may be courses for which you are not eligible).
Students should look through the St Andrews course catalogue to find suitable course offerings; single semester courses are offered in increments of 10, 15, 20 and 30 credits. These credits generally correspond to 2, 3, 5, and 7 W&L credits.
Students at St Andrews for the Martinmas or fall semester there are scheduled to complete final assessments (exams or other assessment instruments) by the last day of classes before the Christmas holiday.
Students on the program will be automatically enrolled in and integrated into normal St Andrews housing.
