The Open Association exists as a link between the University and the town, and seeks to straddle the requirement for both challenging and relaxing activities within the University’s walls for the population of St Andrews and beyond.
This year’s programme contains the well-known tutors who present opera, geology, music and literature courses. We are introducing creative writing and psychology and trust that the wildlife observation that began last year will continue in the same enthusiastic vein. We have a full cohort of speakers for the Friday lectures and for Retirement is Opportunity (which will now be one day per week). The talks have the usual range of topics, which we hope will be interesting and informative to all our participants.
