College counsellors conference

Each year, the University invites college counsellors and advisors to experience St Andrews in person on the annual college counsellor conference. The programme provides the opportunity for counsellors to tour the University, meet staff and students, and learn about our admission requirements and procedures.

College counsellors from the 2017 conference

In February 2017, 63 counsellors from across North America and a host of other countries attended St Andrews, walking the cobbled streets and meeting academic and support departments. It was a great privilege to share the University with the 2017 attendees.

2018 conference

The 2018 conference will take place from Thursday 22 February 2018 to Friday 23 February 2018. Counsellors will arrive on Wednesday 21 February and depart on Saturday 24 February 2018.

Accommodation will be provided for tour participants for three nights in St Andrews: the night before the start of the official programme and the two nights of the programme itself. Some meals will be provided. Unfortunately, the University is unable to assist with flight expenses, but will make every effort to collect participants from Edinburgh or Glasgow airport the day before the official programme begins and return them the day after it finishes.

A detailed itinerary for the conference will be available nearer to the start of the event.
