Equal Opportunities & Welfare
Elite doesn't have to mean elitist.
The equal opportunities and welfare team co-ordinate all the events, campaigns and lobbying to make this university accessible to everyone, and to ensure that prejudice and discrimination are not a part of the St Andrews experience.
From petitioning for widening access and accommodation scholarships, to running Disability Awareness Week and Drink Spiking campaigns, the Equal Opportunities & Welfare Committee welcome feedback on any issues you have encountered during your time at St Andrews.
