BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — The University of St Andrews, ranked first in the United Kingdom in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide (2022), seeks women’s water polo athletes.

Nestled on the east coast of Scotland, the small, vibrant town of St Andrews is a unique place to study and live. Wherever you walk you are reminded of its rich and colorful history with buildings both ancient and modern – from the atmospheric ruins of the cathedral and castle to the university’s modern teaching spaces. As well as a bustling center with cafés, restaurants, and shops, the town is full of natural beauty with green spaces and three beaches.

The degree programs available are comprehensive and designed to boost your transferable skills and increase your employability.

Recent graduates have gone onto a wide variety of careers around the world: from technology to business, government to National Governing Organizations (NGOs), finance and consultancy, journalism or activism, and everything in between.

The Saints Sport – St Leonard’s College Masters Scholarships are fee reducing scholarships that are open to international applicants for eligible postgraduate (taught) Masters degree programs. We welcome applications from talented student athletes looking to extend their playing career, whilst continuing their studies.

There are no eligibility restrictions on playing sport and representing the University whilst studying for a postgraduate qualification at St Andrews.
