A student run society that is dedicated to improving the experience of state school students at the University of St Andrews.
Welcome to the 93% Club St Andrews! We are a student run society that is dedicated to improving the experience of state school students at the University of St Andrews.
We aim to break down the divide between state and private school students and ensure that students from state school backgrounds have an equally positive experience during university and post graduation. 93% of the UK’s high school students are state educated, yet at St Andrews our cohort represents 60.2% of the total student body.
The University of St Andrews has the second highest density of privately educated students in the UK. There is an expressed need to voice the experiences and opinions of state school students and specifically address and alleviate our gap in social capital and future career opportunities post-graduation.
The original 93% Club was founded by Sophie Pender of Bristol University and is now a fast growing network of societies at traditionally elite and Russell Group universities.
The 93% Club’s key aims are to;
1) Offer a safe space for students with state school backgrounds to share experiences, opinions and concerns through informal social events; to express their voices and campaign on the issues they believe in.
2) Provide students from state school backgrounds useful professional development and skills workshops, speaker events and networking opportunities, and provide specific social and educational resources.
3) Build an empowering social community for state-school students at St Andrews (during and post university) to allow post-graduation guidance, alumni connections and be part of the fast growing network of 93% Club societies at traditionally elite British universities.

We are here solely for students of the University of St Andrews. We exist to make the student experience as strong as it can be, to provide services for students, and to represent student views to the University and beyond. We are a charity registered in Scotland and we are mostly volunteers, from members of the SRC and SSC to Ents Crew, all the society committee members to the Trustees of our Board.
