Freshers 2020 Virtual Fayres

You will need to register for each event in order to attend. To register, click here.

The Students' Association and its affiliates run a number of events during Freshers where you can meet members of societies and University departments to sign up or get involved in the wide range of activities available. This year these events will be online using Hopin. There's no denying the experience will be different, but we've put loads of work into making the events great.

At each event you'll be able to chat with students and staff running stalls using video or text chat. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, as well as to buy membership or sign up to mailing lists. You'll also be able to watch videos and live presentations that give you insight into each group represented at the fayre.

For the best experience, please use Chrome or Firefox to access the event. Other browsers may work, but with limited functionality.

The annual Music Fayre, hosted by the University of St Andrews Music Society, provides both new and returning students with the opportunity to sign up to musical ensembles. From orchestras and bands to choirs and a cappella groups, members from each will be on hand to discuss the experience their group offers. Attendance is a must for any musician/music lover in St Andrews!

Charitable & Volunteering Fayre

Friday 11th, 15:00-17:00

There’s lots of local volunteering opportunities in and around St Andrews, as well as a number of different ways to fundraise through our many charitable societies. The Charitable and Volunteering Fayre is organised by the University of St Andrews Charities Campaign – the charitable branch of the Students’ Association that every student is a member of. If you’re wanting to raise money for charity, find a society of people who have similar interests to you or want to volunteer in the local community then this fayre is the place to be!

Sports Fayre

Saturday 12th, 12:00-15:00

Sports Fayre 2020 is an excellent opportunity to learn about all 52 of our wonderful clubs. From Aikido to Windsurfing, there's something for everyone. If you weren't able to make it to the in-person event at the start of the week this is your chance to speak to enthusiastic student representatives and find your new team. It's an excellent way to start your year in St Andrews and a great chance to make friends! #GoSaints #evertoexcel
