St Andrews is a beautiful but small town. If you prefer big, bustling cities, you need to be prepared for small-town life in St Andrews, as it is often affectionately known as “The Bubble” amongst residents. You should also watch out for seagulls as they snatch food right out of people’s hands! However, it is an incredible place to live in and it will feel like home very quickly.

Anyone moving to St. Andrews should know the town becomes extremely busy when the students return to university, and that most local employers only employ students, so finding work in St. Andrews can be difficult. However, there are approximately five large recruitment agencies which may be of help for you.

St Andrews is a beautiful historic town on the east coast of Scotland. Visitors can expect to be welcomed by both locals and students which reside in the town. The weather varies throughout the year, so pack your raincoat, swimming shorts and bobble hat, because who knows what the weather will be doing when you arrive.
