Women’s performance football programme

St Andrews offers students a world-leading academic education alongside a professionally run performance football programme that fosters a healthy relationship between athlete and student.

Led by full time Director of Football Stuart Milne, our vision is to offer one of the best performance football programmes in the UK, to enable our top players and staff to develop and progress to the best of their abilities and to compete at the highest level possible year in, year out.

We aim to provide the very best support and a comprehensive programme of training, allowing our students to harness their full potential and gain the very best football experience whilst at St Andrews.

Scholarships are aimed at players who are already competing at a high level and who believe they have the necessary attributes to be part of a performance football programme whilst studying for their degree in St Andrews.

With world-class facilities, highly experienced coaches, and a comprehensive support programme, you’ll have access to a professional football environment that provides all you will need to take your game and your education to the highest level as part of the truly unique student experience.
