St Andrew’s College offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities to suit a wide spectrum of interests. Students can choose from various sports, clubs and societies and social activities.

We strongly believe that students who take part in a variety of extra-curricular activities develop their self-confidence, improve their organisation along with their ability to work as part of a team. Universities tend to offer places to well-rounded individuals with hobbies and interests that differ from their academic discipline, so we advise our students to get involved in as many activities as possible to both broaden their interests and have fun!
