    What's it like?
    If any, because I heard it's a really small town, with less than half the population of where I live (which is already quiet!)

    It really depends on what you're looking for.
    There's like only a couple of streets, there is the main street which has your student union, your coffee shops, subway, pubs etc and there are a lot of tourists.
    But in terms of clubbing - I heard that its just the Student Union, don't know how factual that is.
    The beach is relatively close and you can go to ceilidh every Friday etc. Some gardens, museums, aquarium, golfing etc
    Dundee is half an hour away on the bus, idk if you get a bus card or w/e but if not it's like £5 one way.

    If you do, then what is your personal opinion, do you enjoy it there? What do you not like?

    I'm a fresher. I don't club, but there are two places people go: the union (which has the Friday night Bop for like 3 pounds) and the Vic (which I think is more expensive). I quite like St Andrews, it's got gobs of societies which are constantly putting on events if that's what you're interested in but you can also just relax at home if you don't like to go out. There are four grocery stores (though two are a fair walk away from town), lots of little shops, some cute but overpriced thrift stores, and some really lovely park spaces. Round trip bus to Dundee (30-60 mins, depending on time of day) is about 7 pounds if you need to get out for a little while.

    You are going to struggle to find anywhere for 350€ (~£310) a month.

    I suggest you email [email protected] and ask them if there will be any rooms in student residences for rent over summer. My friend stayed in Stanely Smith House one summer, and I think that was between £90-100 a week.

    You could also check
    https://www.facebook.com/accommodationstandrews/ , sometimes people post looking for summer subletters. You could also post in
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/StAndrewsClassof2021/ and see if anyone has something available for summer.

    There's the hostel (http://www.hostelsstandrews.com/), their standard prices are still out of your range, but if you email them they might do a discount for a long term stay.

    What are you coming to study? You could try emailling your School (e.g. the secretaries, or your supervisor if you have one) and ask them to put an email around the department asking if anyone has a room to let.

    Many thanks for your reply.
    I will check these links.
    And I'd asked [email protected] they said it cost approximately 175 euro per week
