Matriculation

‌‌Matriculation September 2017

The matriculation event will take place in the Gateway building:

  • for day-time students: 9am-5pm Monday 11 - Wednesday 13 September 2017
  • for evening degree students: 5pm-7pm on Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 September 2017

Matriculation is the process of registering as a student with the University and is compulsory for all students, every academic year. Like advising, it has an online part and an event held in orientation week, which some students must attend in person.

Online matriculation

The online matriculation facility is accessed through MySaint. Registry will send access details to your University email address in August (or January for semester 2 entrants and those returning from leave of absence).

As part of online matriculation, you may need to:

  • read essential information
  • pay tuition fees
  • pay accommodation fees
  • pay any outstanding debt
  • update personal details
  • complete the online training in good academic practice (sometimes referred to as TGAP)
  • read visa and passport information for UKVI (UK Visas and Immigration) documentation checks
  • sign up to the St Andrews Medical agreement (medicine students only)
  • sign up to the Matriculation Agreement (University terms and conditions)

Matriculation event

The matriculation event takes place in the Gateway building during orientation week, and also in January for students starting in semester 2 or returning from leave of absence. 

If you are a new student, or a returning international student (not UK/EU), you must attend the matriculation event in person.

  • New students must bring their passport or UK birth certificate for identity verification.
  • New students must hand in their completed application to register with the Health Centre.
  • International students must also bring their visa or biometric card for a UKVI check.

If you are a returning UK/EU student, you do not need to attend the matriculation event, though you must still complete online matriculation.

‌There will be staff at the event who can assist any students who need help with matriculation.

Failure to register

All elements of matriculation must be completed by the specified deadline, to avoid your studies being terminated.
