Visa confirmation events

Visa confirmation event

The University of St Andrews is a Tier 4 Sponsor. This means that we are able to welcome students from all over the world to study at our beautiful and ancient institution.

If you are a non-EU national and will be studying at the University of St Andrews under a Tier 4 visa, you will be required to have your passport and visa documentation verified twice each academic year by a member of staff.  Verification will take place at matriculation and as part of the confirmation event held in Week 2 of Semester 2.

Verification of your passport and visa is a compulsory requirement and prior to each event you will receive information on what you are required to do.

If you need to renew your visa whilst studying at the University please contact our International Advisers at, or see the information for International students.

If you have any queries regarding passport/visa checks or the confirmation event please do not hesitate to contact us at
