Visa confirmation events

Visa confirmation event

The University of St Andrews is a Student visa 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 studying at the University of St Andrews under a Student visa, you will be required to have your passport and visa documentation verified twice each year by a member of staff. Verification will take place at matriculation and at the confirmation event held in Week 3 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 support for international students pages.

If you have any queries regarding passport and visa checks or the confirmation event please contact us at
