Direct application

The University of St Andrews accepts direct applications from a small number of students each year. You should only submit a direct application if:

  • The University of St Andrews is the only UK university you are applying to.
  • You are liable to pay tuition fees at the overseas rate. You can find out more about your fee status on the tuition fees page.
  • You are not applying to any other UK universities via UCAS or the Common Application.

Applicants for the BA International Honours joint degree with William & Mary can apply through either our direct application or through the Common Application, even if they have applied for other programmes through UCAS.

In order for us to begin processing your application, payment of an application fee of £50 (pounds sterling) is required. You will need to complete the payment process before you submit your application. Details on how to pay can be found on the University's online shop.
