After receiving an offer
Once you have received an offer to study at the University of St Andrews, there are a few steps you will need to take to secure your place at the University.
Answers to your pre-arrival questions
If you recently attended an International Foundation webinar read the pre-arrival information (PowerPoint) for answers to your questions.
To accept your offer of a place at the University, you must complete these two steps:
1. Accept your offer after your interview has been confirmed as successful. Follow the link to the acceptance form for your programme:
- Management, Economics and Finance - September entry
- Social Sciences and Humanities - September entry
- Science - September entry
- Medicine - September entry
- Two-year Pathway to Medicine - September entry
To accept an offer for a programme starting in January 2020, visit the January acceptance form.
If you wish to decline your offer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and quote your student ID number.
If you have received a conditional offer you will need to provide evidence to show that you meet the conditions of your offer. This evidence might be an IELTS for UKVI test report form, or a final transcript from your high school, or a reference letter.
Please submit your evidence as soon as it becomes available by uploading it to your applicant portal. To sign in, you will need the username and password you created for your application.
Students who will require a visa should begin their visa application only once their offer changes from conditional to unconditional. You will be notified by email from email@example.com when your offer becomes unconditional.
An offer becomes unconditional when:
- you have accepted your offer
- you have paid your deposit
- you have met all the conditions of your offer
- you have made the further payment.
Please refer to your unconditional offer email from firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on the further payment and instructions on how to obtain a CAS number (if you need a visa to study in the UK).
Once you have paid your deposit, met all your conditions and your offer has changed from conditional to unconditional, you should have paid £11,000 or provided a financial guarantee letter if you are a sponsored student.
You should pay the rest of your fees in or before Orientation.

Students joining an International Foundation programme do not need to apply for accommodation but they are required to accept their offer of accommodation to ensure a room is allocated to them at David Russell Apartments prior to their arrival.
Check your email account regularly (the account you provided when you submitted your application). The offer of accommodation, and instructions on how to accept it, will be sent by email from Student Accommodation Services during July and August. If you have any questions about your accommodation please contact email@example.com quoting your student ID number.
Approximately six weeks before your course starts, you will receive an email with information on how to activate your University computer account and email, as well as further pre-arrival guidance including instructions on how to book your transfer from Edinburgh or Glasgow airport, or from Leuchars train station.
