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.
To accept your offer of a place at the University, you must complete these two steps:
- Accept your offer within three weeks of receiving the offer, or following your successful interview. Follow the link to the acceptance form for your programme:
- Pay your deposit. Sponsored applicants must provide a financial guarantee letter from their sponsor to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to decline your offer, please email email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
