Actually I'm pretty sure St. Andrews' policy for every course is 1/3 European+Scottish students, 1/3 RUK, 1/3 internationals. I don't remember on which part of the site I read it though, I'll try and have a look


You have no idea how happy I would be if that's true 😁 Like I said, the information I found was just about Edinburgh πŸ˜…

Current 1st year student at St Andrews, feel free to ask me any questions
Hi, what's the general opinion on student life? mainly stuff like bars/ clubs? Do a lot of people travel to Dundee or is there enough in St Andrews? Also how expensive is it to travel to Dundee etc for nightlife/ gigs?

Thanks

I applied for biochemistry (not straight biology but it's under the biology department) Is St Andrews your first choice??

Congratulations on your offers! How long did it take for you to hear back from Warwick? I'm expecting them to take a little bit of time as they have changed the philosophy curriculum, and have been asking applicants via e-mail if they are still interested in applying / giving support for those wanting to change courses.

Yeah, I'm so impatient. I just want to know their decision asap. But I will be really upset if they don't give me an offer. Probably hibernate for a few weeks, haha.
Hi! They were fast for me actually, I think my offer came in two days after I submitted my application😊 Ah I see, I did apply for straight psychology though so yeah I see how that might be annoying! Also I'm guessing yours has to go through two departments so takes twice as long. And me, is St. A your first choice?

Yes it is! I haven't actually had a chance to visit yet (as I live in Cornwall, which is quite a distance away!), but I'm sooooo excited and feel like it's perfect for me!! Is it your first choice too?

I'm not 100% sure yet but I think I will put it as first choice - I hadn't been yet either because I'm from Northern Ireland but my sister is in her 1st year there studying maths and she absolutely loves it, I'm going to visit her there in Easter so im very excited!

Heyy I'm applying for Arabic, Russian and French!!! Is St. Andrews your first choice?
Hi!! St Andrews is my second choice at the moment after Durham. And I've found another Arabic applicant!! How come you're applying for Arabic? and what extra things have you done for it to show interest?

It's the same as the rest of the uk - I think some people can get reduced fees if they have an Irish passport but that doesn't apply to me

You got classified as Home/EU for having an Irish mother wow?! My mother is also Irish but I didn't bother arguing that I'm 'accompanying' her in England as I've lived here my entire life. But I've been classed as Home/EU for having lived in the EU anyway so doesn't really matter.

Oh I also grew up in Belgium for 4 years but didn't think that that would have affected my fee status (figured it was more of a nationality thing)

I did a lot of digging when I received the fee status questionnaire (as I was so surprised I'd received one) and that's when I found out I was eligible through having lived in the EU. You can be eligible through having an EU parent if you can successfully argue that you are 'accompanying' them in the UK. (Think I might have said that already somewhere whoops)

That used to be the case I believe but they changed the rules so that's no longer true

I know they've given out some already but the vast majority of offers is apparently after the deadline.
How long after deadline do you think they'll let UK citizens know.

Does anyone know of an official Facebook group chat or any other sort of group chat for accepted students?
