    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.
    It will depend on the subject and if you've applied for joint honours or not. If you search for your subject(s) in the Applicants 2016 thread, you'll probably find posts (and dates) of people getting offers last year (of course, there's no guarantee that it will be the same this time).

    It can take a while - my offer came at the end of February, a friend of mine got their's mid-March, but it can be later than that.

    All the best!

    Hi people! I need a little guidance. I've applied to all of the "big 5" unis in Scotland to study German with Politics/IR. So far I have an unconditional from Edinburgh, which I'm pretty much sold on at this stage, but I don't want to rule St. Andrews out given its reputation for IR and Humanities in general, really. The big turn-off for me is location. I grew up in Fife so have been to St Andrews more times than I can count. It's a lovely, vibrant little place that I really do like visiting, but I'm bored of it after a couple hours. Therefore I'm not too sure how I'd enjoy living there, as it doesn't seem like much of a change from home.
    Edinburgh on the other hand would be a completely new experience for me, having never lived in a city. I love the place, and the idea of living there suits me down to the ground.
    My question is, with all I've said, would there still be grounds for picking St Andrews over Edinburgh given its slightly better reputation in humanities and the IR department? It seems like choosing between a Ferrari and a Lambo, but I want to be confident I'm making the right choice

    Tbh its up to you, st Andrews has a good rep and you can always visit Edinburgh if you want its 30 minutes away apparently or you can live in a big city. Edinburgh is an equally good university, your not really loosing out on anything.

    Edinburgh is not 30 min from St Andrews, it's an hour by train & more by car.

    I never received an e-mail, questionnaire or anything like that. They just said RUK. I'm guessing from my UCAS form.

    Well, honestly it comes down to what you would like in a uni, a small but charming community type uni, or a vibrant but less personal type uni. St Andrews does have a great reputation for IR, but Edinburgh is pretty good for IR also. I'm having the same issue except with French and IR. Have you visited the universities and met with departmental personnel? I'm leaning towards Edinburgh as well but i'm going to visit, so after I speak with someone from my department and tour the places, I'll probably make my final decision.

    Took about an hour and a half for me to get to the open day back in October from Edinburgh.

    Just choose which one you like most instead of worrying about which has a slightly better reputation. Both Edinburgh and St Andrews are great and honestly if I got an offer from both I'd have 0 clue who to choose.
    St. Andrews has a better uk wide ranking but Edinburgh does better in world wide rankings so i don't think looking at rankings will work so much.
    TBH I would love the opportunity to live in central Edinburgh.
    But St Andrews is a beautiful town, I don't think choosing either will leave you with regrets cause theyre both great.
    In the end you'll know which you like the most, you don't have to decide yet!

    Well when they asked me to fill it in they said it was because they could not ascertain it from my UCAS form
