St. Andrews Admissions US Applicants - Fall 2022

Didn’t see a thread yet for St. Andrews Class of 2026, so starting one here!

Please post if you hear back with a decision.

I applied 9/28 and received a request for transcript upload on 10/7. Will post when I hear a decision!


You might want to post in the UK forum.

There are several older St Andrews threads there.

I applied to IR on September 26th via UCAS, downloaded my high school profile / in progress transcript in the portal on October 6th, and I am anxiously awaiting a response from StA. I received an offer from Glasgow and Oregon, both of which I am really happy about. Still waiting on Edinburgh, Durham too. I will post when I receive update on my application.

Applied with same outcome (transcript uploaded and scores). Keeping my fingers crossed!

@ColoradoCanadian just as an fyi- IR is historically one of the slower depts to reply so don’t get anxious if it takes a while.

Glasgow is a super college experience btw!

Hi! Congrats! When did you upload your trancsript etc?

Hi! I received an offer today for Economics and Politics, and I haven’t seen any online threads or groups for the Fall 2022 applicants

My son got an unconditional offer for CS today. Applied on Oct 1.

I applied to IR on November 27th and I still haven’t heard anything… I expected it to take a long time but wow.

From the pov of StA’s your app has only been with them a few weeks! IR is one of the most popular courses & they are famously one of the slowest depts to come out with decisions, esp if you are not a slam-dunk or auto-reject candidate!

I haven’t heard back as well for Econ and IR and I applied on Nov 10. Does anyone know approximately when I can expect a response back?

@dishanambiar, nobody knows. It’s just waiting.

My child applied IR 12/14 and received an unconditional offer about a month later. I have read that applying to two programs can take twice the time. There as helpful information on the St. Andrews Class 2025 thread. Good luck to all!

Not necessarily double, but yes, it typically does take longer, because both departments have to agree on the candidate. And, as above, the fastest responses are the slam-dunk yeses and the auto-reject noes.

Really, it’s just a lot of patience!

Believe it or not I got my unconditional acceptance at 3:00 a.m. last night! Best of luck to you, I guess the patience pays off!


Congratulations @31caracas13!!

(wait- were you were up checking email at 3am?! or was that just the time stamp on the mail?)

Haha that was just the timestamp, thankfully. I love to sleep a little too much for that.

hi what department is your offer from

My daughter received an unconditional offer today in English (yay). She applied in late October. Good luck everyone!
