Once you have received an offer, you will be invited to one of our Saturday Visiting Days.

Note: these visiting days are for students who have already applied to study Computer Science at St Andrews and have received an offer. If you have not decided whether to apply yet, then please consider attending one of the University's visiting days first.

Our Saturday Visiting Days comprise a full programme to show you what studying Computer Science here is all about. You will hear talks from lecturers, professors and current students. You will try out some computer science exercises in one of our lecture theatres with the chance to win some prizes. You will hear about some of our research projects.

After the Computer Science programme, you can visit one explore the town of St Andrews. Finally, you will have the opportunity to attend a dinner with other applicants, undergraduate and postgraduate students, and members of staff. This will give you the chance to ask any remaining questions in an informal setting.
