Make sure you are ready for your studies at St Mary's

Progressing from college to university is a big step for anyone, but by ensuring that you are well prepared, this step can be a seamless transition.

Get Set To Study


Before you start you will want to ensure that you confirm your place via UCAS and that you are clear about both your accommodation and financial situations.

If you are an international student may need to undertake a few more steps, such as applying for a visa, in order to be fully prepared for your studies. More information can be found in the International section.

Are You Ready?For those who have applied, tours of the campus and on-site halls of residence are available on Post-Application Visit Days.

Are You Ready? is a St Mary's platform for soon-to-be students who have accepted our offer. It breaks down what you should expect within your first few weeks at the university. Course-specific pages will help you prepare for your first lectures and assignments. We aim to ensure that new students understand all key terms that they may come across during their time at St Mary's by offering a tailored 'SIMMionary'.
