I previously overstayed as a visitor in the UK for 2 years and 7 months. I returned to my home country voluntarily at my own expense. i stayed out of the UK for 1 year and 11 months. i dont have an overstayer stamp on my passport. i applied for university in the UK and got accepted. There isnt a question about overstaying on a visa application so do i state the overstay on my own or answer only what is asked?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions about immigration or moving for extended periods of time (studies or employment, among others) are off-topic. Our sister site, Expatriates Stack Exchange might be a better place to ask. See also the meta post Is it OK to ask questions about immigration?." – Traveller, Giorgio, David Richerby, gmauch, Newton
You only need to answer what is asked but student visas are heavily scrutinized and the likelihood of you receiving one after overstaying is minimal.
I hope you didn’t spend a lot of money on the school’s application fee or send them a deposit.
