You may need to agree to use the priority/super priority option to get your CAS from Brookes if you are applying late.
As part of your application, you will need to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) For more information on IHS fees, visit our IHS webpage.
Whether you are starting a new course, extending your visa for retakes, or returning from Approved Temporary Withdrawal, our Getting my CAS page explains what you need to do to request your CAS, including the financial evidence you need to prepare and supporting evidence needed for your visa application.
It is essential you look at the financial evidence and supporting documents pages carefully - if you do not submit the correct documents this will delay your CAS.
You will need to apply online in the country where you are normally living, unless you are
applying in North Korea

Non-EU, EEA and Swiss Nationals
You will be asked to attend a Visa Application Centre (VAC) as part of your application to have your fingerprints and photograph taken (biometrics). The VAC webpages for your country will have more detailed information, including if there are priority options available.
EU, EEA and Swiss Nationals
If your passport has a biometric chip, you do not need to attend a biometrics appointment but you will need to use the 'UK Immigration: ID Check app' to scan your identity document and upload your photo.
The link below tells you how to use the app. There is also a helpline in the link if you are having problems completing your application or scanning your chip.
Using the ‘UK Immigration: ID Check’ app >>
If you do not have a biometric passport or cannot use the app, you will need to go to a visa application centre to verify your identity. You will do this after you have completed the online application.
Most people are interviewed as part of the application process. You must make sure you are very well prepared for your interview as if you are not your visa application could be refused.
Check your emails regularly to see if you have been invited to attend a credibility interview (including your 'spam/junk' emails). Failure to attend your interview could lead to a refusal.

You should not book your flight until after you have received your new visa back from the Home Office.
