• Extending your visa for resits/retakes

    You should start planning 4 months before your current visa expires, but your CAS will not be issued more than 3 months before your visa expires. Please do not request your CAS just before you are expecting module results as the results may affect the end date of your course.

    Step 1

    Check all the modules you need to do to complete your course are on your Student Information portal and that your course end date is correct. Your programme must be correct in order for your CAS to be issued. Follow the 2 steps below:

    1. For help with your programme, make an appointment to see your Student Support Coordinators for your Faculty. You will then know which modules you will need to add to complete your programme.
    2. Go onto the module registration page to add your modules. If you are not able to add modules via this link, you will need to see your Student Support Coordinator for help with this. Please bear in mind it will take time to sort your programme so please give yourself plenty of time.

    Step 2

    Make sure you have the correct documents for your visa application. It is extremely important that you check the financial requirements carefully and give yourself plenty of time to get these ready.

    Step 3

    Fill in the visa information form and email it to the International Student Advice team (ISAT), isat@brookes.ac.uk, along with:
    • your passport photo page
    • your current and previous visas
    • your  financial evidence if you are not a country on the  Differential Requirement List.

    • For those students who are applying for permission to stay in the UK, if you have been in the UK for at least 12 months with valid permission on the date of application, you may not need to show financial evidence to get your CAS or for your visa application.  Email isat@brookes.ac.uk to check if this applies to you.  

    Step 4

    Providing the documents in Step 3 meet the UKVI requirements, the International Student Compliance Team should email your CAS within 5 working days.
