Extending your visa for retakes and placements

You should start planning at least 2 months before your current visa expires and always before your course end date. Please do not request your CAS if you are expecting module results, as the results may affect the end date of your course. 

Please note that you will not be issued a CAS for a placement unless you have secured a placement, and that you will need to submit your visa application prior to starting the placement. 

 The University will not issue a CAS to cover your resit period, or to await your results. Refer to our Resits and your Student visa webpage for more information.

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 the Student Support Coordinators (SSC) in 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 SSCs 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@brookes.ac.uk) along with:

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.  

Please note that if you have an outstanding debt to the university for tuition or accommodation fees, you will not be issued a CAS until they are fully paid.

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.
