• Starting a new course

    You will need a Confirmation of Acceptance to Study, known as a CAS, to apply for a Student visa.

    Please note that we can only issue your CAS after your offer is unconditional.

    To get your CAS you will need to complete the following first:

    • Make an application to Oxford Brookes
    • Receive an unconditional offer of a place at Oxford Brookes
    • Accept your offer as a firm place

    After you have done these things, here is the process of getting your CAS:

    Step 1

    Fill out the Visa Information Form which will be emailed to you by the International Student Compliance team (ISCT). If you would like an update on when you will receive your visa information form or CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Study) and for general queries relating to the process, contact visa-queries@brookes.ac.uk

    Step 2

    All students must provide copies of supporting documents listed in section 5 of the Visa Information Form and copies of financial documents if requested by the International Student Compliance team.


    Step 3

    Make sure you have the supporting evidence ready for your visa application. It is extremely important you check the financial requirements carefully. Contact isat@brookes.ac.uk if you have any questions related to this.


    Step 4

    The International Student Compliance team will contact you if they need further information.


    Step 5

    The International Student Compliance team will email your CAS details to you so you can submit your visa application. It is only necessary to provide the CAS number on your application - no CAS document is required by the UKVI but you will need the details on your CAS to help complete your visa application. After you receive the CAS, follow our guidance on making your visa application outside of the UK. If you require immigration advice relating to your visa application for yourself or your dependents contact isat@brookes.ac.uk
