You will need a Confirmation of Acceptance to Study, known as a CAS, to apply for a Tier 4 visa.
If your course has a placement option, please check the course length on your CAS carefully. For information on how to do this, click here.
Where you need to go to request your CAS will depend on which course you are studying:
You will receive your CAS once your offer is unconditional and you have completed the CAS Information Form and sent copies of your documents to Admissions.
After the university has processed your CAS you will be sent an email that includes the information you need to complete your Tier 4 application.
We recommend paying your course fees before requesting your CAS so that your fee payments will then be shown on your CAS. If you pay any fees after getting your CAS and before making your visa application you should contact the Admissions Office and ask them to update your CAS. Please note that it can take a few days for bank transfers to clear.
Please note that it can take five working days to produce a CAS.
