If you already hold an unconditional offer you can request a CAS after the 1st of March by completing the online CAS Request Form. Please note that all the supporting documents should be returned to the Admissions office via email to email@example.com. If you have a conditional offer, you must first meet the condition of your offer and be issued an unconditional offer.
Student Visa applications can be submitted no more than 6 month before the course start date, if you are applying from outside the UK.
Applicants who apply from inside the UK can apply up to 3 months before the course start date.
The Admissions team will allocate you a CAS Number, normally from April or June onwards, after receiving your completed and signed CAS Request form, a clear scanned copy of your passport and CAS Fee Payment. We will need to see evidence that you meet all aspects of the Students Visa (formerly Tier 4 Visa) eligibility, including the financial requirements, unless exempt.
You will need to send us copies of the financial documents for verification, even if you are not required to provide it with your initial application under the 'differential evidence requirement for a Student' (see ST.22.1 of Appendix Student for more information). US Nationals using US Federal Loans to cover all of their tuition fees and living expenses will not need to provide this evidence to us.
We will email your CAS Number and our Sponsor Licence Number which you will need to put in the visa application. You do not need to provide a hard copy of your CAS as this is provided electronically to UKVI (UK Visas and Immigration).
CAS fees can be paid online by credit/debit card via the University of London ‘Epay’) link:
