A CAS is a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies. Once you have accepted your unconditional offer, completed the Tier 4 Eligibility Questionnaire, paid the deposit (where needed) and obtained Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) clearance (if required for your course), we will provide you with a CAS number for your visa application. As a sponsor, we are bound by law to abide by the regulations set out under the Tier 4 Sponsor Guidance. We may have to make checks on academic progression, length of time spent studying in the UK and financial capabilities of students prior to issuing a CAS.
Deadline for issuing confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS)
Deadline date: Early September 2020 (subject to change). If you apply close to the deadline date, the University may contact you to discuss your circumstances before making a final decision on whether it is appropriate to issue you with
a CAS statement. You may be asked to provide evidence that you are able to arrange your visa application and arrive in good time.
