Preparing to study
You’ve received an offer, what next?
Applying and receiving an offer is the start of your journey to study with us, there are a few more steps you need to take before we see you on campus.
You must request your CAS by the published deadlines, at the latest. Please note that these CAS request deadlines are based on standard visa processing times, and are set in conjunction with the University. For some programmes, the CAS will be issued by Study Group; for other programmes, the Combined visa (iCAS) is issued by the University. If the deadlines for your programme are not yet currently listed, you will be contacted by Admissions when the information is available.

“The International Study Centre is a very important step that I think students should take, especially if it’s your first time in this country. It doesn’t just prepare you academically; it also prepares you for life in a different city, so it’s an important progression.”
