International applicants have until the end of June in the year of entry, to apply for their chosen course (with the exception of the BA (Hons) Business Management (Top-Up) course which starts in January). International applications will then close between July and mid October, before reopening for the following year of entry.
In order to produce a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance to Study) letter, we require evidence of your qualifications, documents and receipt of 50% of the total course fees.
Our commitment to you is that we will produce your CAS letter within 2 weeks of confirming your acceptance on a course (please note that this will only be within 3 months of the course start date as per government guidelines). If you do not apply for your visa by the end of July or if your application is refused, we will refund you all monies paid minus the £26 CAS letter production fee.
Your commitment to us is that you will ensure that you are eligible for a student visa by checking the government website before applying for a course and use your CAS letter to apply for a student visa by the end of July in the year of entry.
