Applying for a CAS (Confirmation for Acceptance of Studies)

If you require a CAS, you must apply for this by 11 December 2020. When you request your CAS, you'll be asked to show that you have sufficient funds to cover your remaining fees (minus the deposit payment you have made) plus at least £11,385 to cover living costs.

You should be ready to provide evidence that you have these funds available and that these funds have been available for at least 28 consecutive days when you apply for your CAS. Please see our Maintenance, fees and the 28-day rule page for further details of acceptable financial evidence for your visa application. Your CAS will not be issued until you meet these requirements.

You'll be advised when enrolment for January 2021 opens and you'll receive instruction on how to complete the online enrolment process. Please note that the last date for enrolment is 29 January 2021.

If you've not fully enrolled by this date, you'll need to defer your admission to September 2021.
