How to apply

The application deadline for all of our courses beginning in January 2021 is 30 November 2020. If your application arrives after this date, you'll need to defer your admission to September 2021.

When you receive your offer of a place, you'll need to meet the conditions of your offer by a certain date. 

  • If you're an International or EU applicant who needs a CAS (Confirmation for Acceptance of Studies) in order to apply for a student visa, then this date is 4 December 2020.
  • If you're a Home or EU applicant who doesn't need a CAS, then this date is 11 December 2020.

If you need to pay a deposit, you'll need to make your payment by 4 December 2020.

Please note: Some of our 2021 January-start courses normally begin in September only, but the additional January-start date has been introduced exceptionally this year.

Applying for a CAS

The deadline for applying for a CAS (Confirmation for Acceptance of Studies) is 11 December 2020.

In order to receive your CAS, you'll need to be able to show that you have enough funds to cover your fees (minus the deposit payment you have made) plus at least £11,385 to cover your living costs, and that these funds have been available for at least 28 consecutive days. Please see our Maintenance, fees and the 28-day rule page for guidance on what financial evidence you can use for your visa application.
