Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS ) request form


  • Please complete this CAS request form if you need to extend your visa to complete your current course of study, apply for a new visa to return to your studies after temporarily interrupting your studies or you wish to apply for the Doctorate Extension Scheme. Note, new students are provided with their CAS as part of the admissions process and should not complete this form.

  • Your visa application
  • If you are applying in the UK the International Adviser can check your visa application and supporting documents before you submit your application. If you are applying in the UK and have not yet booked an appointment, please email to arrange this. If you are applying outside the UK, the International Adviser can still support you with your visa application and where possible, we strongly recommend arranging an appointment.
  • Your finances
    As part of your visa application you will have to demonstrate your ability to fund your tuition fees and living costs for the next academic year. Your evidence must demonstrate you have at least £9,135 for living costs (reduced if you have less than 9 months of your course remaining) plus any outstanding tuition fees for the next year of your course. The most commonly used document to demonstrate finance is a bank statement. If you need further advice regarding financial evidence please contact
  • Unless you are a national of one of the listed countries in Appendix H of the immigration rules, please email the financial evidence you will use for your visa application to – your CAS will not be issued until this is received.
