CAS countdown

Untitled Page

A CAS - Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies - is a unique 14-digit alpha-numeric reference number and information that you’ll need to complete your visa application form.

The earliest you can apply for your Tier 4 student visa is three months before the start of your course and, for most countries, the British Embassy Entry Clearance Officers will let you have the decision on your visa within three weeks of receiving your application.

Please note that your CAS won’t be issued until you have met all the conditions of your offer, including paying your deposit and sending us a copy of the information page from your passport.

If your CAS issuing date has passed or if you have any doubts, please contact us at aruint@anglia.ac.uk or +44 1245 683680 to discuss alternative options and possibilities.
