International Students

If you require a Tier 4 visa, you will need:

  • CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) from the University: We recommend that you accept the offer and send documents to satisfy conditions no later than 10th December 2018. A CAS number will allow you to apply for your visa.
  • ATAS clearance: For certain programmes, you will need to have ATAS clearance. If you are required to apply for ATAS clearance, this will be indicated in the offer of admission. The ATAS application can be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/academic-technology-approval-scheme. Applications can be submitted 6 months before the programme start date and can be submitted while the offer is conditional.
  • TB test: Some applicants are required to take a TB (Tuberculosis) test before submitting the visa application. The test is valid for 6 months and the test certificate must be valid when you submit the visa application. More information about this can be found at www.gov.uk/tb-test-visa/overview.
