Apply for Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS)

A CAS is a unique code which will enable you to apply for a Tier 4 visa.

York St John University will become your sponsor in the UK after you have been issued with a CAS.

When to apply

You can apply for your CAS after you’ve met all offer conditions. The conditions include 50% payment of the first year's tuition fees if you are on a degree programme. If you are taking a pre-sessional course before your degree programme, you’ll also need to pay all of the pre-sessional course fees before you can apply for a CAS.

The earliest you will receive your CAS is three months before your course start date. For example: if your course starts in September, you will receive your CAS in June or later.

How do I apply for a CAS? 

You will need to complete the CAS application form and submit it to

Receiving your CAS

Your CAS will be sent to you by email. You will need to include the CAS number on your Tier 4 visa application.

We aim to issue your CAS as soon as possible but the longest you’ll wait is 48-hours. If your CAS application is received on a Friday, or if there are any missing documents, you may experience a delay.
