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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
