  • The time it takes for an admissions officer to review documents varies depending on the time of year and the type of document uploaded but you should normally see an update to your 'To do' list within 5 working days.

Pay a deposit (if required)

Some programmes require students to pay a depost to secure their offer.

Your offer letter will state if you are required to pay a deposit, how much is required and the deadline for paying.

Obtain your CAS and apply for a visa (international applicants only)

If you are an international applicant then you will require a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) letter in order to apply for a student visa.

The CAS is an online document issued by the University. We will issue your CAS once you have accepted an unconditional offer and approximately four months prior to the start of your course.

Once you have received your CAS, you will be able to apply for a student visa.

Students are required to register online before the start of their programme using MyCampus – the University’s student information system.

The University Registry will send you full details on how to log in to MyCampus and register in advance of your programme start date by email.
