Step 5: Complete a CAS Request Form

To come to the UK to study at MMU, you will need a visa unless:

  • you are a British citizen
  • you are a citizen of an European Economic Area (EEA) member state or Switzerland
  • you have a visa to stay in the UK for another purpose that allows you study, such as a dependant visa where you are the husband/wife/partner/child of someone in the UK.

If you do not fall into one of the categories above, you will need to apply for a Tier 4 (General) visa, so that you can start your studies at MMU.

Before you can apply for permission to enter the UK under Tier 4 (General), MMU must assign a CAS to you.  This confirms that you have an unconditional offer from a licensed Tier 4 sponsor.

Getting your CAS

Before you start your application please read the CAS Policy for students joining a new course of study for information on who can and cannot be issued with a CAS.

In order for International admissions to be able to issue you with a CAS, you must submit a CAS Request Form and all supporting evidence listed on the form.  There are two versions of the CAS Request Form, please complete and submit the relevant form for you:

*Who is a Low Risk National? 

The list of countries whose nationals are considered Low Risk as defined by the Home Office are confirmed in Appendix H of the Immigration Rules.  Students who are nationals of countries considered low risk do not have to submit supporting evidence to MMU in order to be issued with a CAS, and are not required to include this information in their immigration application.  However this information can be requested after your application has been submitted so please make sure it is available.

Remember you will also be required to submit proof that you meet Home Office’s maintenance requirements - if you are unsure of how much money you need to show, please refer to our help sheet: Money Required for CAS/Home Office. If you are unable to produce the necessary evidence, please contact the Immigration and Welfare Team to discuss your case.

What will my CAS look like?

When the International Admissions team have received your CAS number from the Home Office, they will produce a CAS Statement, which provides all the information you need to complete the visa application form. 

When you receive your CAS statement, please check the information very carefully to ensure that the contents are correct.  If there any errors, you should email internationalapplication@mmu.ac.uk and the International Admissions team will make any necessary amendments to the CAS via the Home Office’s systems.  You will then be sent a screen print to confirm the amendments have been made.  You do not need to submit the CAS Statement with your application.  

Step 6: Apply for Visa

If you are unable to produce the necessary evidence, please contact the Immigration and Welfare Team to discuss your case.

What will my CAS look like?

When the International Admissions team have received your CAS number from the Home Office, they will produce a CAS Statement, which provides all the information you need to complete the visa application form. 

When you receive your CAS statement, please check the information very carefully to ensure that the contents are correct.  If there any errors, you should email internationalapplication@mmu.ac.uk and the International Admissions team will make any necessary amendments to the CAS via the Home Office’s systems.  You will then be sent a screen print to confirm the amendments have been made.  You do not need to submit the CAS Statement with your application.  

Step 6: Apply for VISA

In order to apply for a student visa you will need to have received a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance to Study) number to insert on your Tier 4 application form.
