Important Information

The start of the academic year is coming up fast and we would like to enrol all new international students as close to the official start of term as possible –3rd October 2016. 

In order to make sure that CAS can be issued with enough time for the visa to be processed, we need to receive deposit payment by the following date, which varies according to the length of time visa processing takes.

To avoid delay in enrolment, we advise all students to use priority/express services where possible.
