So as an international student, you have now applied, you may be waiting to hear back from us regarding your application or you might have already received an offer (conditional or unconditional). There are still things you need to consider before September.

Please take note of the deadlines regarding international applications.

Paying your deposit

After receiving an unconditional offer you will be asked to pay your deposit - please check your emails regularly as you will be sent information about the amount and how this is paid.

Your CAS number and applying for your visa

After paying your deposit we will ask for further information so that we can issue you a CAS number, we will start issuing CAS numbers no more than 3 months in advance of your start date. After receiving this you will be able to apply for your visa.

Receiving your enrolment instructions

Admissions will start to send out enrolment information in mid August, please note that these will only be sent out once you are holding an unconditional offer and you have returned your acceptance of offer form. These will be via email so keep an eye on your inbox. Your enrolment will take place online, and then you will be invited in to the University to attend an ID verification session and induction sessions as part of welcome week.

Book your place at halls

To make sure you have a secured place in halls you need to apply and pay a depost, you can do this by visiting the accommodation pages, but if you need further help you can contact the team at or at +44 01204 90348.
