Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS)

International students who want to study for a postgraduate research degree in the United Kingdom may need to apply for an ATAS certificate from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. This will have been indicated on your offer letter. For further guidance see the ATAS web pages.

Please note - If ATAS is required the certificate must be produced before a CAS be raised 

Visas Under the Points Based System - Tier 4: General Student

All international students receive a standard visa letter for adult students issued by the University as a licensed sponsor. Your CAS on your visa letter is valid for visa applications for six months from the date of issue.

Points are awarded for having a valid Visa Letter issued by a licensed sponsor which is worth 30 points. In addition 10 points are given for fulfilling the Maintenance (Funds) requirement. Entry Clearance Officers will only award points where you have indicated that you wish to claim them, and for which you have supplied the required supporting evidence.

To fulfil the Maintenance (Funds) requirement you will have to demonstrate that you have funds to support yourself and any dependants. The maintenance amount for the main applicant is calculated at £800 per month for study outside the Inner London Boroughs. On a course of more than 9 months you will be required to show that you have the first year of the tuition fees plus £7200. These amounts must be held in your personal bank account for a minimum period of 28 days. The end of that 28 day period must not be more than one month before the date of your application, for which you must show bank statements/other evidence.

For further guidance please consult the visa web site of the Home Office/United Kingdom Border Agency.

The University's record keeping and reporting duties

As your approved education provider the University is required to keep a copy of your passport, identity card for foreign nationals or United Kingdom immigration status document. You should keep the original.

  • If you miss 10 expected contacts without the University's permission;
  • If the University stops being your immigration sponsor;
  • If there are any significant changes in your circumstances;
