Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS)
You need a CAS number to apply for a visa. The process to get a CAS number is different depending on what type of student you are. Find out what you need to do to get your CAS number.
What is a CAS number and why do I need one?
A Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) is an electronic document that generates a reference number you need to be able to apply for a visa. A CAS number confirms to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) that we wish to sponsor your study in the UK.
