Offer stage

  • once we receive your application, it will be scrutinized as per the criteria
  • if your application is considered, we will make you a conditional offer if you have not yet achieved the final results for the most current exams
  • once you have successfully passed your examination, send us a copy of the examination grades
  • we will then send you an unconditional offer letter
  • we will also send you details about accomodation arrangements


Once you have accepted the conditional offer, you will be asked to make the full payment of fees for one year to secure a place on the course. Details of payment method will be sent to you.

Confirmation of acceptance

  • Once the payment has been received we will then generate a unique Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) reference number and send it you.
  • A CAS is valid for six months from the date when it is assigned so you need to use it within this period to apply for permission to stay under Tier 4; if not, it will automatically become invalid.
  • We advise you to apply for the student visa as soon as possible.
  • At this stage also inform us regarding your accommodation arrangements with us.

Applying for a visa

  • You will use this reference number for applying for a visa at your nearest British High Commission / Embassy.
  • You need to inform us as soon as you get your visa.
