To all new students starting in September 2013:
You should make every effort to be here by 18 September 2013. However, in order to ensure your place on the course, you need to be attending the University and be enrolled by no later than 30 September 2013.
If you are starting your studies this September we strongly recommend you read the information on the
UK Border Agency website. Apply for your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from the International Office and apply for your visa in good time. You can apply for a visa up to 3 months before your date of travel to the UK.
For further information on how to apply see our Visa & Immigration pages.
