Dates and deadlines

There are several important dates and deadlines for international students to be aware of. These dates include key stages of the application process through to the appropriate Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) processing and enrolment dates.

As an international student, it's important you read about these strict deadlines to ensure you don't miss out on the opportunity to study your chosen course. These deadlines are particularly important if you require a Tier 4 student visa to ensure you're able to apply for your visa and join your course in time.
