BPP University Tier 4 Visa
Visas and immigration
If you are a non-EU/EEA National you will need a visa that allows you to study in the UK. Most students will apply for a General Student Visa (TIER 4 visa under the Points Based System – PBS) to study in the UK.
Under the PBS, you must be sponsored by an institution such as BPP University, which is registered with the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) as a Tier 4 sponsor.
There are other visa types (for example: Dependent visa, Post Study Work Visa), which will allow you to study in the UK. If you are already in the UK and hold a visa, the international office at BPP University will advise you if your status will allow you to study with us or if you have to apply for a TIER 4 visa.
For information on visas, how to apply, guidance notes and application forms, please visit the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) website
Applying for CAS
Anyone who applies for a TIER 4 visa to study in the UK must include with their visa application a unique Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number, linking them to the institution where they intend to study.
If you are a non-EU/EEA national and will be studying with us full time, BPP University will issue you with a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) in order to enable you to apply for a Tier 4 General Student Visa. You will only be issued with a CAS number once you have accepted an offer of a place and paid a deposit of approximately 60% of the programme fees.
