When to Apply When to Apply

The following requirements will help you know when to apply:

  • The earliest you can apply is 3 months before the start of your course or your visa expiring
  • Must have a new CAS statement to apply
  • Before your visa expires (if applying in the UK)
  • Before the deadline if transferring to UEA or are starting a new course (see below)
  • Must be able to meet all the requirements
    • Have the required money in your bank account for at least 28 days

Applying in the UK and transferring from another UK institution

If you have finished a course at another UK institution or are transferring to start studying at UEA, you must apply for your visa before you can start your course.

If you are planning to start a new course, but will not receive your qualification award before starting your new course, you will have to get a formal written confirmation letter from your previous institution (including UEA) in order to get a new CAS statement for your next course. If you do not successfully get your previous qualification award (including being required to do a reassessment), you will be have to stop studying and your visa will be cancelled by the Home Office.
