Student Route visa Booklet

This guide explains your responsibilities as a student sponsored by the University of Birmingham under the Student Route visa and provides information on protecting your immigration status in the UK.  If you have been assigned a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) and use it to apply for a visa and you are granted a visa, it will be a Student Route visa.

It is important that you understand and comply with the responsibilities of your student visa and co-operate with the University in fulfilling our shared duties. Any breach could have serious implications to your studies and continued stay in the UK.

  • University Sponsor Duties
