When do I get a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number?

The Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies or CAS number is issued directly via Admissions for students who are attending Birmingham for more than 6 months. If you are applying for entry in September, the CAS numbers are usually issued from mid-July but dependent on the number of applications received and other circumstances such as COVID-19, they can be issued much later. Mid-June is when visa applications can begin as you can only apply for a visa in the 3 months prior to your study start date and not before.
