Request your CAS

  • Once you have received an unconditional offer that you have accepted, and you are within 3-4 months of the start of your course you will receive an email to confirm the personal details that the University holds about you. This is likely to be from mid-May 2020 for students requiring a CAS for Pre-sessional English language courses and the end of June 2020 for students starting at Warwick in September/October 2020. If you have not yet accepted your unconditional offer, please do so as soon as possible: Respond to your offer.
  • Once you confirm your details are correct, you will be directed through to the CAS request form.
  • Please complete the form as fully as possible as the University will use this form to assess your eligibility for Tier 4 sponsorship.
  • Typically, where no further information is required, these are usually processed within 10 working days of receipt of the request form.
  • If an applicant has received an offer for their main Postgraduate course, it may be possible to issue a joint/combined CAS that covers both Pre-sessional English and main course.
  • The Postgraduate Admissions Service will contact applicants by email before the University starts to issue CAS to those students starting the Pre-sessional English course.
  • Please visit the Pre-sessional English language CAS calculator to assess your eligibility.
  • If you have renewed your passport since receiving your CAS, you do not need a new CAS. Please send a scan of the new passport to and we will add a sponsor note confirming this change. The UKVI allow some amendments to the information on your CAS as long as you have not submited your visa application. Please contact the PG Visa Team if you have any questions regarding this.
  • If there is a mistake on your CAS please contact as soon as possible. We can then assess whether or not you require a new CAS. In most cases we can add a sponsor note to your CAS correcting the mistake. The UKVI allow amendments to the information on your CAS as long as your visa application is not in the advanced stages and has “USED” status.
  • If you have made a tuition fee payment you do not require a new CAS.
  • The Student Finance team can update this information on your CAS once the payment has reached the University of Warwick accounts.
  • Please contact Student Finance for further information.
  • For further advice and guidance on making a Tier 4 application please visit the ​ Warwick Immigration Service where you will find lots of useful information.
  • If you have been awarded a scholarship and this does not appear on your CAS, please contact Student Finance as soon as possible.
    • It may be that your department has not informed admissions or student finance regarding your award. We are able to add University of Warwick scholarships and awards to your CAS, however external scholarships should be evidenced with official documentation and will not be included on your CAS.
