Confirming that you do not require a CAS

By completing this form you are confirming that you do not require a Confirmation of Acceptance for Study (CAS) from the University of Warwick because you intend to start your studies using a different type of immigration permission that allows study.

All non-UK/ Irish nationals are subject to a 'right to study' check before they can enrol or start the course. The University is required by the UK government to carry out these checks. You will receive further information regarding this requirement, including guidance on what evidence you must upload, when you complete online enrolment.

However, we would like to help you check in advance that the immigration permission you hold permits study in the UK.

We have dedicated immigration information available on our Student Immigration website. Please visit the web pages and when you are confident that you do already hold immigration permission which allows study in the UK please return to upload a scan of your evidence of correct immigration permission to study in the UK (passport/relevant visa/pre-settled or settled status decision letter or email) on this page.

Please note that it is not possible to study at Warwick using:
1. A  ‘Graduate’ Visa/’Graduate Route’ Visa
2. A ‘High Potential Individual Visa’
3. A ‘Standard Visit Visa’ (unless your course is less than 6 months long)
4. A ‘Student Visa’ sponsored by another UK University or for another course

If you hold any of the above types of immigration permission you will be prevented from enrolling on your course, as to do so would be a breach of your visa conditions. You will not be allowed to start your course until you have obtained suitable immigration permission, unless your previous visa was a student visa, in which case it may be possible to start your course after submitting a Warwick Student Visa application.

You will be expected to complete online enrolment and attend an in-person immigration event with your original passport and immigration permission before you are fully enrolled on your course. We would expect this to be completed by your course start date. If you experience a delay in your ability to complete enrolment, please get in touch with to enquire about your 'latest start date', which is the last day you must complete enrolment and start engaging with your studies. More information relating to enrolment can be found at

(This should be the course you are intending to join at Warwick.)
