Visa documents

Dear 2017 undergraduate offer holder,

Thank you for confirming that you require a visa to enter the UK to study. To make your Tier 4 General Student visa application, the University of Cambridge must sponsor you and issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). The University’s International Student Team issues you with a CAS once you have met all your conditions. You will find detailed information about the visa application process on their ‘International Students’ website.

 The CAS is a unique number, relevant only to you and to the course you will undertake at Cambridge. The International Student Team obtains the CAS number from the UK Home Office and requires certain details from you to be able to do this, without which your visa application may not be successful. To ensure the International Student Team includes the correct information for you, please undertake the following:

 

1.     Passport

Your CAS must replicate details contained on your passport (i.e. the names that appear on your passport, your passport number, your birth country, and your nationality.) Therefore, to ensure we use the correct information, please upload a copy of your passport photograph page using this form by Monday 24 April 2017.  Even if you submitted this as part of your application, please submit this again via this form.

You must provide a copy of the passport that you will use to enter the UK. If your passport is due to expire and requires renewal, please let Zoë Radford, our Admissions Secretary, know. You must provide a copy of your new passport as soon as possible. If we do not receive this information, your CAS will be incorrect and your visa application may fall for refusal.

2.     Current and previous UK visas

If you already have any current or previous visas for the UK, please provide copies of these. Do not assume that you can start your course on your existing UK visa, unless the International Student Team confirms otherwise. (You do not need to send copies of tourist visas – these do not allow study at Cambridge).

When supplying copies of your visas, please answer the following questions. We require this information because the CAS must refer to any previous study in the UK. Without this information, your CAS will fail.

(a)  Have you ever previously studied in the UK?

(b)  If ‘yes’, state the name of the course and level
 

All applicants requiring a visa must upload this image. Please name your file in the following format: "Surname FirstName Passport", e.g. "Radford Zoe Passport". Your upload will be stored securely. Max upload size: 8MB. File types accepted: .gif, .jpg, .png, .pdf
If you already have any current or previous visas for the UK, please provide copies of these. You do not need to send copies of tourist visas – these do not allow study at Cambridge).
