We will write to you around 3 months before your programme starts to ask you to formally request a CAS from us.

Please note that due to the current difficulties surrounding the Covid-19 Pre-sessional English Language Courses in 2020 will now be taught online and will be accessible from overseas.

You will no longer be required to request a CAS for these courses. Instead on successful completion of your pre-sessional course, we will assess you for a single CAS for your main course of study.

Our CAS request deadlines for main cycle CAS will be subject to review.
