CONFIRMATION OF ACCEPTANCE OF STUDIES (CAS)

A Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) is a unique 16 digit number issued by the University to students who have demonstrated that they are committed to and capable of study at the University. A CAS is required before applying for a Student Visa. Some students may be required to attend an online Pre-CAS interview as part of the CAS application process.

Once you have gone Firm on an Unconditional Offer of a place to study at the University, and you have paid the £2000 Tuition Fee Deposit (where appropriate), you can apply for a CAS using our (CAS) Request Form. You can apply for a CAS up to six months prior to the commencement of your studies.

Online Pre-CAS Interview information

Some students will be invited to attend an online Pre-CAS Interview with the University of Winchester to confirm that they are committed and ready to study at the University in the UK. The purpose of the interview is for both the student and the University to ensure that all aspects of the application to come to study at the University are complete and in order. It is not a test of academic or creative skills as the student will already been given an Unconditional Offer of a place to study with us. This interview is compulsory for those students invited.

The interview will be conducted in English online using Microsoft Teams, so broadband access and a computer/tablet with camera and microphone (not a smartphone) will be necessary. It is not necessary to have an account with MS Teams as one can simply use the browser version of Teams (see below). The interview will be recorded.

You will need to be in a room on your own for the interview, for up to 30 minutes without interruptions. There should be nobody else in the room during the interview.

We will discuss a range of topics focusing on:

  • study at the University and the UK
  • your chosen course of study and career objectives
  • accommodation
  • finance
  • post-study plans

You will also be given the opportunity to ask us questions at the end of the interview should you wish.

You will need the following documents to hand during the interview (you may be requested to send scans of documents prior to your interview):

  • your passport (as submitted in your application) – this should be opened at the photo/ID page
  • a recent bank statement for the account that will be used to support your studies – if the account belongs to both/either of your parents we would also require to see your birth certificate

The interview will be recorded and stored in secure location by the University in such a way that it could be released to authorised parties should that be required.
