Before the University of Hull can issue you with a CAS number, you must meet all of the conditions of your offer. This may include:
English language requirements
Check what evidence you can provide to meet the English language requirements.
A deposit for your tuition fees or evidence of sponsorship
International students undertaking a taught or research Masters or a PhD must pay a tuition deposit fee. It may take 5 working days for your deposit payment to be processed depending on the time of year.
Apart from the required tuition deposit, paying tuition fees to the University in advance is not a requirement of the visa process. If you choose to pay any additional fees to the University in advance, please ensure that your payment is reflected in your CAS statement.
If your studies are funded by a University approved financial sponsor, the deposit requirement will be waived upon receipt of the appropriate financial guarantee evidence.
If you are in receipt of the tuition fee scholarship or if you are our graduate progressing to another course with us, you do not need to pay any deposit.
An Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate (if your offer letter states you need one)
Generally, ATAS applications are processed within a month and are valid for six months. However, this process may take longer during the busy periods, and there is no premium/fast track processing option. It is therefore important to allow plenty of time to obtain the certificate since your CAS will not be generated until the ATAS clearance is received.
An ATAS application includes a statement outlining your area of research/study. This statement must be the same as agreed with your supervisor and held on file at the University of Hull. Please apply for your ATAS as soon as you receive your conditional offer.
