UKBA urges students to submit visa applications

Students are strongly advised to put in an early application! They should  read the information on the UK Border Agency website (, apply for their Confir­mation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from their chosen place of study and apply for their visa in good time. Students can apply for a visa up to three months in advance of their intend­ed date of travel to the UK. The busy student season coin­cides with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games so students should be prepared and apply early!

We encourage agents to visit the UKCISA  website to find out about changes to immigration rules that went live on the 6th of April 2012.
