See our visa pages for full details.
If you are a non-EU/EEA national and require a visa to gain entry to the UK we will send you a Confirmation of Acceptance of Study (CAS) by email before your programme begins. The CAS is a unique number generated by the UKVI and is specific to your study at LSE. You will also receive a CAS statement, which is a summary of the information used by us to make your offer and supplied to UKVI. You can apply for your visa up to three months before your course begins.
Your CAS will only be issued once your offer is unconditional, you have accepted the offer and you have submitted the financial undertaking form. We start to send CASs from May onwards.
