See our Visa Guide 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 in May before your programme begins. The CAS is a unique number generated by the UKBA and is specific to your study at LSE. You will also receive a CAS statement, a précis of the information used by us to make your offer and supplied to UKBA. 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.
