1.9

If you are a returning international student seeking a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) Certificate from the University and you have previously failed to pay your tuition fees on time (that is, by the date given on your fees invoice), the University may ask you to pay a proportion of your next year’s tuition fees in advance before a CAS certificate is issued. If you are an international applicant requiring a CAS and you have not paid your tuition fees or any other tuition fee related sums, a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) Certificate will not be issued until such time as this debt is cleared.
