Visa applications

City, University of London retains Highly Trusted Status from UK Border Agency (UKBA), enabling us to sponsor international students to study in the UK.

In order to apply for a Tier 4 visa, you must obtain a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from Cass Business School, City, University of London. CAS statements will be issued by City, University of London.

English proficiency

The UK Border Agency requires proof of English proficiency from all incoming students on a Tier 4 Visa except those who are nationals of a majority English-speaking country or those who have successfully completed an academic qualification, at least equivalent to a UK bachelor's degree, which was taught in a majority English-speaking country*.

Majority English-speaking countries:

  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Australia
  • The Bahamas
  • Barbados
  • Belize
  • Canada
  • Dominica
  • Grenada
  • Guyana
  • Ireland
  • Jamaica
  • New Zealand
  • St Kitts and Nevis
  • St Lucia
  • St Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • United Kingdom
  • United States of America.

*excludes Canada

If you will require a Tier 4 visa and are not a national of a majority English-speaking country or have not successfully completed an academic qualification, at least equivalent to a UK bachelor's degree, which was taught in a majority English-speaking country as defined by the UK Border Agency, you need to have a minimum, well balanced IELTS score of 7.0. We may be able to accept other English tests and qualifications; please contact our Admissions team for more information.

We do not offer nor accept a pre-sessional English class as an alternative to the listed English tests. Any pre-sessional course should be viewed as an aid to living and studying in the UK and not as a way of topping up an IELTS score.

This is in addition to all academic requirements on any offer made by Cass.

You can pay your application fee online and we accept the following cards: MasterCard, Maestro, Solo, Switch, Visa, Visa Delta and Visa Electron.

You will be given a reference number upon payment; please make a note of this and enter it when prompted on the online application form. Please note that we cannot begin to process your application until we have received your application fee.

We operate a rolling admissions programme. However, due to high demand for places from strong candidates across the Cass MBA programmes, we recommend that you submit a full application at least four months in advance of the start of the course.
