St George's

Visa Requirements

Every pupil who is a non UK/EU passport holder must hold a tier 4 visa to study in the UK.  St George’s is rated as a Highly Trusted Sponsor by the Home Office and is authorised to issue confirmation of acceptance of studies (CAS) numbers to enable pupils to obtain an educational visa.

Following acceptance of a place and payment of the deposit, parents are required to pay at least the first term’s fees in full before a CAS can be issued.  The amount is detailed on the CAS application.  They are also required to show the British High Commission that they have a whole year’s fees in their bank account for 28 days.  Many parents therefore choose for ease to pay a year in advance.  

The school admissions department will then issue a CAS which must be taken, with the offer letter, to the visa office in your home country along with any other supporting documents up to three months before the period of study.
