There are two types of visa that you can apply for to study in the UK. Learn more about them.
The majority of international students who apply to study with the University of Sunderland will require a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). You will then use this CAS to apply for your Student Visa. Find out what documentation you need to give to us.
The Immigration History Form tells us about any previous study you have undertaken in the UK and if you have ever received a visa refusal from the UK or any other country. Learn more about it.
We will ask you to provide us with evidence that you meet the Home Office English language requirements. Learn more about what forms this might take.
A Visa Preparation Support (VPS) session is an opportunity for you to demonstrate the research that you have carried out into the University of Sunderland. Find out what is involved.
Unless you are a national whereby providing financial evidence is not required by the Home Office, we will want to see that you have enough funds to meet the Student Visa maintenance requirements. Learn more about the evidence the UK Home Office will typically accept.
We will ask you to provide us with a scanned copy of your passport. Learn more about how to do this.
