If you are an international student who has had a break from study for more than 60 days that has resulted in a curtailment of your Tier 4 / Student visa, then you will need to apply for a new visa to enter the UK and resume your studies at King’s.
When should I request a CAS?
We advise you to request a new Confirmation of Studies letter (CAS) approximately 3 months prior to your planned return date by completing a CAS request form; take a look at our article I'm a current student, how do I request a CAS? for guidance. Where relevant, please include the date that you plan to continue with your studies.
Once you have received your CAS, then you can apply for your Student visa; take a look at our article How do I apply for a Student visa? for further guidance.
Important to know:
- You cannot apply for a Student visa more than 6 months before your planned date of returning to full-time study and you will not be able to re-enter the UK more than 1 month in advance.
- You should ensure your new Student Visa/ Tier 4 visa has been granted and is valid, before travelling to the UK.
