Hi, for all those in the Sept 2012 intake, please post your ATAS application process to help the rest of us.

1. date you applied
2. date received
3. length of processing
4. any other comments on your application
5. course and university

This is so those applicants who have not got their ATAS clearance and are worried about deadlines can have some reference as to how long the processing will take. There have been many complaints about the length of time it takes to process the certificate, and because of this, many students cannot enter the UK in time for their course, and have to either seek out other countries, or defer their applications. So please, any information is much much appreciated

Do you have a scholarship or are you funding your own studies?
What did you put down for financial details if you're funding your own studies??

Quick questions for those that have applied already, what do you do if you have no employment history? There is no check box for that in the application and it doesn't let you move forward unless you fill something in. Also, in the Education History section, do you need to fill in details about your high school? If yes, then where? Thank you.

I have a friend who put down Not Applicable. I however interned with my mother's company for 6 months so I noted that down. No, I don't think high school details need be included as the heading only mentions undergrad/postgrad. However, it would be best to check with your application advisor or education provider as I'm not sure.

Can any tell me, whether ATAS team will contact mentioned referees in application or not? Because my referees didn't receive any links through mail.

Thanks in advance.

As far as I know, and quite a few of my friends have applied, they do not contact the referees.

Yikes...imperial? I've tried sending them many emails informing them of my deadline, but they never replied. Maybe try contacting the university and asking for an extension on the deadline?

2. Still processing

4. Well the ATAS application page asked me about my job experience and since I'm only a high school graduate who never had any job experience I mentioned my job as student.

Hey everyone I just want to ask did you guys receive notification e-mail about the summary of your application after you submitted it? I've submitted mine but I didn't receive any email although my username and pass on the ATAS login site has been removed (which indicates that I've successfully submitted it). I did email those ATAS guys about it but I got no reply.

If you didn't receive an email acknowledging your submission, which comes attached with the summary, it most probably means that your application has not been submitted. This happened to one of my friends. Check your spam box to see if the email ended up there. If not, it is important that you re-apply ASAP in order to get your ATAS in time for visa applications. Of course, the fact that your US and PW was removed kind of confuses me, but thats the best advice I can offer. All the best!

the length of each applications varies from person to person. your lucky if you get it within the 20 working days as specified in the website. mine took nearly three months to come through.

make sure your form is accurate. no initials in any names because then they'll ask you to update it. and when you do. they dont give you any confirmation saying that its updated. so patience is truly a virtue with atas applications.

also if you have no employment history type in no employment in the sections and enter the current date as start date.

also if you're funding your own education then just mention that in the sponsor details.

any other questions, feel free to ask me because i've had some experience going through this process and will help you out as far as i can.
