    Hi,I'm from India and am planning to do the MRes in Communications this Sept. I got my offer letter in March. However I'm having trouble getting my CAS number for the tier 4 visa from the college. They don't seem to respond. Is anyone having similar issues?
    Hi, lots of people are having the same problem as you! The Registry department is VERY behind on their work. I am one of the lucky few that got my CAS (after repeated emailing, and getting my department administrator involved, since I am traveling prior to arrival in the UK and needed my passport ASAP). A member recently posted that he visited the RCA in person and made a fuss, and learned that they are processing CAS numbers for students beginning in September before the ones starting in October, which is good news for you, but also that they were missing some of his documents and didn't even tell him. My recommendation is to contact the Communications department (whoever you were in contact with about your application, interview etc) and see if they can help.

    Thank you so much!!!! I've just been hoping that someone would respond and I'd get some idea of what's happening. And thank you for the suggestion - I'm going to try writing to my department administrator.
