Hi, if you're applying to BCU as an international student, then we know you may have questions related to your CAS, VISA, moving to the UK or just what it's like as an international student at BCU.
Some quick answers to your frequently asked questions are..
Why haven't I received my CAS? We are currently experiencing extremely high volumes of applications for students who want to join us this next intake. Decisions on new applications are currently taking between 7-10 working days. Please do not chase us for decisions but refer to your agent portal for updates. Payments take between 3-10 working days to be accredited to student accounts. Once the payment has been confirmed, CAS takes between 3-5 working days. If the financial documents have not been provided, then these will be requested.
How do I upload the documents I've been asked for? Birmingham City University will ask you to upload information to support your application. Once you have logged in to your mySRS BCU Applicant Portal you will be presented with your actions and help on how to do this. We have some useful information to help you use MySRS: https://mysrs.bcu.ac.uk/urd/sits.urd/run/siw_lgn
What type of VISA do I need? You will be expected to apply as an adult student under the Student Visa if you are coming to the UK for your post-16 education.
Can I get an update on my application? Thank you for your application to BCU. We aim to process all applications as quickly as possible. If you have applied using UCAS we will respond to your application within the published UCAS decision deadlines. If the university requires any further information or for you attend an interview, audition or portfolio review in support of your application we will send you an email to the email address listed in your application with further details. You can also check for outstanding actions via your mySRS portal.
