Accept your offer

If you haven't already done so, it's time to accept your offer. This firms up your place at UEA.   Accepting your offer signals your intention to come and study with us.

If you are an international student you will need a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) to apply for a student visa. UEA will start to issue CAS letters from June onwards to students with unconditional offers who have paid their deposit.

Once you have accepted your offer you can find out the next steps you can take before you arrive at UEA, such as sending documentation or confirming your accommodation.

It's easy to accept your offer, log-in to the application portal and follow the instructions.

If you have any questions you can talk to our students, staff or arrange to meet one of our international team via the Questions page.
