Visa application
Students who need a Tier 4 Student visa need to apply for CAS from us before submitting the visa application. To obtain CAS, students need to provide the followings:
A deposit payment of £1,000 is required to secure your place at the PHBS UK. The funds must be paid and received by the University before we can begin the CAS process. The amount can contribute towards the tuition fee or be refunded after the successful enrolment if you receive full scholarship. More Information on payment methods and options are also included in the Finance information email. 
International students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) must confirm whether they require a visa to enter the UK. If so, you will need to make a Tier 4 Student Visa application. More information on the Tier 4 student visa can be found here:
Despite the deposit, you will be required to provide a list of documents in order for your CAS to be issued, including Academic documents, previous UK visa history, evidence of English Language proficiency as well as bank statement to show you have sufficient fund to cover the tuition fee and the living cost. Once you have received your CAS and checked to make sure all the information is correct, you need to submit your application using the UKVI website:
Please leave this blank when you fill your visa application form. Your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) have to be collected from one of the local post offices within 10 days of the arrival in the UK.
Applying for your Visa
International students will need to pay an immigration health surcharge as part of your visa application, so that you are able to access NHS services whilst in the UK. The cost of the surcharge will be £300 per year.
Please visit the website at to see if you will need a screening as part of your visa application.
If your visa application is successful, you will receive a temporary 30 day visa, during which you must arrive in the UK. If you attempt to enter the UK outside of these dates, you will be refused entry. Once you have arrived in the UK you will be required to collect your BRP within 10 days.
If your visa application is unsuccessful, you need to contact the Student Support immediately with a copy of the refusal letter. We will then let you know the options available to you based on the reasons for the refusal.
At the university
You should have received accommodation information in the relevant email.
Once you have accepted your offer, you will find that PHBS UK will give you every assistance in making the transition to living and studying with us in the UK. We will provide you with further induction week details towards the end of August.
Every student is required to complete the University’s enrolment process. If you are studying on a Tier 4 visa this must be completed by the latest start date as stated on your CAS. If you do not complete this you will be reported for non-enrolment and your visa will be withdrawn.
