*Where possible, we’ll aim to provide a joint Confirmation of Acceptance (CAS) to cover your pre-sessional course and your degree course. Please see the tables above to see if your pre-sessional course may be eligible for a single CAS.

Unfortunately, if you do not successfully complete the pre-sessional course, we may be unable to continue sponsorship for your main award.
