Visa requirements

You'll need prior entry clearance (a visa) if you're coming from Nigeria to study in the UK.

Contact the British High Commission to apply for your visa as soon as you've been accepted by the University. You'll need a CAS form (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies), and to show that you have enough money to fund your education and living expenses in the UK. We'll send more detailed information about visa application if you're successful in securing a place with us.
