CAS Shield - a step by step guide for students

Once you are eligible to begin your CAS application, you will be sent an email link to the Enroly CAS Shield system. The online system will guide you through your application process and show you where to upload all documents relating to your CAS request. It can take some time to complete all the steps and for your documents to be verified, so we recommend you begin the process as soon as possible.

Important note: we are unable to accept documents emailed to us – it is your responsibility to ensure all the required information is uploaded to CAS Shield, even if you have already sent it to us.

What do I need to do? 

Step 1: Login to CAS Shield from the email to your personal email.

Step 2: Complete your information check and upload the following documents:

  • A colour scan of your passport (we would advise that you ensure your passport is valid for the duration of your course. (If you are going to renew your passport, do this before you begin your CAS application).
  • Your academic transcripts colour scan copy.
  • Evidence of your English language ability, eg IELTS certificate (which is no more than 2 years old).
  • Evidence of your tuition fee deposit payment (amount as specified in your offer letter; the deposit will be offset against your tuition fees).
  • ATAS certificate (if required for your course).

Step 3: Complete your financial check showing you have sufficient funding for your studies and upload any required documents.

Step 4: You may need to undertake a pre-CAS recorded credibility interview where we will ask you about your decision to study with us.

Step 5: When all of the relevant information has been verified along with a successful credibility interview (if required), we will issue a CAS. Your CAS letter will be emailed to your personal email address and contains the information you need to include with your online visa application. If any information is incorrect or your CAS, contact the International Admissions team immediately by emailing International Admissions.
