  1. You will need to have successfully accepted for a full-time programme at the University of South Wales.
  2. You will have to pay for the payment of deposit

Once these two conditions met, you will receive a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number and you will use this document to apply for your student visa.

Your application should be made at the local visa application centre.

If you need additional guidance regarding visa application, please contact us. You can also get in touch with the British Council’s Kuwait offices or our international advice team.
