If you’re currently studying in the UK on a Student (or Tier 4) visa and you apply to Durham to continue your study, you must meet the academic progression requirements and show that:
Academic progression rules only apply if you’re applying for a Student visa in the UK. You will be told if it’s not possible to issue you with a CAS if you don’t meet the criteria above.
If you’re applying to study a course at the same academic level as your previous course, you’ll be asked to confirm that your next course is related to your previous course and ‘represents your genuine career applications’. This will be confirmed on your CAS.
We may still be able to issue you with a CAS but you’ll only be able to apply for a visa outside the UK, as academic progression rules only apply to visa applications submitted in the UK.
