Cass Master’s Application Guide
Checklist of supporting documents
Only online applications are accepted and the candidates must know that there is no application fee for any of the MSc programmes. Find below the document checklist.
Please note we will require at least your transcript, personal statement, and CV to make a decision on your application.
You may only submit one application. However, you may apply for up to three courses, in order of preference, in a single application. You will have the opportunity to select your second and third choices when applying. Please note that you may only be considered for three courses per academic year.
Please do not submit more than one application as it will be automatically withdrawn.
Once a your application is received, it is reviewed by an Admissions Panel, who consider applications on a case-by-case basis, and take a holistic approach, considering academic background, work experience, and any other relevant credentials included with an application, before making a formal decision. We aim to return a decision on an application as soon as possible, normally within 4-6 weeks from receiving a complete application.
Please note that we cannot comment on individual eligibility before you apply, and we can only process your application once it is fully complete, with all requested information received
We have no set deadlines. We operate on a rolling admissions basis and close the courses when they are full. Some courses close as early as the beginning of May so early application is recommended. Imminent course closures will be notified on the website.
Because of the length of time required to apply for a student visa we will be unable to accept applications from overseas students requiring a student visa after mid-July 2021. If you apply after this date, or you do not submit all your supporting documents in time, your application may be deferred until the next academic year. We cannot guarantee a decision can be made in time to secure your visa. If you wish to discuss your individual circumstances please contact your Admissions Officer.
For a successful application to receive an unconditional status, all documents must be verified, so an original or certified copy of the degree transcript must be uploaded to the application form, or emailed to the relevant Admissions Officer upon request.
If you have applied to Cass previously and wish to reuse application materials, please contact your Admissions Officer with your reference number before submitting an application.
If you have been offered a place on an MSc programme you will be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure your place. This deposit must be paid before the deadline given on your offer letter. Your offer acceptance will only be finalised once the deposit payment has been received.
The deposit for all full-time MSc programmes is £2,000. The deposit for all part-time programmes is £1,000. The deposit amount will be deducted from the first instalment of your tuition fees.
Please pay your deposit through the City, University of London online payment system, accessible via the Response Form link in your offer.
Students Visa application for international students
International students, including students from the European Economic Area / Switzerland who are not eligible for the EU Settlement Scheme, coming to study in the UK will need to apply for a Student visa which will allow them to study in the UK.
Please note that the final date for receiving MSc applications from overseas students requiring a Student visa is mid-July.
This is to ensure you have enough time to apply for and receive your visa before the start of the course on campus in London. After this date we recommend you contact the relevant Admissions Officer for further guidance.
Any international students requiring a Student visa who already hold a conditional offer should provide all their documentation to upgrade their offer by 1st August at the latest. If you have any queries about what documentation you need to provide, please contact your Admissions Officer.
Please ensure you read our Student visa guidance carefully to ensure that your visa application process goes smoothly. You should take particular care to ensure that you understand the financial requirements. City, University of London has a team of specialist international student advisers who can help with any questions you may have before and during your visa application process.
Please note: You will have to make a new Student visa application sponsored by City, University of London before you will be able to complete your registration and start studying with us towards your MSc degree on campus in London. If you have undertaken any previous study in the UK as a Student Route visa student of which you have not previously informed us, this may affect your eligibility for a Student visa and you should contact us immediately with further information.
The UK government regularly releases updated Student Visa Guidance. If a change is made that will impact on your Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS), which is issued by the University and is required to apply for a Student visa, or visa application, you will be contacted by the University with further information about your next steps.
