The Home Office has not undertaken any analysis of the reasons for visa refusals arising from unconditional and conditional offers of student places.

An applicant for a visa to come to the UK as a Tier 4 student must hold a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) assigned by their Tier 4 sponsor.

The sponsor assigns the CAS when they have made an unconditional offer of a place on a course of study at their institution.
