In the academic year 2008-2009, no Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies were used by further education colleges, as visa letters were issued by Tier 4 sponsors at that time.

In the academic year 2015-2016, 404 further education colleges have assigned Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies since 1 September 2015.
