The International Student Advisory Service is part of Student Based Services. We provide advice and guidance on visas and other immigration matters. We issue the confirmation of acceptance to study (CAS) that international students need for their visa. We operate a drop-in at the Base for quick questions, and we are happy to arrange a longer appointment with one of our advisers for more complex queries.
