When is the best time to apply for a UK study visa?

How can I get the CAS letter?

The best time to apply for the student visa is at least three months before the starting date of the course you have enrolled in. The issuance of a visa is usually done within 3 weeks.

Once you accept the offer letter from the university you have decided to enroll in and pay the deposit required to secure your seat, the university will issue the CAS to you. The CAS will be sent on the email ID which you gave while submitting your application to the university.

Can students work during their studies in the UK?

Another thing about the CAS. Can it be issued at a later date if I can’t arrive on time for the course start due to the pandemic?
