Visa information for students from Malaysia
All Malaysian nationals who wish to study in the UK will need to apply for a study visa before they are eligible to enter the UK and begin their programme of study.
You can receive visa counselling from any of the two official representatives of the University of Sheffield in Malaysia. The counsellors will advise on all the necessary paperwork and documentation you will need in order to apply for your visa.
Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number
Once you have accepted and met the conditions of your offer of a study place, we will contact you to issue you a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number. This replaces the previous system using Visa Letters. You will need to use this CAS number in your application for a study visa to come to Sheffield.
The British High Commission in Malaysia website has a full list of the immigration requirements to be met by Malaysian nationals who wish to study in the UK.
Advice on Immigration
Our Student Services provide detailed information on visas and immigration before you begin your course.
Extending your visa
The University's International Student Services team and the Union of Students' Advice Centre can offer information and advice, to you and any dependants, on extending your visa once you are in the UK.
