Integrated CAS access route

My ONCAMPUS Course is ‘with Integrated CAS’ – what does it mean?

This programme is set at RQF level 6 (UFP and IY1) or RQF level 7 (MFP) and your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) will be issued by Aston University to cover the full duration of your Degree. You will still be required to meet all the progression requirements after your ONCAMPUS programme to be admitted onto subsequent year(s) of the Degree. On successful completion of your ONCAMPUS programme and for progression onto subsequent years of the Degree programme, you will not need to re-apply for a Visa.
