I would like to know if there is any international student heading to UCL who are still waiting to receive the CAS number, because that is my case.
The Admissions Office does´t reply my emails or answer the phone. Someone told me that they are ignoring the phone due to the vast amount of work. So I called another number but the lady refused to put me in contact with the Admissions Office and said that I need to wait, they might send me something by mail in the next 10 days, but the problem is that I live in South America and all the letters I got from UCL took almost one moth to arrive here.
I asked a friend who is arlready in London to go there and talk to the Admissions and the guy said that they havent yet issued any CAS number, which is not true because I talked to a few international studenst and by now they all have their CAS numbers. The guy also said that they will let me now my MAIL (!) asap.
They seem to be very to be very desorganized and insensitive I might miss classes due to their delay.
I dont know what to do now...
Hey Judy Law,
They've started to send the CAS number a couple a weeks ago, because you can only apply for a visa 3 months before the date you have to start the class, not before. It's probably why you haven't received your CAS number yet. I think they will send your CAS by email (not mail), as they did with mine (I'm also a South American). So it's probably a matter of days now. Good luck!
PS: When you guys are planning to arrive in London?
