Academic Technology Approval Scheme

On 1 November 2007 the Government introduced the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) which applies to international students (non-UK/EU/EEA) and replaced the Voluntary Vetting Scheme which was applicable to some science, engineering and technology disciplines at postgraduate level. The scheme also applies to enhanced undergraduate programmes.
For further information and details of how to apply please visit the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website.
Information and advice can also be obtained by contacting the University’s International Admissions Team at or via their website HERE.
