Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS)

If your offer or Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) from Brunel University states that you need an ATAS certificate then you must apply for this as soon as possible.

ATAS certificates currently take 20 working days to process, once you have submitted a complete valid ATAS application. ATAS applications are processed by the UK governments' Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

For further information about the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) and for details on how to apply for an ATAS clearance certificate, please see the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) website (external site).
