Combined Offer

Following your successful applications to study with us at the University of Reading on both our pre-sessional English course and your main programme of study, we are delighted to provide you with a way of combining these two courses and being issued with a single CAS.

Benefits of a Combined Offer

By combining your two courses, you will only need to make one visa application to cover the full duration of your studies with us, and you will be able to automatically progress onto your main programme once you have completed the pre-sessional English course.


To be eligible for a combined offer, you must meet all of the other conditions for entry to your main programme, as stated in your offer email, except for the English Language condition, and paid the deposits for your main programme (if required) and for the pre-sessional programme.

Next Steps

If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please let us know by replying to your offer email, confirming that you wish to combine your two offers.

You will need to pay a £500 non-refundable deposit to secure your place for the pre-sessional course and pay a separate deposit, if required, for your main course. Further details can be found in your offer email.

Once you have paid the deposit and have met all other conditions of your offer we will send you a single CAS number to cover both the pre-sessional English course and your main programme.

If you have any questions about what combining your offer will mean for you, please do get in touch by replying to your offer email.
