I am a postgraduate applicant whose offer is conditional on ATAS. How do I apply for ATAS clearance?

Guidance on applying for ATAS clearance.

All offer holders that need ATAS clearance will receive an email from our Postgraduate Admissions Team, who are also on hand should you need any other form of postgraduate help. The email we send you will provide the full module list or research statement that you’ll need to include when you apply for ATAS. You can find out more information about ATAS certificates and how to apply here.  


ATAS applications are made online to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The FCO should provide you with a decision within 30 working days from receipt of your application.
