Writtle University College and ARU have merged. Writtle’s full range of college, degree, postgraduate and short courses will still be delivered on the Writtle campus. See our guide to finding Writtle information on this site.

Important dates and deadlines

Here you can find our application and payment deadlines for May and September 2024 intakes.

We set deadlines for key points in your application to ensure we support you in getting your visa in time for the start of your course.

Please note that due to high volumes of applications, some courses may close before the advertised deadline.

Some courses may have different dates for Induction. Please refer to your registration email and timetable


We don’t have specific application or deposit deadlines, but we do have a CAS issuing deadline, beyond which we cannot issue more CAS due to visa processing timelines.

We anticipate the last day for CAS issuing for our May intake is 19 April and for our September intake 16 August 2024.

Please note: these deadlines are for general guidance. There may be some country-specific variations due to visa processing times, which can be affected by demand, and conditions and requirements specific to each country. Please check this page for the latest updates closer to your chosen intake start date.
