Help and advice

Chloe Bridges

NTIC Progression Coordinator

Hi, I'm Chloe and I'm the NTIC Progression Coordinator here at NTU. If you have any questions about progressing to the University please email me and I'll be happy to help.

We've put together a checklist to make your progression to the University as smooth as possible. Start by logging in to the NTU Applicant Portal where you'll find your progression course application.

Progression checklist

When NTIC confirms your details with NTU our Admissions team will send an email to you from This email will confirm that an account has been created for you on the NTU Applicant Portal and it will also give you a username (an email address) and a password for you to log in.

You won’t be able to log on to the portal until you receive this email. On the portal you can:

  • check the status of your NTU progression course application
  • view the conditions of your offer
  • upload documents required to meet the conditions of your offer
  • update your personal information

Important information about your username and password

Your username looks like this:

It is NOT: or your personal email address.

Your password is NOT the password you use to log in to your university account.

If you don’t know your password, have forgotten it, or just want to change it, you can do this by selecting ‘forgotten my password’ on the log in screen.

Please take the time to check that all the details of your progression course application are correct.

Click on ‘my details’ to check your personal details and make any changes if necessary.

Click on ‘my applications’ to check that your chosen progression course is correct, and that the course length is correct (FT = full time; SW = sandwich/course has a work placement option).

Click on ‘view conditions’ to understand what you need to do in order for your ‘conditional offer’ to become ‘place confirmed’.

Check to see if there any extra requirements you'll need to do for the course, for example a portfolio, personal statement or interview.

Please log into the Applicant Portal and upload any non-academic documents, such as copy of your passport photo page.

If one of your conditions is to confirm whether you need a Student visa to study at NTU, then please email confirmation to

When you finish your NTIC course, we will upload your academic documents (transcripts and English language qualification) to the Applicant Portal – you do not need to do this yourself.

We will only be able to issue your CAS when you have met all the conditions of your offer. This includes non-academic conditions, such as uploading your passport copy, so please do this as soon as possible to avoid any delays.

CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies)

We'll send your CAS to your T-number email address when you've met all your conditions (so that on the NTU Applicant Portal, it should say 'place confirmed').

Look out for this important email – you’ll need your CAS to apply for your visa.

Check your CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) carefully.

If there are any mistakes on your CAS please email to get them corrected.

Your Student visa for NTIC is NOT VALID for study at the University, you must apply for a new visa before you start your studies at NTU.

Please note:

  • You should check you meet all of the Student visa requirements before making your visa application, especially the financial requirement. We can help you with this.
  • If your NTIC visa expires before the start of your NTU course; you must apply for a new one to continue studying.
  • Depending on when your NTIC visa expires, you may have to make your visa application from outside the UK. If there is a gap of more than 28 days between your current visa expiry date and your course start date at NTU, you cannot make your visa application in the UK.
  • You must show a visa which is valid for study at NTU during the enrolment period. If you have made your visa application in the UK and have not yet received your new visa, you will need to provide proof that you have made your visa application and keep the University updated on the progress of your application.

At NTU, the International Student Support Service has a lot of experience helping NTIC students get their visas to study at the University.

We can help you with the online visa application form, and we can also check your documents before you submit your application.

Please check your email regularly for updates on the support available from our team during the summer.

Our web pages have lots of information to help you with your visa application, including step by steps guides and checklists. Please contact us by e-mail if you have any questions, or you can call us on +44 (0)115 848 2631. Our office hours are 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Thursday, and 8.30am to 4.30pm Friday.
