Advice for students applying to CAFRE from EU countries
CAFRE does not currently hold a Learner Sponsor Licence and is therefore unable to accept applicants who require a student visa to study in the UK. CAFRE is currently working towards acquiring the Student Sponsor Licence in the future.
Following the UK exit from the EU, CAFRE can only accept applicants from citizens of the EU (including citizens from Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) who have been granted limited leave to enter or remain (‘pre-settled’ status) or indefinite leave to enter or remain (“settled” status) under the EU Settlement Scheme contained in Appendix EU to the immigration rules.
CAFRE will continue to accept applicants from citizens of the Republic of Ireland under the terms of the Common Travel Area policy agreed between the UK Government and the Government of Ireland.
Michigan State University (MSU) Exchange Programme
To date over 60 Michigan State University students have studied at CAFRE. The students experience life on a smaller campus with the opportunity to ‘learn by doing’ through projects and practical work using the extensive facilities at CAFRE.
