myHub and tracking your application
It is important that you access and log in to myHub regularly for information and communication about your application.
myHub is BU's online portal for anyone who has applied to the university. This is where all the details about your application are kept and updated, so you can track the progress of your application as well as communicate with our International Admissions Team.
The login details to your myHub account are sent to you via email soon after your application has been received. If you cannot remember your login details, contact our IT Service Desk on +44 (0)1202 965515 or via the IT Services website. You will need to provide your 7-digit student ID which can be found in your offer letter.

Refer to your offer letter and check your myHub account to find a list of your offer conditions and outstanding actions. Once you meet the offer conditions, please upload your relevant document directly to your myHub account.

Accepting your offer
All offer holders:
To accept your offer and secure your place on the course, you must firmly accept your offer on UCAS or log in to your account on myHub if you directly applied to BU.
International offer holders:
The deadline to accept your offer will depend on when you received all the decisions from the universities you applied for. Most students will fall into one of the categories below:
- If you receive all your universities decisions by 16 May 2024, you must reply to any offers by 6 June 2024, or they'll be declined
- If you receive all your universities decisions by 17 July 2024, you must reply to any offers by 24 July 2024, or they’ll be declined
This may still be subject to change, so please check for more information on key dates by visting the UCAS website.
From Tuesday 28 November 2023, all applicants whose offer status is Conditional Firm (CF) or Unconditional Firm (UF) will be invited to login to the accommodation portal to register their interest in BU accommodation (Stage 1).
From Tuesday 2 April 2024, so long as you have completed Stage 1 and meet the terms of the accommodation guarantee, you'll be able to complete Stage 2, where you choose and book your room for September 2024. Visit this page for more information.
Uploading all the requested documents to myHub
After you accept your offer, the next step is making sure you clear all the pending actions on your account in myHub. This could be any or all of the following:
- A legible copy of a valid passport
- Copy of your final certificate (original and/or translation)
- Copy of your final transcripts (original and/or translation)
- Copy of IELTS certificate or alternative recognised English language qualification
- Academic and/or professional references
- Personal statement
- Confirmation of any previous UK study
- Copy of any previous UK visas
A list of pending actions can be seen in your offer letter.
CAS and Student visa application
The Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) is a document you will need in order to apply for your Student visa. This is issued by the university to the applicant.
We typically start issuing your CAS from six months prior to your course and will do so from 01 May 2024.
To ensure you obtain your CAS in time for your visa application, your offer must be Unconditional and firmly accepted by you. You must also clear all pending actions on your account in myHub.
International students who successfully complete their undergraduate or postgraduate degree can apply to stay for up to 2 years after graduation and those who have undertaken a PhD can stay up to 3 years. The UK's Graduate Visa welcomes international students to apply to stay in the UK and work, or look for work, after they graduate.
