ATAS Certificates for UK Visa applications

In today’s video, we’re going to talk about ATAS Certificates – otherwise known as Academic Technology Approval Scheme Certificates.

The scheme was introduced to ensure that visa applicants do not gain access to sensitive knowledge or technology that could be used for harmful purposes.

If you intend to work or complete a postgraduate course in a science, engineering, or technology field in the UK, you may need to apply for an ATAS certificate.
