Tuberculosis (TB) Screening

Depending on which country you are resident in, you may need to undergo TB Screening before you can apply for your visa.

Pre-entry TB screening is compulsory for Tier 4 students who are coming to study at AUB from a country where TB is common.

You can find a full list of countries that require TB screening along with links to UKVI approved test centres in those countries on the website.

You will not need to be screened if you have previously lived in a country where TB screening is not required and you have been away from that country for less than 6 months.

If you are unsure of whether you will need to undergo TB Screening, please contact the International Student Adviser by emailing If you do not undergo screening but are required to, your visa will be refused and we may not issue you with a new CAS.

Please refer to the UKVI’s TB screening for the UK guide, for more information about the screening process.
