What if I have a tuition fee to pay?

You can either pay the first instalment by card online or set up a direct debit and pay your tuition fee later in two instalments (first DD payment due mid November).

International students must pay at least 50% of their fee in order to enrol.

If you intend to pay by direct debit online you should have a UK current bank account in your name and transfer funds to that account before the first payment is due.

You can also pay by bank transfer to the University's account or by cheque or by phone. However, you will need to wait for your payment to clear before attempting to enrol on your course. Most transactions clear within 5 working days but more complex international transactions may take up to 10 working days. Browse how to pay fees for details.
