Tuition Fee Payment Options

If you are not eligible for a Tuition Fee Loan or choose to finance your studies privately then there are several payment options available to you:

  • You can pay your full tuition fees online at registration. Alternatively, you can choose to pay in 6 instalments within the academic year or in 3 instalments if you are only studying one semester, in line with the University’s instalment plan. This option is only by a recurring credit/debit card payment from a UK bank account.
  • Part-time students who do not have a Tuition Fee Loan in place will be required to settle their tuition fees within 30 days from date of invoice.
  • Please note that the above options are available to UK students or pre-2021 entry, settled or pre-settled status EU students only. International students are required to pay 50% of their fees before enrolment in accordance with UK Border Agency regulations. The remaining 50% is then due before the start of your second semester.

Tuition Fee Payment by Instalments

The tuition fee instalment plan is summarised in the table below:  

Course start month 1st
September 1st October 1st November 1st December 1st January 1st February 1st March
January 1st February 1st March 1st April 1st May 1st June 1st July

Students who are in receipt of a Postgraduate Loan can pay in 3 instalments in line with their loan payment dates (these are dependent on course start dates).
