When do I pay my fees?

Information for the following postgraduate and research students:

UK and EU students

You are required to pay your fees:

  • in full at enrolment or in full on receipt of invoice; or
  • in line with the postgraduate loan instalment dates. In order to pay in line with the three postgraduate loan disbursement dates you will need to have provided a copy of your postgraduate loan entitlement confirmation to sponsorletters@kingston.ac.uk (please include your student ID number in the subject line). Note that failure to make these payments on time can result in the full invoice balance being due immediately and could lead to a disruption in your course; or
  • by Direct Debit instalment – in line with the University's instalment plan – this option is only available by direct debit, drawn on a UK bank account on the dates below, according to enrolment.

Remember: The direct debit payment request is submitted to your bank two days prior to the payment date so please ensure adequate funds are in your account as we cannot stop the payment after this point. It is important that you pay your fees to the University on time. Failure to do so may lead to a disruption in your course.

Continuing students who have tuition fee debt owing to the University from previous academic years will not be allowed to re-enrol until the debt and associated costs have been cleared.

There must be enough money in the nominated bank account to meet the payment at the time it is collected, otherwise your bank may make a charge to your account for each default.

If you wish to cancel your direct debit all you are doing is removing the option to pay by instalments. You will then be required to pay the outstanding balance in full immediately.

The instalment option is only available on direct debit payment method otherwise you will be required to pay the full fee on receipt of invoice.

Changing your personal information

  • You are required to update any changes to your address, telephone numbers or personal email addresses as soon as they occur.
  • If you are an overseas student studying on a Tier 4 visa, it is a legal requirement of your visa to ensure that the University has up-to-date information on record at all times.
  • It is your responsibility to update your contact details and to provide the University with a current term time address – this can be done via OSIS (Online Student Information System).
  • If you are unable to do this you should advise your student office/course administrator of any changes as soon as possible.
