Yes. If your employer, embassy or organisation agrees to pay all or part of your tuition fees, the University will refer to them as your sponsor and will invoice them for the appropriate amount.
We must receive notification of sponsorship as soon as possible, and before enrolment, confirming that the sponsor will pay your tuition fees.
If you are sponsored by a company or organisation we will require notification of this to be provided via a completed Tuition Fees Sponsorship Agreement Form (PDF).
We do however understand that there are some embassy's that will only provide notification by letter and in those instances this will be accepted as an alternate to the sponsor form provided it is on the embassy's headed paper, is signed by an authorised officer and contains the following information:
See our example sponsor letter (PDF).
Completed sponsor forms or letters should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your enrolment with Kingston University, or uploaded on OSIS.
Remember: It remains your responsibility to ensure that the Income and Receivables team has received notification of your sponsorship. The University will not be able to invoice your sponsor until we have received notification from them with all the relevant information.
If you are an international (non-EU) student and your sponsor is not paying your full tuition fee, you will be responsible for paying 50% of the full tuition fee amount in cleared funds before you can complete your enrolment.
If your sponsor fails to pay on receipt of invoice, or they withdraw their support at any point in the year, then you will be responsible for any outstanding fees at that point and the University will hold you liable for that amount. You will also be subject to the University's debt recovery procedures.
