When do I pay my fees?

When you need to pay your fees depends on both your level of study and whether you are required to pay the Home or International fee. Whatever payment option you chose, you will need to have met the requirements detailed in the Pre enrolment payment checklist before you will be able to complete your enrolment

UK students

If you intend to pay by instalment make sure that you have set up a recurring card payment instruction (RCP) for your tuition fees before enrolment.

The payment dates vary depending on your course start date. Use the table below to find the instalment dates for your course.

International students

All International students will be required to pay a minimum of 50% of their course fees in cleared funds prior to enrolment.

The remaining 50% balance can be paid by instalment – in line with the University's instalment plan. This option is only available where you have set up a recurring card payment instruction (RCP) using either an International or UK issued card.

Please note that if you intend to pay by instalment, a RCP must be in place before you can complete your enrolment so please set it up in plenty of time to avoid your enrolment being delayed.
