How to pay your postgraduate course fees

There are several easy ways to pay your fees. All UK payments should be made in pounds sterling (£). See International Bank Transfers for home currency options for international students.

If you are starting your studies in September 2018, our Money Matters guide will provide all the information you need:

Option 1: Direct debit instalments

Accommodation and tuition fees can only be paid by instalment if you have a valid direct debit set up with the University. A separate direct debit must be set up for each of these fee types.

This can be setup online during enrolment or at any other time using our secure site: www.kingston.ac.uk/dd. Please note that if your direct debit mandate from the previous year is still active you will not need to set up a new one.

Payment via this method enables you to spread your payments in line with the University's instalment plan, and there is no charge for paying in this way. You will need a valid UK bank or building society account that allows direct debit transactions. The instalments will be collected automatically from your chosen account on the due dates.

You will receive an email confirmation once your direct debit has been accepted and this will be sent to your Kingston University email address. If you do not receive your confirmation you should contact the Accounts Receivable team to ensure that your direct debit instruction has been received.

Remember: Payment by instalment is only possible where a valid direct debit is in place. Your direct debit must be in place at least 10 days prior to the instalment date for us to collect the payment directly from your account. Ensure you have enough money in the account on the due dates, otherwise your bank may make a charge to your account for every default.

It is your responsibility to check that your direct debit has been activated. 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.

Option 2: Online payment

The most convenient way to pay your fees is by using the University's secure payment website: www.kingston.ac.uk/epay

You can pay using cards that display these symbols:

If you are unable to access the internet and you are the authorised cardholder, the University will be able to take a payment over the phone if you call +44 (0)20 8328 7005.

Option 3: International Bank Transfers

International students can pay their fees using Kingston University's payments platform powered by our partner Western Union Business Solutions. This allows you, your parents and sponsors to pay GBP student fees in the currency of your choice and provides you with a simple and secure way to make your payment.

Option 4: Postgraduate loan payment plan

If you are in receipt of a postgraduate loan for 2018/9 it is possible to arrange a payment plan which is aligned to the disbursement dates. In order to arrange this you will need to raise an enquiry in the 'My Fee Payments' section of the StudentHUB and include a copy of the letter you have received confirming the funding you have been approved for. This will be reviewed by the Accounts Receivable team and details of the payment plan will be emailed to you. Please note that it will not be possible to take these payments via direct debit so you will be required to pay the agreed instalments online (see option 2 above) on or before the due dates.

Fraudulent payments

If the University suspects that a card payment may be fraudulent, we reserve the right to immediately suspend access to IT and library facilities and we may refer the matter to the police. You will be subject to the University's Student Disciplinary Procedure.
