Tuition fee deposit
All self-funded, full-time international applicants must pay a tuition fee deposit (a minimum of £3,000) as a condition of their offer, to confirm your place and also assure the UK Visas and Immigration that you are a genuine student.
Sponsored students will need to provide a copy of their official financial sponsorship letter.
Details of how to make payment and the different payment plans available to you will included with your offer letter. If you have not received a copy of this please contact us on email@example.com.
Option 1: Full Fee Payment
If you pay your fees in full before the start date of your course you will receive an additional £250 discount, known as our Full Fee Payment Award, as well as any additional scholarships noted on your offer letter.
Option 2: Two Instalments
Alternatively, you can pay your fees in two instalments. If you choose to pay in two instalments, you will not benefit from our £250 Full Fee Payment Award. In this instance, you will be required to make a deposit payment of £3,000 to confirm your place, and make an additional payment of 50% of the remaining balance before the start date of your course in order to allow you to enrol. The remaining balance of your tuition fees will be due in January for September/October starters and in April for January/February starters (exact deadlines can be found in the financial information and regulations included with your offer letter).
There are four ways that payment can be made the University. These methods can be used to make your initial £3,000 deposit payment and any future payments towards your tuition fees.
