Information for Students - Fee Instalments

As a Self-funding student you should pay your tuition fees in full prior to or at enrolment.

Alternatively you may be eligible to join one of the University’s instalment schemes made available during online enrolment.

All students must clearly indicate their chosen payment option at enrolment.

Paying your fees in full

The University offers the facility to allow students to pay tuition fees prior to, or upon enrolment.

If you do pay your tuition fees in full prior to or at enrolment you may be eligible for a prompt payment reward of 3%.

Full details of payment methods and the prompt payment discount are available on How to Pay.

Paying your fees in instalments

If your share of the tuition fee liability is £50 or more you may be eligible to opt for one of the following instalment schemes at enrolment.

Semester based system

If you are a full time student and enrolling for a full academic year you may pay your tuition fee in two instalments.

The instalment plan enables you to pay a minimum of 50% of the tuition fee prior to, or upon enrolment.  If you have paid a tuition fee deposit prior to enrolment the amount you will be required to pay at enrolment will be 50% of the tuition fee due, less any deposit or further tuition fees monies already paid.

The remaining balance of your fees will become due after approximately 5 months from the official start date of your programme.

At enrolment you will be offered the opportunity to set up a Recurring Card Payment for the next instalment. Alternatively you can arrange to pay your second instalment by one of the methods detailed on How to Pay by the due date.

Monthly based scheme

When you enrol online you can spread your payments across instalments starting from the date that you enrol. A first instalment will be taken by credit or debit card, and then you will need to set up a Recurring Card Payment in which the remainder of the payments will be deducted monthly on or around the 15th of the month.

Any deposits or further tuition fees monies paid in advance will be deducted before we calculate the instalment amounts.

For modular study, payments will be spread across monthly payments from the date of enrolment until the month that your last module ends.

For programme enrolments, payments will be spread across monthly payments from the date of enrolment on the following basis:

  • Students enrolled on Undergraduate programmes will be offered to pay over 8 months.  Instalments are split equally over the remaining eligible instalments after the commencement date of the programme.
  • Students enrolled on Postgraduate programmes will be offered to pay over 12 months. Instalments are split equally over the remaining eligible instalments after the commencement date of the programme.
