How to pay your fees

At the University of Stirling we recognise that you need flexibility when paying your fees, so we provide a range of secure payment options.

Your tuition fee can either be paid in full prior to, or upon enrolment or spread over manageable monthly instalments.

We accept all major credit and debit cards with the exception of American Express. Please note that if you are an international student we also accept payments via Flywire, which allows you to pay via a range of other services including Alipay and UnionPay.

Please note that when making a payment, any refunds must be returned to the source of the original payment.

Make a general fee payment

Make a payment to your account for tuition fees or an international tuition fee deposit.

A general fee payment allows you as a student, your parent or guardian, or any other third party you wish to pay on your behalf, to make a deposit or payment online. The payment goes into your student account, within our student finance system.

Your student number and date of birth are required to proceed to the payment page.

If we’ve sent you an invoice, please use the ‘Pay a student invoice’ option.

Pay a student invoice

Paying tuition fees in instalments

You can pay your tuition fees in instalments to spread the cost over a longer period of time.

You can set up a recurring card payment (RCP) plan to pay your fees. This allows us to take payments from your credit or debit card when your instalments are due. Set up recurring card payments.

You can only set up a RCP when you have received your University of Stirling tuition fee invoice after completing enrolment.

Pay by semester

If you’re a full time student and enrolling for a full academic year, you may pay your tuition fee in two instalments. You’ll need to pay a minimum of 50% of the tuition fee prior to, or upon enrolment. If you’ve paid a tuition fee deposit prior to enrolment, the amount you’ll be required to pay at enrolment will be 50% of the tuition fee due, less any deposit or further tuition fees already paid. The remaining balance of your fees will be due after approximately five months from the official start date of your course.

At enrolment you’ll be offered the opportunity to set up a Recurring Card Payment for the next instalment.

Monthly payments

You can make payments in monthly instalments starting from the date you enrol. A first instalment will be taken by credit or debit card, and then you’ll need to set up a Recurring Card Payment, where the remainder of your payments will be deducted monthly on or around the 15th of the month. We’ll deduct any deposits or further tuition fees you’ve paid in advance before we calculate your instalments.

If you’re enrolled on an undergraduate course, you’ll be able to pay your fees in equal instalments over 8 months. Whereas if you’re enrolled on a postgraduate course, you’ll be able to pay in equal instalments over 12 months.
