Paying tuition fees

Paying your tuition fees can seem like a daunting process, but we aim to make it as stress-free and simple as possible.

New students

When starting a course you will need to sign an enrolment form that formally confirms you are liable to pay tuition fees. All students have to pay half of their tuition fees on their first day.

If you are sponsored or receive a student loan, your fees will be paid directly by your sponsorship organisation or the Student Loans Company. You will need to show evidence of your loan or sponsorship on enrolment.

Overseas students

If you're an overseas student, you would usually have to pay a deposit of 50% before you start.

Continuing students

You cannot continue a course unless you have paid all the fees for the previous year and agree to pay the coming year’s fees. If you are sponsored or have a student loan, we will send confirmation of your re-enrolment to the Student Loans Company directly.

Online payment facilities

You can make payments with your debit or credit card from anywhere with internet access via one of our three online payment facilities:


This system can be used to make tuition fee payments online or pay library fines.

You will need your student ID number and date of birth to log in. If you know your invoice number, this will also assist us with allocating your payment.

Print credits

This system can be used to top up your print credit balance. You will need your University username and password.


Payments for most other products and services can be made via our eShop.

  • Two equal instalments: 50% on enrolment and 50% by 31 December (31 May if you begin your course in January/February)
  • Nine equal instalments: The first instalment is payable at enrolment followed by eight equal payments by direct debit on the last working day of the month commencing in October (March for February starters).

If you are late with an instalment you may have to pay an extra charge of £100.
