How to Pay

Important Information

Opening a bank account

If you are planning on opening a student bank account or an account on your arrival in the UK, you can set up your instalment plan once you have received your bank details. Please note that you must set up your instalment plan before it closes otherwise you will no longer be able to pay in instalments and your fees are payable in full, immediately.

Defaulting on Payments

At the start of each month (after the due date) the University will levy an administration charge of £20 in respect of any unpaid instalments. A further £20 will be charged for each subsequent month the instalment remains unpaid.

Direct Debit Payments

Please ensure that you have sufficient funds in your bank account 2 working days prior to the due date of each instalment. Where the payment date falls on a weekend, the payment will be collected the following working day. If you wish to change your bank account details, please ensure you give us at least 10 working days notice prior to any instalment being due. If you cancel your Direct Debit, your instalment agreement with the University will be cancelled and your account will default to the full payment being due immediately.

If you change your bank account, you must contact the Student Fees office to advise of this so that a new instalment plan can be set up. You can find out who to call by viewing our contact list, or looking at the top right of your bill.

Credit/Debit Card Payments

These will be taken automatically from the card details you have provided. If you wish to change your credit/debit card details please telephone the Student Fees office immediately - view contacts.  If your card expires during the term of the instalment plan, the card holder will be contacted with a request to provide alternative card details.
