Pay your tuition fees for International undergraduate and postgraduate students

Updated on 23 April 2022

Find out the different ways you can pay your tuition fees

On this page

If you, a member of your family, or an individual such as a family friend are paying your fees, then you are a self funded student.

If you are being funded by an official sponsor, such as the UK or Home Government, British Council, international organisation, international company or home university, then you are a funded student.

Tuition fee deposit

If you have been assessed as having an International fee status and have been unconditionally accepted, you will have to pay a tuition fee deposit.

For students joining us in January 2022 the minimum tuition fee deposit is £1,000. For students applying for courses starting from 2022/23 onwards, the minimum tuition fee deposit is £2,000. For some specialist courses the fee deposit amount is higher. This will be shown on your Firm Acceptance letter. You can pay more if you want to.

Once you’ve uploaded proof of payment of the tuition fee deposit we will send your Admissions Letter and ask you to confirm when you plan to arrive in Dundee. We’ll issue your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) statement shortly after that. This allows you to apply for your visa.

All pre-paid tuition fees and payments towards University accommodation are listed on your CAS statement for your visa application.

If you need to apply for a Student visa, we recommend that you pay more than the minimum fee deposit. This shows you are committed to studying with us. We have seen from previous students that this can improve the strength of visa applications.

If you are a funded (or sponsored) student, then you need to upload your letter of confirmed funding to My Applications. You don't need to pay the tuition fee deposit in addition to this, as long as your letter of funding confirms you are a funded student.

We will email you to let you know:

  • when your tuition fee invoice first becomes available
  • when your fees are due to be paid within 7 days
  • if your tuition fees are overdue.

Make sure you check My Applications regularly to make sure you don't miss any messages.

Paying using your own credit or debit card

Log in to eVision and click My Balance, your fee is displayed on screen.

  • View items you can pay by instalments: paperless Direct Debit (instalment plan). You can pay fees of £400 or more by instalments from your UK bank account.

The Direct Debit plan consists of

  • 3 monthly payments for a module fee.

Once you've decided which option is right for you just follow the instructions on the screen.

If information on scholarships / sponsorship is missing please check your Student Profile. If your funding is not shown in your Student Profile please contact

A family member or friend is paying using their credit or debit card

If a family member of friend is with you in person, you can log in to My Applications and ask them to complete the payment form.

If they are not with you, they'll not be able to access My Applications for security reasons. Instead, they can use our open payment gateway service to pay using their credit or debit card.

Paying by Western Union or TransferMate

We have partnerships with Western Union and TransferMate which let you pay with:

  • no currency conversion fees
  • no bank charges
  • beneficial exchange rates.

Compare both services to find the best rate for you.

Paying by bank transfer

If you are paying by international bank transfer you can pay the initial deposit or full tuition fees. Instalment payments are only available from a UK bank account which you can set up after you arrive in the UK.

To pay by bank transfer your bank will need the following information:

Currency and amount quote the GBP tuition fee amount
Reference Full name (start with surname) and student ID number
This is important as we need to know who the fee is from.
Beneficiary’s name University of Dundee
Address Nethergate, Dundee, DD1 4HN
Bank Royal Bank of Scotland plc, 3 High Street, Dundee, DD1 9LY, UK
Sort code 835000
Account number 00279759
IBAN GB60RBOS83500000279759

You also need to instruct your bank that all charges (including those of the University's bank) are paid by the sender. You will need to pay any difference between the fee and the amount received. Please keep your copy of the bank transfer document as you might need to prove to the University that you have made the correct payment.

Paying by instalments

You can pay your fees by an approved instalment plan, normally direct debit. Instructions for this can be found in My Balance for you to follow.

Tuition fee payment terms

Any balance of tuition fees are due for payment at matriculation during your first week.

You are responsible for ensuring your fees are paid in full and on time. If we have not received payment of your fees from your sponsor within three months of matriculation, then you will be billed directly.

If the University does not receive full payment from your sponsor, for example, where bank charges have been deducted, you will be liable to pay the difference. The Cash Office will let you know about any shortfall.

The University will not pursue any sponsor for amounts of £100 or less. This means you will have to pay all charges and postgraduate continuation of study fees. You will need to pursue your sponsor yourself for any money you consider to be your sponsor's liability.

If you fail to pay your tuition fees

If you have not paid your tuition fees in full or arranged to pay by Direct Debit instalments by the date given on your tuition fee invoice you will be liable to pay a late payment fee of 3.5% on your tuition fee (maximum charge £400).

The total late payment fee depends on your tuition fee amount. For example, an overdue fee of £4,500 will incur a late payment fee of £157.50.

If you do not make a payment which is due under an instalment plan, we reserve the right to cancel the instalment plan. This will result in your fees becoming due in full immediately and you will be charged a late payment fee.

If you do not pay your tuition fees

  • we will revoke access to University facilities such as the Library and your IT account
  • you will be withdrawn from your studies, you will be unable to receive tuition and sit exams
  • we will tell your funding body that your student status has been revoked
  • you will not receive your degree certificate
  • your details will be passed to a debt collection agency
  • if you are a Student visa (was Tier 4) holder: we will notify UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) that we are no longer sponsoring your Visa. This will result in your Visa being invalid and you will be required to return home.
