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 other Government, British Council, international organisation, international company, or home university, then you are a funded student.

Tuition fee deposit

If you have accepted an unconditional offer from us, and you have International fee status, you will have to pay a tuition fee deposit.

We cannot issue an Admissions Letter or a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) until you have paid your tuition fee deposit.

The minimum tuition fee deposit for September 2022 is £2,000.

The minimum tuition fee deposit for January 2023 is £3,000.

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

Once you upload proof of payment of the tuition fee deposit, and if you have met all conditions of your offer and uploaded all required documents we will send a pre-CAS checklist to confirm details. Once this is returned we will issue your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) letter which will allow you to apply for your visa.

All pre-paid tuition fees (and payments towards University accommodation up to £1,334) are listed on your CAS statement for your visa application.

Funded students

If you are a funded (or sponsored) student, and have a letter that meets UKVI official financial sponsor rules then you need to upload your letter of confirmed funding to My Applications. You do not need to pay the tuition fee deposit in addition to this, as long as your letter of funding confirms you are a funded student.

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.
