How you pay your tuition fees

At the start of each new academic year, you need to either pay your tuition fees (plus any other related course costs) or provide evidence your fees will be paid by a sponsor.

pay your tuition fees online via epay.

Sponsors include:

  • Student Loans Company. This includes the Student Awards Agency for Scotland, the local authorities in Wales and the library boards in Northern Ireland
  • an employer 
  • Another body, such as a local authority, that have accepted responsibility for paying your fees

Please note, your sponsor must have a UK address and postcode.

If it is unclear who is paying your fees, or the sponsor refuses or fails to pay, the University will assume you are paying them. 

If your fees are not being paid by a sponsor, the University expects full payment of any outstanding fees within 30 days of enrolment, unless arrangements have been made to pay by instalments.

If you are paying your tuition fees yourself, you should arrange an instalment plan at the beginning of your programme or year of study. You can do this through epay.

For further information regarding tuition fees, please contact us.

I'm having problems paying my fees

If you have not paid your fees in full within 30 days of enrolment, established an instalment plan, or provided evidence of sponsorship, we will contact you regarding fee payment.

Initially we will contact you by email, to your University account. We will then contact you by formal letter, to your home and local addresses. 

Please do not ignore these communications. Our intention is to remind you about your outstanding balance and to highlight that the sooner you address any issues regarding payment the easier it may be for us to assist you. 

If you are having trouble paying your fees, please contact the Student Administration Centre.

If your situation is of a temporary nature, or there is a delay in confirmation of funding, the Student Administration Centre may be able to extend the period before the University takes further action, or establish an instalment plan that takes account of your particular circumstances. 

If your situation is more serious, or there is an issue with your funding, for example if there is a delay in support from the Student Loans Company, the Student Administration Centre may arrange for you to see an advisor from our Student Advice and Wellbeing team.

Alternatively, you can contact the Student Advice and Wellbeing team directly.
