How to pay your fees

You can either:

  • pay your tuition fees in full when you register
  • pay 50% of your tuition fees when you register and pay the rest in four months’ time

You can pay your tuition fees online, using Flywire.


Remember, as an international student you will also need to pay a deposit.

Budget for your living costs

As well as tuition fees, you need to budget for your living costs

You must budget for a minimum of £1,015 per month (at a maximum of nine months) to cover your living expenses, according to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI). Therefore if you are coming to study for a course of nine months or more you will need £9,135.

If you are accompanied by your family, you will need an additional £6,120 per year for your husband, wife and for each of your children.
