As an externally-funded student the process of paying your tuition fees will depend on the type of external funding you receive.
The payment of all fees and charges is always your responsibility, in accordance with the terms and conditions you signed when you accepted your offer to study.
What does externally-funded mean?
You may be considered an externally-funded student if you are:
- funded by a sponsor
- receiving financial support from your government
- receiving a tuition fee student loan
Receiving funds direct from your sponsor
If you are receiving funds for your students fees direct from your sponsor then you are not considered as externally funded. Please visit our self-funded page for more information.
Payment of fees is your responsibility
If your sponsor does not pay the fees invoice within 30 days of the invoice date then you will be liable for payment in full.
If you have applied for external funding but it is not confirmed when you start your programme of study, you will need to make alternative arrangements for payment. This would require you to pay your student fees like a self-funded student.
Payment processes for externally-funded students
