Pay your tuition fees if you have sponsorship or a scholarship
If you have an approved scholarship provider or sponsor, then it is their responsibility to pay either all or part of your tuition fees. If there are any leftover fees to pay, then you are responsible for making a payment.
What you need to do if you have full or partial external funding
If you are receiving funding from an approved scholarship provider or sponsor, you must send us proof of your funding.
Register how you will pay your tuition fees.
Register as a student online.
If you have partial external funding, then it is your responsibility to pay for the rest of the tuition fees not covered by your funding. You will need to make a payment by card, bank transfer or set up a Recurring Card Payment (RCP) instalment plan.
Your funding must be confirmed before the start date of your programme.
The University reserves the right to reject a sponsor. If this happens, then it is your responsibility to pay for your tuition fees.
If you have a combination of funding sources (for example, a loan and more than one scholarship) then you will need to contact the Finance team.
In your email, include the subject heading: ‘Tuition fees funding enquiry’.
If your sponsor or scholarship provider gives you the money directly, then it is your responsibility to pay for your tuition fees. In this case, you will be defined as a self-funded student.
A family member or friend cannot be your sponsor. If you are supported by a family member or friend, then you will also be defined as a self-funded student.
Step 1: Send us proof of your funding
You must provide us with proof of funding from your approved sponsor or scholarship provider as soon as possible. The evidence should be a written authorised agreement that confirms the following:
how much of your fees they will pay (this could be the amount or percentage)
the type of fees they will pay (sponsors usually pay for tuition fees so you may receive an invoice for other types of fees, for example University accommodation fees)
how many years they will financially support you
the purchase order (PO) number (if required by your sponsor)
the full name of your sponsor who authorised the agreement
the contact details of your sponsor
You should email a copy of the official headed documentation with this information to the Fees team.
In your email, include the subject heading: ‘Evidence of external funding’.
If you do not provide evidence of your funding, then we will issue you an invoice that states how much money you owe for your tuition fees.
Your scholarship provider or sponsor must pay the invoice we send them within 30 days of the invoice date. If not, then you will be sent an invoice.
If you have provided proof of funding
If you have provided proof of your external funding and if your award letter states the funding is for your whole programme, then you do not need to send us the evidence for future years of study.
Step 2: Register how you will pay your tuition fees (if you have not done so)
This form gives you directions on how to pay your tuition fees and lets our team know how you intend to pay your fees. If you have not yet filled it out, you should do this now.
You will need to complete this form once at the start of every academic year, or whenever the way you fund your studies changes.
You do not need to complete this form if you have done so previously in the current academic year. Only complete it again if the way you fund your studies has changed. If you do not need to complete the form again, go to step 3.
Step 3: Complete your student registration online
As part of the tuition fees payment process, you will need to complete your student registration online for each academic year.
Step 4: Pay for your fees (if partially funded or support is taken away)
If you are partially funded
If you receive partial external funding, then you will need to pay the rest of your tuition fees yourself. In this case, you must pay your tuition fees by one of the following payment methods:
one payment (by card, bank transfer or online payment platform)
set up an instalment plan
If you lose funding from your scholarship provider or sponsor
If your sponsor takes away their support from you or they fail to pay the invoice, then you must pay the remaining fees. In this case, we will send you an invoice that states how much you owe.
It is important that all your tuition fees are paid by the end of your programme otherwise you will not be able to graduate or enroll to the next academic year.
Check My finance
You will be able to see a record of your tuition fees payments by checking My finance by logging into MyEd.
Do you need help?
You may need to pay other fees for your programme (for example, module fees or dissertation fees).
You can find out if you need to pay extra fees for your programme on the University’s degree finder.
The amount you owe will appear in My finance after your invoice has been raised.
Module fees and individual course fees
Any module or individual course fees must be paid as soon as possible and before the start date of your course. You cannot pay these as instalments.
Dissertation fees and postgraduate research costs
Dissertation fees and postgraduate research costs can be paid as part of your instalment plan.
If you have paid a deposit towards your programme, this will be deducted from the total amount of fees you have to pay.
Your deposit will not appear on your invoice.
If you pay your deposit early in the year, there may be a delay before this shows on your student account.
If you pay your tuition fees in one payment, make sure you deduct the deposit from the total amount.
If you pay with RCP (Recurring Card Payment), the deposit will automatically be deducted from your 3 instalments.
If you’re having financial problems, we encourage you to book an appointment to speak to our team. We will offer support and provide options available. We hold these appointments on Microsoft Teams.
Before your appointment, think about a payment plan that might work for you.
We will assess your circumstances and decide on the best plan for you.
