Matriculation - Paying Fees

All students must matriculate with the University at the beginning of their studies, and then matriculate for each new academic session thereafter.

Matriculation carries with it the agreement to abide by University rules. This includes payment of all student fees relating to your studies and allows access to the services and facilities offered to you by the University.

Payment of tuition fees, module fees and other charges or costs can be made with one or a combination of payment options and the flowchart may help in your decisions:

Self-funded students

If you are a self-funded student then we recommend paying online or by bank transfer.

Payment methods for self-funded students

Externally-funded students

If you are an externally-funded student then you need to send evidence of your financial support or sponsor funding to the relevant team.

By Welcome Week you should either pay the student fees or provide sponsor, grant or loan funding evidence to the relevant team.

Funder paying the University directly

If your funder is paying your tuition fees directly to the University then send your proof of sponsorship, grant or loan funding to the below email address. You do not need to do this if you have a US loan award, a career development loan award, or you are a undergraduate student with SAAS or Student Finance (SLC) funding.

Funder paying the student

If your funder is sending your tuition fees directy to you for onward remittance to the University then send your proof of sponsorship, grant or loan funding to the below email address. This includes students with a career development or Prodigy loan.
