Self Funded

As a self-funded student you can pay your tuition fees in full or in most cases we can agree for you to pay by instalments. You can pay online with a debit or credit card, or via the GlobalPay platform which allows bank transfers and payments in other currencies, or by setting up a Direct Debit.

What does self-funded mean?

You may be considered to be a self-funded student if you are:

  • funding your own studies
  • getting financial help from family or friends
  • receiving financial assistance direct from an external funder (excluding educational loans from a government agency)

Receiving an educational loan

If you are receiving an educational loan then you are not considered to be a self-funded student.

Payment options for self-funded students

Advance payment

You can pay your tuition fees in full or monthly payments in advance of the programme start date and student fees due date.

Debit or credit card payment

You can pay your tuition fees with a debit or credit card through one of the University’s secure online payment systems.

Bank transfer and online payments platform

You can use the GlobalPay for Students platform to pay student fees by bank transfer or by ePayment in a currency of your choice including GBP from UK bank accounts or where your local currency is not available.

Direct Debit instalments

The University is able to agree in most cases that tuition fees can be paid in three instalments. You must have a UK bank account to pay by Direct Debit instalments.
