How it works?

Simply select the country you are paying from, the amount you wish to pay and your preferred method of payment. Look for the ‘show more options’ on the page end at step 1 if you can't see your preferred currency. Enter the student details (with UUN) and payer details (if different). If you choose to pay by bank transfer, use the payment instructions provided to make your payment through your bank (at branch, online or phone banking). If you select an online payment option, you will be redirected to complete your payment.

The UUN is linked to the payment reference shown on the transfer instructions and it is important this reference is used as it uniquely identifies the payment.
