Paying by Direct Debit instalments
The University is able to agree in most cases that tuition fees can be paid in three instalments.
New students and new direct debit payers must pay the first instalment (50%) by any method other than direct debit in advance or when matriculating.
Students who previously paid by direct debit and are continuing on programme the first instalment (50%) will be by direct debit.
The second and third instalments will be collected by direct debit from a nominated bank account.
Dissertation fees (60 credits) charged for courses provided on a modular basis can also be paid by instalment however all other modular fees charged at individual course level must be paid within 30 days of the invoice date.
Paying by direct debit instalment is easy and there are no extra charges for paying this way so long as payment is made as agreed. The following provides all the information to set up and pay by direct debit.
Once the instalment plan is in place then all the bank account holder has to do is make sure there is enough money in the UK bank account at least one day before the instalment date. An iPhone/Android app is available to help keep track of all your direct debits.
An administration charge of £20 will be levied against a student's account where a direct debit instalment is returned unpaid from the payers bank. Please be aware banks may also charge for each failed direct debit.
The concession to pay by direct debit instalment will no longer be available where payments are returned unpaid on more than one occasion. If this occurs or where a direct debit instruction is cancelled (without good reason and sufficient prior notice to the Finance Department) then any remaining sums due for the year in question will be required to be paid immediately (including the administration charge) and any future years payments will be required to be paid by direct credit only to the University.
