Paying fees on behalf of a student by Direct Debit

Where tuition fees are paid by instalment, the first instalment must be paid in advance or when matriculating. The second and third instalments can only be paid by Direct Debit.

Family or friends who wish to pay for students may pay by Direct Debit. Please refer to the Direct Debit checklist and ensure the student name and UUN are quoted on the online or paper mandate.

Direct Debit checklist

The Direct Debit mandate will remain valid for the full period of study and used each year for the payment of tuition fees providing it is not cancelled. Students completing, or withdrawing from a programme will need to set up a new direct debit mandate if returning to study for a new programme.

You should notify the Income Section if there is a change of bank account, change of payment method or change of payer, at least 20 days before the next instalment date.

If you are considered to be a sponsor you cannot pay by instalment. Please refer to sponsor and fee definitions for clarification. Invoice terms are strictly 30 days.

The bank account holder will be notified in writing (the instalment plan letter) at least 10 days before the direct debit is taken from the bank. All other communication will be with the student. If an instalment plan letter is not received then please contact the Income Section.
