Pay your tuition fees in one payment

To pay your tuition fees for a full academic year in one payment, you will need to pay online either by card, bank transfer or online payment platform.

What you need to do to pay your fees in one payment 

1. Register how you will pay your fees.  

2. Complete your student registration online.

3. Work out how much you need to pay.

4. Pay your fees using the payment system provided by card, bank transfer or online payment platform. 

Step 1: Register how you will pay your fees (if you have not done so)

If you have not already completed this form, you should do so now to tell us how you will pay your fees.  

You will need to complete this form once at the start of every academic year, or whenever the way you fund your studies changes. 

You do not need to complete this form if you have done so previously in the current academic year. Only complete it again if the way you fund your studies has changed. If you do not need to complete the form again, go to step 2.

Step 2: Complete your student registration online

As part of the matriculation process, you will need to complete online registration before we can issue your invoice.

Step 3: Work out how much you need to pay 

You can work out how much you need to pay for your tuition fees by checking the amount on your offer letter or by searching for your programme on the Tuition Fees site.  

Search for your tuition fees 

You can pay in advance  

You can pay your tuition fees before you receive an invoice. 

If you are paying for your tuition fees in a different currency, you will need to think about currency exchange rates or market shares when you pay for your fees. These rates may change unexpectedly and this could affect the cost of your tuition fees.  

If you pay in advance, then you should check your invoice when you receive it to make sure you have not overpaid or underpaid your tuition fees. 

Your invoice

Invoices for 2022-2023 delayed until September 2022 

Due to upgrades to our financial systems over summer, we will start to issue student invoices from 5th September 2022. If you know how much you need to pay, you can still pay your tuition fees before you receive your invoice. 

We will issue an invoice showing the total amount of tuition fees you owe, after you complete your student registration. This will be sent to your University student email account. 

Once we issue your invoice, you can see the exact amount of tuition fees you need to pay for the academic year.

August to October is the busiest period for issuing invoices, so it may take several weeks to receive yours. If you have already contacted us, we would kindly ask you not to send any follow-up emails. This will help us get back to you sooner. Thank you for your patience. 

Please pay your invoice in full once received, this will be emailed to your University student email account and visible on your My finance.

We are still in the process of charging some fees, so you may not see an invoice when you log in initially. The Fees and Student Support Team are working actively on this and hope to have all fees  charged by the end of September.

Deposit payments have still to be recorded on the system. These will be deducted from your tuition fee invoices in the next two weeks.

Please be aware that sponsor invoices may not appear on your account until end of September.

If you have any problems making a payment, you can contact the EdHelp team via their website edin.ac/edhelp or by calling 0131 651 5151 and selecting the option for questions regarding fee payments (phone lines open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4.30pm), but will be closed on Monday 19th of September.

Beware of using other providers  

The methods of payment we offer are very safe and allow us to track your payments, which is why we recommend them.  

You should not use a third party agent or ask someone you do not know to make a payment to the University. These methods may appear cheaper, but they may not be safe or may involve hidden costs.
