Pay by bank transfer or online payment platform
Find out what you need to do to make a fee payment by bank transfer or online payment platform using the Convera GlobalPay for Students website.
What is Convera GlobalPay for Students?
Convera Globalpay for Students allows you to pay your tuition fees in a currency of your choice. It is a simple and secure way to make a payment with competitive rates.
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.

Do you need help?
If you have paid a deposit towards your programme, this will be deducted from the total amount of fees you have to pay.
Your deposit will not appear on your invoice.
If you pay your deposit early in the year, there may be a delay before this shows on your student account in My finance.
You may need to pay other fees for your programme (for example, module fees or dissertation fees).
You can find out if you need to pay extra fees for your programme on the University’s degree finder.
The amount you owe will appear in My finance after your invoice has been raised.
Module fees and individual course fees
Any module or individual course fees must be paid as soon as possible and before the start date of your course. You cannot pay these as instalments.
Dissertation fees and postgraduate research costs
Dissertation fees and postgraduate research costs can be paid as part of your instalment plan.
If you’re having financial problems, we encourage you to book an appointment to speak to our team. We will offer support and provide options available. We hold these appointments on Microsoft Teams.
Before your appointment, think about a payment plan that might work for you.
We will assess your circumstances and decide on the best plan for you.
You might need a refund if you have overpaid your tuition fees. This could happen if you have made a payment in full but not taken away your deposit from the fees total.
To get a refund, you should contact the Finance Helpline with the subject line: ‘Request a refund for tuition fees’.
If you paid by bank transfer or online payment option
If you are due a refund and paid by bank transfer, then the money will be returned to you through the same method of payment. If the payment card has expired, then you will receive a refund by bank transfer.
We can only refund money to the original payer.
You can find out more by reading our credit balance refund policy.
