Pay by card
Find out what you need to do to pay your tuition fees using a debit or credit card using our online payment platform.
If you are paying for your tuition fees
If you are paying your tuition fees, then you should log in to My finance to make a payment. You will need the following information to make a payment:
your University login details
your student ID number (UUN)
the address linked to the card used to make payment
If someone you know is paying your tuition fees
If someone you know has agreed to pay for your tuition fees (for example, a parent, guardian or family member) then they should use the Tuition Payment platform.
They will need to know your student ID number (UUN) and provide the address linked to the card that will make the payment.
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.
What card you can use
You can make a one-time payment for your tuition fees with a debit card or credit card.
It does not have to be a card for a UK bank account, and it does not have to be your card provided you have the permission of the cardholder (for example, it could be your parent’s or guardian’s).
Check the card limit
Make sure that the limit on the card you use is high enough for the payments that will come out. You can check with your bank or card provider if you’re not sure.
If the bank cannot increase the limit, you can manually make multiple payments over the course of a few days.
Exchange rate charges
If you are making a card payment in British pound sterling using a non-UK card, then you may need to pay currency exchange rates and this will be charged by the bank or card provider.
The University does not charge a transaction fee for a debit card or credit card payment.

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’.
We can only refund money to the original payer. You can find out more by reading our credit balance refund policy.
