Register how you will pay your tuition fees 

You need to complete this form, which was previously known as Financial Registration Form, before the start of every academic year to advise how you intend to pay your tuition fees. 

The payment options available to you depend on how you are funding your studies.  By completing the form, you will get information on how to pay your tuition fees or how to show proof of funding to the University.

Tuition fees 

A tuition fee is linked to every programme. You can find this information in your offer letter. Alternatively, you can view up-to-date tuition fee levels online. 

Look up the tuition fees for your programme 

If your fees are not paid, you could risk your place on your programme. You will be unable to access any of the University’s services and facilities. 

The different funding types 

Depending on your funding, you need to follow certain steps to ensure your fees are being paid. 

Paying your fees 

You need to register as student at the beginning of your studies and then for every academic year after that. This process is called matriculation. 

Your student fees must be paid in full on or before matriculation for each new academic year unless you are paying by instalment. How you can pay your tuition fees depends on your type of funding. 

Options for paying your tuition fees 

Once you paid your fees, you will receive a receipt and will be able to see received payments in My finance. 

How to pay your tuition fees safely 

  • Use the trusted and secure payment methods provided by the University. 

  • Don't give your money to someone else to pay for you. 

  • Don't give your login and passwords for payment portals to anyone else.
