How to Pay PG

Home/EU/EEA Students

If your tuition fees are not paid by a sponsor or student finance, you will need to pay them yourself.

Whether you are paying in full or setting up an approved payment plan either option needs to be completed within 21 days of enrolment. If you do not complete this step your right to study may be affected as outlined in the University General regulations

Please refer to any correspondence you may have received in relation to Tuition Fees for the amount you will be expected to pay.

Sponsorship letters (from commercial bodies only, not a private individual such as a friend or relative) will be accepted providing that the correct letter structure is adhered to.  The letter should:

  • Contain contact details of the person/department responsible for payment of your fees
  • Include your name, the academic year you are being sponsored for, the programme title, and the sponsorship amount.
