Sponsor Customers

The University may agree to accept payment from a sponsor in respect of any part of a fee owed to the University by a student. Only private or public sector bodies are acceptable as sponsors.

Where a sponsor payment is withdrawn or reclaimed, including funding received from the Student Loans Company or other funding bodies, the student will be liable for any tuition fees.

Sponsored students should provide an official letter at enrolment confirming the amount of fees to be paid by the sponsor for the relevant academic session.

Sponsorship letters should:

  • Be on letter headed paper, be addressed to the University of Lincoln, and signed by your line manager or director.
  • 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.
  • If your sponsor requires a purchase order number or other reference number quoting on their invoice, this should also be indicated on the letter.

The University, at its discretion, may refuse to recognise a sponsor where reasonable efforts have not established the existence of that sponsor or of the sponsor’s ability to make a payment. The University shall notify the student of its decision to reject a sponsor.

Any part of a tuition fee payable by a sponsor must be paid within 30 days of the invoice. Where a sponsor’s payment is outstanding more than 30 days the student will be automatically liable for any outstanding sum. This is without prejudice to the University’s right to require any sponsor to pay a fee on or before enrolment.

Please note that the University does not accept cash payments, please choose one of the following options.

Payments can be made by debit or credit card via the University’s website at the following address: The Student ID and Date of Birth will be required if payment is made online.
