How to Pay

Home 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

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:

  • 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. 

Please note that sponsors must pay in full within 30 days of receipt of invoice and cannot pay by instalments.

Please note that the University does not accept cash payments for fees. Please choose one of the following options:
