Fees, Payments & Financial Support

Whilst at the University, we hope that you are solely focused on your academic work and have support available to help acheive this. However we are aware that finances can be an issue whilst studying. Within this section you will find a whole host of information on Fees, Payments and Financial Support that we can offer to help you during your time here at University.


If you're a sponsored student whether it's via the Students Loan Company or an Embassy, we will directly invoice your sponsor for tuition fees. If we do not have verification of your sponsorship, you will automatically become responsible for payment of your fees.

If you are responsible for your own fee's we will invoice you accordingly as per your arrangement; whether this is to pay by instalments (3 or 7 instalments available) or whether it's an upfront lump sum payment.

If you have any queries in regards to the Policy around paying your fee's or acquiring a refund, please take a look at our Tuition Fees & Refunds Policy.
