How and when course fees are paid

If you have a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England you don’t have to pay your fees up front. Most UK students will be able to apply for a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England (SFE) or from your regional funding body in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland (eligibility criteria apply).

You don’t start paying back your student loans until you leave University and you are earning more than £27,295 per year.

Paying your own fees

If you don’t want to borrow your tuition fees from the UK Government you can pay your fees directly to the University without taking out a loan. If you choose to pay in this way the fees will have to be paid while you are studying and payment cannot be deferred in the same way as a tuition fee loan. If you choose to pay your tuition fees in full before 1st September 2021 we can offer you a discount of £500. There are two payment options available:

Option 1: payment in full by 1 September 2021
  • Annual fee of £9,250 – with a £500 less discount, the total amount to pay would be £8,750
  • Annual fee of £6,780 – with a £500 less discount, the total amount to pay would be £6,280
Option 2: payment in two equal instalments
  • Annual fee of £9,250 – Two instalments of £4,625. The first payment by 1 September 2021; the second payment by 19 January 2022.
  • Annual fee of £6,780 – Two instalments of £3,390. The first payment by 1 September 2021; the second payment by 19 January 2022.

It is vitally important to make sure you have sufficient funding to pay your fees before you commence your course. If you cannot afford to make payment as outlined above, it is advisable for you to consider taking out a loan, if you are eligible to do so.

Part time tuition fees

New students who commence a part-time undergraduate course in 2021/22 may be eligible to apply to Student Finance England for a loan to pay their fees. Part-time students from Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland may be eligible to apply to their regional funding body for support to cover the cost of their tuition fees (eligibility criteria apply).

For more information on the eligibility criteria for part-time tuition fee loans, please visit the Student Finance page for undergraduate courses and the Student Loans Company page for postgraduate level courses. Professional courses are not eligible for student support from Student Finance England.

Self-Funding Undergraduate Part students

Payment options are as follows:

Instalment payments are available for fees in excess of £1,000. You will be able to request instalment payments at the pre-enrolment stage. Admissions will email you to tell you when you can pre-enrol – usually three or four weeks before your course starts. Payment plans must be set up via our online portal – the link will be emailed to you once you indicate you wish to pay by this method or you can request this in advance by calling 01604 892236 or 01604 892191.

Payment is by debit card or credit card only (all major cards except Diners and American Express). Once your payment plan is set up it will take 25% of your fee followed by instalments as below.
