Pay Fees by Instalment

You can pay tuition fees in instalments for all postgraduate courses that last longer than 30 weeks, including graduate diplomas and research degrees,

Before setting up an instalment plan

It is important to note that:

  • The first tuition fee instalment must be paid before you can enrol onto your course. If you've made a successful application for the Postgraduate Master's Loan or Doctoral Loan, you will only receive your first instalment of the loan after enrolling onto your course. Therefore, it is recommended that you make provisions for this. If you have questions about paying tuition fees using a Postgraduate Master's Loan or Doctoral Loan, please contact the Student Fee Manager at your College using the details on this page.
  • If you're an international student, UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) require you to have the funds to pay the full tuition fees for the first year. You must have held these funds for at least 28 consecutive days at the point you apply for the visa. See our Immigration & Visas page for more information.
  • Remaining up to date with payments is a necessary part of your enrolment. If you enrol and withdraw from the course 3 weeks after the course start date, or the date you first attended if later, you are liable for the full tuition fee. See the Student Fees Policy for more information.

How to set up an instalment plan

In the online payment gateway, you can pay your first instalment and set up a payment plan which will automatically debit funds from your bank account or card on the relevant dates. You will then be sent an email confirming the payment plan and a receipt for the payment you have made.
