Tuition Fees

Tuition fees vary depending on your programme of study. For the best information on the exact tuition fees for your degree, please check your course page.

We will automatically assess your tuition fee status based on the information you give us during the application process. In some cases, to help us assess what you should pay, we may ask you to complete a tuition fee assessment form.


International Students are required to pay a £5,500 tuition fee deposit to secure their place. This must be paid in full. When you are paying your deposit, make sure you keep a record as we do not provide a receipt. You can then decide on which option works best for you to pay the rest of your fees. 

To pay your deposit, visit our secure epay site.

Deposit refunds will only be made to the bank account originally used to make the payment.

If you are a fully sponsored student, you may not need to pay a deposit. Please read all correspondence from us carefully.

Paying Your Fees (International Students)

If you are funding your degree with your own money or through a funding body, you will likely need to make your tuition payments yourself directly to the University. Check the relevant website for your funding body to understand how and when they will make their payment toward your tuition, and make sure you have a plan for how you will make your payments before you start.

After paying your tuition fee deposit you can then set up a payment plan or pay your tuition fees in full. We currently offer three different options for payment plans. You can set up your payment plan prior to or at registration by clicking here to access our secure ePay site.

Option 1: Payment in Full

We accept payment by cash, cheque, direct fund transfer, and by credit or debit card (we accept Visa, Visa debit, Visa electron and Mastercard) on our ePay secure payment site. Please ensure the payment is made before registration.

If you are studying 40 credits or less per trimester then payment must be made in full

Option 2: Set up a payment plan

We have three different options for payment plans. Please select one from the options listed below. 

Payment plan options for students starting in September

  • 50% in October and the balance in January 
  • Three payments in OctoberJanuary and March
  • Six monthly payments from October until March

Payment plan options for students starting in January

  • 50% in February and the balance in May
  • Three payments in FebruaryMay and July
  • Six monthly payments from February until July

You can set up a payment plan prior to or at matriculation by clicking here to access our secure ePay site.

Option 3: Nominate a sponsor to pay your fees

If your fees are being paid for you by a sponsor, you must provide evidence of sponsorship or award at matriculation so that an invoice can be issued to the named person or organisation. Examples of a sponsor might be your employer, a scholarship, or a government award body (which is different to a government funding body).

  • If you are being sponsored for more than one academic year this information will need to be updated at the start of each new academic year.

  • If your sponsor withdraws financial support or fails to pay all or any part of your fees you remain liable and will have to pay any amount outstanding to the University.
