Option 3: nominate a sponsor to pay your fees
If your fees are being paid for you by a sponsor (including a government award body) you must provide evidence of sponsorship or award at matriculation so that an invoice can be issued to the named person or organisation.
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.
Part-time or distance learning courses
If you are taking 60 credits or more over an academic year, you can set up a payment plan to pay your fees over a period of time. If you study fewer than 60 credits on a part-time or distance learning course, you must pay in full before starting the course.
