Paying your tuition fees

There are various ways for you to pay your tuition fees. When you register online, you will agree the arrangements to pay your tuition fees. Online registration takes place before enrolment.

Paying by instalments

If using a credit/debit card, you can pay your fees for 2022/23 and 2023/24 entry in two instalments online. This option is available to all postgraduate research students, whether you are studying on a full or part-time basis.

If you pay in two instalments by setting up a recurring debit/credit card payment authority, 50% of the fee (after any deposits or discounts have been applied) must be paid on or before enrolment. The final instalment (50%) will be claimed from the relevant card account approximately three calendar months from the due date of the first instalment. 

If you have been awarded a Doctoral Loan and are paying online, you may elect to pay your tuition fees in four instalments for 2022/23 and 2023/24 entry. 1% of the fee (after any deposits or discounts have been applied) must be paid on or before enrolment. The second instalment (33%) will be claimed from the relevant card account approximately two weeks after the official start date of your course. The third instalment (33%) will be claimed from the relevant card account approximately three calendar months from the due date of the first instalment and the final 33% will be claimed from the relevant card account approximately six calendar months from the due date of the first instalment.

For either instalment plan, you will be informed of the exact due date on which the remaining instalments will be payable when you set up your recurring card payment authority.

Students from the USA who receive a Federal Loan can make arrangements to pay their fees in three instalments that tie in with their loan payments.
