International student fees
You'll need to pay your tuition fees in full (or have an instalment arrangement to pay the rest of your fees in place) before the start date of your course. This is very important - if you don’t do this you won’t be able to fully enrol on your course.
Your course start dates are on your offer letter and published in your course induction information. You can get information and advice on how to set up an instalment arrangement from our Finance Office webpages.
If you’re an international (non-EEA) student, you’ll need to make an advanced payment (deposit) of £3,000, which we will deduct from your tuition fee.
