What date should I pay my fee by? 

University policy is that tuition fees are paid in full upon enrolment, but we do make provision for students who are unable to pay the full amount at once. This depends on the start date of your programme.

Undergraduate students and postgraduate students not in receipt of the postgraduate loan

If it is not possible for you to pay in full on enrolment, you may choose to pay tuition fees by two instalments rather than by a single payment. Payment deadlines depend on the start date of your programme:

For those programmes commencing between September and December, at least 50 per cent should be paid by 28 September 2018 or on the date you enrol, whichever is later. Any remaining fees should be paid by no later than 11 January 2019.

For those programmes commencing between January and March, at least 50 per cent should be paid by 11 January 2019 or on the date you enrol, whichever is later. Any remaining fees should be paid by no later than 19 April 2019.

For those programmes commencing between April and July, at least 50 per cent should be paid by 19 April 2019 or on the date you enrol, whichever is later. Any remaining fees should be paid by no later than 26 July 2019.

Postgraduate students in receipt of the postgraduate loan

If it is not possible for you to pay in full on enrolment, you may choose to pay tuition fees by three instalments rather than by a single payment. Payment deadlines will be aligned to the funding payment dates from Student Finance England (SFE).

For those programmes commencing between January and March, 33 per cent to be paid by 1 February 2019, 33 per cent to be paid by 26 April 2019 and the remaining 34 per cent to be paid by the 26 July 2019.

For those commencing between April and July, 33 per cent to be paid by 26 April 2019, 33 per cent to be paid by 30 August 2019 and the remaining 34 per cent to be paid by 29 November 2019.

Advice for students studying professional development modules

You should receive a confirmation letter from the Professional Development Unit detailing the cost of your module(s). If you are paying the tuition fee yourself, please ensure it is paid before the module start date.

If an organisation is paying your fees, please ensure that the sponsorship form, sent to you with your application form, is fully completed and returned to the Professional Development Unit. An invoice will not be sent to your sponsor until this form is received. If your sponsoring organisation is a Health Trust, in order for us to invoice them you will need to provide the PO (Purchase Order) number as assigned by your Health Trust on the sponsor form. Unless your fully completed sponsor form is returned before the module starts you will be considered to be self-paying and required to pay the fee in full at that point. A refund to you can be subsequently arranged if your sponsor pays us later.
