How can I pay my fee invoice?
Please visit methods of payment for details on how to make your payment. There you will find details on how to make a payment by credit/debit card online, UK bank transfer or international bank transfer.

I am being sponsored for my fees
If you have received this email reminding you to pay a Tuition Fee, but you believe that you are being sponsored and that the invoice should have been sent to a third party, we kindly ask that you provide a copy of your letter of sponsorship, on their headed paper, confirming the funding of your fees for the related academic year.

Please email a copy of the sponsorship letter to the Record Centre:
  • If you are on a course within the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care, please email the Nightingale Student Hub
  • If you are on a course within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, please email the Education Support Team
  • For all other courses – please email Registry Services
More information about when and how to provide evidence of third party sponsorship please visit Are your tuition fees funded by a sponsor?

If you’re unsure whether you count as ‘sponsored’ please read our article Am I considered sponsored or self-funded for my fees?

I am receiving a postgraduate masters or doctoral loan; what should I do next?
If you have secured either a postgraduate masters or doctoral loan and will be using this to pay your Tuition Fees, then you will need to arrange for Credit Control to re-schedule your Fee Invoice into three instalments.

For guidance on what information you need to provide to Credit Control to set this up, please visit Postgraduate Masters and Doctoral Loans.

Please send a copy of your loan notification schedule document from the Student Loans Company (SLC) to the Credit Control team for your fee invoice to be re-scheduled. Once processed, you will be sent an email to advise you of the revised fee due dates and amounts

I have not received my tuition fee invoice yet
Invoices are raised for current students who have completed the full enrolment process (Enrolment task and the Confirmation of Enrolment task in student records). 
Some invoices are delayed when the record is on hold status where we are aware of a pending Change of Registration application (withdrawal, interruption or transfer) and will be generated and sent to you where appropriate, once this process has been completed.
