University departments can arrange to pay fees and maintenance costs for a student from a department account code. These payments are usually made to research students and can either be funded from a departmental account or from an external sponsor who has previously paid an award to the University for us to administer.

Payments can be arranged for:

1. Maintenance and Tuition Fees

  • Departments should arrange the scholarship/maintenance payment to the student by completing the internal funding form for Maintenance and Tuition Fees
  • To qualify for scholarship/maintenance payments students must be in Fully Registered status (FR) with the University
  • Students must provide their bank account details via their MUSE account
  • The first payment will be made within five working days of confirmation of a student’s FR status and receipt of a student's bank details
  • Payments are made to the student’s bank account on a quarterly basis:
    • 1 October payment (or as soon as FR status obtained) covers October, November and December
    • 1 January payment covers January, February and March
    • 1 April payment covers April, May and June
    • 1 July payment covers July, August and September
  • Cross-sessional students (not starting in October) will have different payment dates as shown below:
