Funding arrangements

Financial Declaration

All students must complete the Financial Declaration, online, in advance.

You will be sent a link asking you to complete your pre-registration actions and one of these actions is to complete the Financial Declaration.

Home Undergraduates who choose not to apply for a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan/grant must, first of all, complete the online Financial Declaration and then you must complete the Fee Status Assessment form.

If you are not applying for a funding package, check the UKCISA guidance on fee status carefully to make sure you have understood the rules on fee status correctly.

Are you paying your fees through Student Finance?

Applying for a tuition fee loan

If you wish to receive a tuition fee loan and you are eligible then you should have already applied for a funding package from Student Finance.

Further information about applying for a tuition fee loan, maintenance loan/grant and to download application forms or to apply online is available at:

Confirmation and payment of your tuition fee loan to the University

The Tuition Fee Loan is paid directly to the University so you do not have to pay tuition fees.

If you have applied in good time and by the deadline, the University should receive confirmation that you will be receiving a tuition fee loan and maintenance grant/loan, directly from the Student Loans Company (SLC) in advance of your arrival at the University.

Maintenance loan/grant payment to you

If you are applying for a maintenance loan (repayable) or grant (non-repayable) this will be paid directly into your bank account approximately five days after your course start date. The University will inform SLC that you are 'in attendance' and had your identification confirmed in person after you have registered; this will prompt the first payment.

What if I have not received written confirmation of my Tuition Fee Loan when I register?

If you have not received confirmation of your funding package from Student Finance by the time you come to register, don't worry. The University will give you a period of Temporary Registration for up to six weeks while you wait for the information from Student Finance to arrive.

NHS-funded courses

If you are being funded by a student loan, bursary, or sponsored, it is your responsibility to ensure your tuition fees are paid. If the University does not receive payment you will become liable for the tuition fee.

Sponsored students

If you are being sponsored by an external organisation, our Sponsored students page will help you to find out about what you need to do.

How to pay your tuition fee: Self-funded students

Read this if you are paying your own tuition fees

You will be sent a link asking you to complete your pre-registration actions. This is where you pay your tuition fee online, in advance of the course start date. You must complete the Financial Declaration first (and Fee Status Assessment form if not applying to Student Finance for a Maintenance Loan).

Paying your tuition fee is an integral part of registration at the University. We advise you to arrange your fee payments in advance of your arrival. If you are unable to do this then you must arrange to pay tuition fees before you attend Registration.

Once you have completed your online Financial Declaration (see above) you can arrange payment according to the Payment Plans set out below.

Invoices: Be aware that, unlike some other universities, we do not defer the collection of tuition fees until later in the year and we do not issue invoices to self-financed students.

Payment plans: Self-funded students

Payment Plan 1: Payment in full

The following are acceptable payment methods to pay in full:

  • Make a payment by card, eg Mastercard, Visa or American Express

Payment Plan 2: Payment in two instalments

If your share of the tuition fee is £1,000 or more and you are in attendance for the full academic year, you can pay your tuition fee in two instalments. Example: you will pay 50% on 1 October and 50% on 1 February.

The following are acceptable payment methods to pay in two instalments:

  • Direct Debit. This must be a UK current bank account. To allow your bank time to set this up, this payment option is only available until two weeks before the first instalment date.
  • Make a payment by card, eg Mastercard, Visa or American Express

Additional information


You can find information about which bursaries may be available on our undergraduate fees and funding pages.

Will the University send a receipt for any payment made in advance?

Due to the high volume of payments received at this time of year, the University does not generally issue receipts; however, if you pay your fees online, in advance of your arrival, the card/account holder will receive an email confirming payment.

What happens if I default on my payment?

If a payment does not reach the University as required and you have not made contact in advance:

  • Your registration will be subject to immediate review and could be cancelled.
  • Your computer facilities could be cancelled.
  • Your registration may only be renewed once you have paid all of your fee or have made a satisfactory arrangement to pay your fee.

Be advised that the University reserves the right to insist that payment is made in full at the start of each year of study. It is therefore in your interests to honour all payments if you wish to continue to pay in instalments in future years.

What if I decide to leave my course or take a break from studying?
