How to pay

Tuition fees are payable in advance or at the start of each academic year. 

Payments can be made by bank transfer, banker’s draft, cheque, telephone or direct debit (online or in person). If you have been awarded a scholarship, this will be deducted from your first year fee, unless specified otherwise in your offer letter.

Self-funding students can either pay the annual tuition fee at the start of each year or can opt to pay in instalments with the following payment schedule:

  • 50% of tuition fees due on the first day of your academic year
  • 25% of tuition fees due on first day of month 4 of your academic year
  • 25% of tuition fees due on first day of month 7 of your academic year

* Please note that invoices will state the academic year (which runs September to August) your start date falls in rather than the actual year of your study. Only successful participants on the full MSc will be eligible to attend the graduation ceremony.


We have scholarship funding available to candidates admitted onto the full MSc. The deadline for scholarship application is set as the first application deadline. 

We will still consider scholarship applications received after this date, but would strongly encourage an early application.  Scholarships are awarded on an ongoing basis, so candidates who apply early will have a stronger chance of being successful.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship please indicate through the drop down box on your application form and you will be automatically considered. 


In partnership with the Bank of England, we are delighted to announce up to eight bursary awards available, covering 50% of the programme fees, for qualifying candidates from central banks in developing and emerging markets countries starting in October 2021. The deadline to apply is midnight (GMT) on Friday 28 May 2021. For more information including how to apply click here.
