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:
* 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.
As part of the Bank of England and Department for International Development (DFID) partnership that supports technical co-operation, we are delighted to announce the availability of a small number of 100% tuition fee bursary awards to qualifying candidates from central banks in Low and Lower Middle Income Countries (LLMICs) and Fragile and Conflict-affected States (FCAS).
To be eligible for a bursary, candidates must complete the online application form for the MSc programme, be in receipt of an offer from WBS and be working in the central bank of a qualifying developing country.
