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.
