Please be aware that any scholarships or bursaries you may have been awarded will reduce the overall fee charge

As an example, if your fees charged for the year are £16,000.00 and you've been awarded a scholarship of £3,000.00,  making your payable amount £13,000, instalments are set as  50%, 25% and 25% shown below:

1st instalment £6,500 (minus any deposit received)

2nd instalment £3,250.00

No other instalment options are available, overpayments will count towards the next instalment.



Convera usually processes transfers to Swansea University within 3 working days.  However, please note that occasionally it may take longer.  When making payments, please ensure that transfers are made in good time so that they clear before the relevant deposit or tuition fee deadlines.  Please also note that payments from Nigeria may take significantly longer.
