PG Taught Payment Dates for 2023/24


PG Taught Payment Dates For 2022/23



What payment terms are offered?

Tuition fees are payable in full at enrolment, but the University is aware of the financial burden that may arise from the payment of tuition fees so will permit students to pay in 3 instalments (33%, 33% and 34%).

Please be aware that any scholarships or bursaries you may have been awarded do not count towards payment of your first instalment. As an example, if your fees are £5,500 and you've been awarded a scholarship of £1,000, the scholarship amount is deducted then you would be left with 3 instalments of 33%, 33% and 34%.

If you choose to take up the instalment option, you will be asked to submit a valid direct debit mandate at or before enrolment. We will then make arrangements to collect the fees in 3 instalments on the following dates, depending on your course type and course start date.


Postgraduate Research


Payment arrangements for Research Postgraduate students differ slightly from Taught Postgraduates. The main reason is that Taught Postgraduate Programmes broadly follow the structure of the Undergraduate academic year, whereas Research students enrol on a rolling 12 month cycle.
