Payments to students

Postgraduate Maintenance Payments

All payments of stipends to Postgraduate students will be paid by BACS to your nominated UK bank account. Payments are made by the Student Finance Office and are dependent on:

  • Us having an instruction from your Department or the Graduate School for the payment
  • You having enrolled as a student via the online enrolment system
  • You uploading your UK bank account details

In order to set up your bank details you should log in to the Student Records system and then navigate to the Finance page (My student records; My data; Finance). Click in the container that is headed "Collecting bank details for payments to student" and follow the instructions given.

Payments are only made to fully registered students and are made in advance on a monthly basis. Payments will generally be made by the first day of the academic year and by the 1st of the month in which they are due thereafter. During October, additional payment runs will be made to ensure that students receive their funds as quickly as possible.

Students who withdraw after an advance payment has been made will be asked to repay to the University any funds no longer due as a consequence of their withdrawal.

If you have any queries regarding your payments, please see our frequently asked questions, or email pgscholarships at warwick dot ac dot uk, quoting your University ID number.
