Applicants to some courses at the University of Warwick will be required to pay a tuition fee deposit. Deposits will typically be required for our most competitive programmes where places are limited and serve to confirm an applicants commitment to take a place. The deposit fee will be retained by the University and will contribute towards your tuition fee when you take your place on the course.
Details of deposit payments, for example, amounts and deadlines for payments, can be advised by your relevant academic department. Applicants required to pay a deposit will be advised of this in their offer letter.
Tuition fee deposits may be waived for applicants whose tuition fees are fully funded by a recognised third-party sponsor such as a research council, overseas government or charity.
Applicants who pay the tuition fee deposit and then change their mind will receive a refund only if they notify us of their decision within 14 days of paying the deposit. Otherwise, tuition fee deposits will only be refunded if an applicant fails to take their place because:
- They require a Tier 4 visa and have had their visa application refused or rejected
- They fail to meet the academic terms of their offer
- Of exceptional circumstances beyond their control. Applicants who feel this may apply to them should contact their department for further advice.
