Direct Debit

A direct debit can be set up with the University to:

  • Pay Accommodation fees on a termly basis.
  • Pay tuition fees by the standard University instalment schedule throughout the academic year.
  • If you opt to pay both tuition and accommodation fees by direct debit, two instructions will be registered with your bank/building society, and the two amounts will be taken from your account separately. Full details of the Direct Debit process can be found on the Paying By Direct Debit page.
  • Direct debits can only be processed from UK bank accounts.

Full details of the Direct Debit process can be found on the Paying by Direct Debit page.

Please note: Direct Debit payment due dates are later than the due dates for all other methods of payment because we are legally obliged to give notice that payments will be deducted from bank accounts.


UK Credit/Debit Cards

Payments by locally issued Credit or Debit cards such as Mastercard, Visa, or Maestro cards can be made using the Automated Telephone Payment Line: please phone 0330 088 3627 (or +44 330 088 3627 from outside the UK) to make a direct payment to your account. You will need to quote your University ID number, your date of birth, and how much you are paying.

Within the online Flywire payment portal, you are able to use a wide variety of credit and debit cards tailored to your country of domicile. If you wish to use a card in a currency that is not you home currency, please enter the country of the currency card you are using ( ie for GBP cards enter United Kingdom) and Flywire will then provide options to pay in that currency.

Cash payments and deposits are not accepted

The University does not accept cash payments in any currencies, and will not facilitate deposits of cash by issuing University bank account paying in slips to students. Any such requests will be refused.

Students carrying large amounts of UK or foreign currency notes should make arrangements to pay them into their own UK based bank account at the earliest opportunity. Please do not put your money at risk by dealing with any agents or intermediaries, who may offer seemingly attractive rates of exchange, but cannot be guaranteed to be secure or legitimate.

To avoid any risks of money laundering, no refunds will be made against cash payments previously paid into the University bank account.

For advice on safe card payments see The City of London Police Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit (DCPCU).

Bank Transfers / Wire Payments

We no longer support direct bank transfers from students into the University’s bank account, as we consider the arrangements with Flywire offer greater student flexibility and security, as well as increased efficiency for the University.

Bank transfers can however be made from your local accounts or other currency accounts using the Flywire online portal. These transfers are paid into a local Flywire bank account to reduce costs, and are then transferred by Flywire to the University. The stages of the process are reported to the payor via email or text message, providing increased confidence that the payment is securely on its way to us.

The Flywire bank transfer details, once generated in the portal, can be shared with parents or others making payments on students' behalf.

Bank details will be provided to corporate sponsors via our sponsor invoices.
