Application Fee

Once you have submitted your application form you will be invited to pay the application assessment fee through the online payment facility.

This payment is processed via Global Payments and you will receive a confirmation email from them when a successful payment has been made. Global Payments can process your payment using Visa, American Express, Mastercard, Delta, Visa Electron, Solo, JCB, Switch (Maestro).

If you are unable to find your country on the list of countries when making the payment, please choose 'Other'. This will enable your payment to go through.

If your card has been issued outside of the UK and your payment is declined, please contact your bank or credit card company in the first instance. They may have blocked the payment thinking it unusual for you to use your card outside of your home country.

If you are not able to pay by one of these methods above, either save your application here and come back when you have your card details with you, or submit your application and then log back in when you have a credit/debit card available to use. You should see a link to the Global Payments payment page from the Application Status screen. Please note that while payment is pending your application will be stored for 20 working days only.

Alternatively you may send a cheque, banker's draft or postal order payable to the University of Warwick by post to the Postgraduate Admissions Service.

Please note: All cheques/banker's drafts must be made out in GB Pounds Sterling (£) and have a UK clearing bank marked on the front of the cheque. Please clearly write your full name, date of birth, programme applied for and 13 digit application receipt number on the reverse.

If you experience difficulties making your payment online and you have contacted your bank or credit card company to authorise an overseas payment (if applicable), please contact the Postgraduate Admissions Service at

If you have paid the application assessment fee more than once in error, you should have received an automated payment receipt email, containing a payment transaction reference number, for each payment you have made. Please forward all of your payment transaction reference numbers in one email to and we will look into the matter for you, before advising you of whether you are due a refund. Alternatively, if you have not received any payment receipt emails, please forward a scanned copy of your bank or card statement, clearly showing the payments, together with the payment date and full name as it appears on the card made to use the payments.
