Paying your fees can be a stressful part of starting up at university, so that's why we're here to help you out every step of the way. Open the sections below to get a full description of how to follow each step of the process.
International students are required to pay a deposit of £4,000 for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses. The exact amount you’ll be required to pay will be listed as a condition in your offer letter, and you’ll not be issued a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) until the deposit has been received by our University.
Please note the deposit is non-refundable unless your visa is refused.
Or alternatively you can provide a letter of sponsorship/financial guarantee. This must be on letterhead paper and include the following information:
After you have paid your deposit, you can decide to pay the rest of your fees in full, or you can follow our University's instalment payment plan. Early payment discounts are available for new students, if you choose to pay your full annual tuition fee.
Instalment plans for new international students
If you choose to pay your tuition fees in instalments, you’ll pay a £4,000 deposit, then instalments as follows:
All tuition fee instalments are deducted for payment on the 15th of the appropriate month.
Note that if you don't pay your fees by the agreed dates, you may not be able to continue your studies or graduate.
If you're paying your fees before the start of your course, or by instalments: please use our University's web payments system. If you're not able to pay online, please contact your Admissions Officer who can give you advice about paying by bank to bank transfer, cheque, or bankers draft.
If you're paying your fees once you arrive at our University: you can make a payment in person at our Finance office (we’ve got offices in Cambridge and Chelmsford) using cash, debit or credit card, cheque, or bankers draft.
