Fees and scholarships for international students

Jais, from India
Early payment discounts for annual tuition fees for the September 2014 intake

If you are an international student and you are paying your annual tuition fees in full, our University will offer you an early payment discount.

The discount is £400 and is applicable to all international students (undergraduate, postgraduate and postgraduate research). To qualify for this discount, your full tuition fees must have cleared in our University's bank account by 17:00 on Friday 12 September 2014 - or in the case of postgraduate research students by 17:00 on:
  • 3 October 2014 for students registering by 17 October 2014
  • 31 October 2014 for students registering by 18 November 2014
If you are taking advantage of the discount, you must pay your full tuition fees minus your International Merit Scholarship (if applicable) and the £400 early payment discount.

Please be aware of bank charges and local conversion rates when making payment. Bank transfers can take up to five working days for our finance office to process. You should also take into account the processing time of your local bank.

Please note this discount is not applicable to pre-sessional or EFL students.

In some countries we offer a laptop alternative. Awards are made on the basis of academic merit and level of competence in English language. Once you apply for a course at Anglia Ruskin you will be automatically considered for a scholarship, and details of any award given will be included in your offer letter.
