Students starting your studies in September
Fees must be paid by 3 October 2016. We strongly recommend that UK students pay fees online via our secure web payments facility.
EU and international students should pay via our international bank transfer system which allows you to pay in your local currency from your home bank account.
We offer a 1% discount to all students paying all of their contribution to the fee by midnight on Monday 3 October 2016. You can also choose to pay your fees in two equal installments at the start of each semester: 3 October 2016 and 9 January 2017.
If you are a UK/EU student and are paying your fees without a tuition fee loan, or if you are an international student, you must pay your fees in advance.
If you are a self-funded postgraduate student, you will need to pay annual tuition fees to the University for your taught or research programme. Find out more about postgraduate programme fees. If you are not sure which fees you should be paying, please check your fee status.
If you have a sponsor
If a sponsor such as a research council, employer, or foreign embassy/government will be paying for all or part of your tuition fees, please fill in a copy of the fees sponsorship form and email it to email@example.com along with a copy of your official letter of sponsorship. Please note that if you fail to provide full sponsorship details by 3 October 2016, you will be held responsible for paying the full fee.
Students starting your studies at another time of year
Starting after October 2016
You will be charged pro-rata for the first year, and should pay within seven days of the start of your course to take advantage of the 1% discount. If you do not pay your fees in full and you are starting before 1 January 2017, you should pay 50% on enrolment and 50% on 2 January 2017. If you are starting after January 2017 you will need to pay your fees in full on enrolment.
Starting in February 2017
You should pay in full by 1 February 2017, taking advantage of the 1% discount, or you can pay 50% on 1 February and 50% on 2 May 2017. Your fees will be charged annually in February of each year.
Studying on a module-by-module basis
You will need to pay for each module before it begins.
If you have a sponsor
If a sponsor such as an employer or foreign embassy/government will be paying for all or part of your tuition fees, please fill in a copy of the fees sponsorship form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a copy of your official letter of sponsorship. Please note that if you fail to provide full sponsorship details by 3 October 2016, you will be held responsible for paying the full fee.
How to pay
You will need your student ID when paying your fee. You will have received this in email correspondence from the University admissions team in your welcome email.
Please note that the University does not accept cash payments for tuition or accommodation fees. Please therefore use one of the payment methods listed below.
This is the fastest and cheapest way for UK students to pay. International students should use our international bank transfer platform (see below).
If you haven't used the web payments system before, you will need to create a new user account, and set up a new password and security question of your choice. You will also need your student ID. You will receive an email with instructions on how to activate your account before you can make a payment. We recommend that use Internet Explorer to access the web payments system.
When you log in to the web payments system:
- You will see a page called 'Current Items'.
- On the Current Items page, you should see an invoice for your programme fees. If so, tick the 'Pay' box and click 'Pay invoice'.
- If it says 'You have no outstanding invoices' on the Current Items page, click 'Pay on account' in the top right hand of the screen and follow the instructions to make your payment.
We recommend bank/wire transfers. The University has partnered with Western Union Business Solutions to provide a quick and easy way to make your payment in your local currency. Please go to Western Union GlobalPay for Students and select the country the payment is to come from, the currency you wish to pay in and then complete the 4-step process. You will then receive an email with the payment instructions attached detailing exactly what you need to do to complete the payment.
You can pay via Union Pay or JCB either online or in person at the Student Services Centre or the Income Office on Highfield Campus, and the Income Office at Winchester School of Art.
