How to pay your fees
Paying your tuition fees can seem like a daunting process, but we aim to make it as stress-free and simple as possible. If you have to pay fees it is possible to pay either in instalments, or in full however, all students have to pay half of their tuition fees on their first day.
If you are sponsored or receive a student loan
If you are sponsored, or receive a student loan, your fees will be paid directly by your sponsorship organisation or the Student Loans Company. You will need to show evidence of your loan or sponsorship during enrolment.
Overseas students usually have to pay a deposit equal to 50% of the tuition fees for the first year. This must be paid before starting the course, however students who need to apply for a Tier 4 visa will be required to pay this deposit before a CAS can be assigned. Those who win full scholarships do not pay a deposit.
Paying in full
If you pay in full at or before enrolment you may be entitled to a 5% discount. You can pay by:
- Credit/debit card - for security reasons, card details should never be sent through the post or by end-user messaging (email, text, chat, etc)
- Cash - cash payments should always be made in person at our Cashiers Office, located in the Admin Block at Holloway.
Important things to note:
We are unable to accept cash payments in excess of £2,500 (this includes related payments).
Please avoid carrying large sums of cash, wherever possible. Cash payments should never be sent through the post.
Please do not bring cash to an enrolment session.
- Bank transfer
- Cheque - most payments can be made by GBP cheque or bankers draft.
Cheques/drafts should always be made payable to London Metropolitan University and the student name and ID number (or customer name and account number) should be noted on the reverse of the cheque/draft along with the type of payment (e.g. tuition fees etc.). Unfortunately, we cannot accept post-dated cheques.
- Direct debit
Paying in instalments
Two equal instalments: 50% on enrolment and 50% by 31 December (31 May for February starters)
Four equal instalments: 50% on enrolment, then three equal payments on the last working day of the month commencing in October (March for February starters)
If you are late with an instalment you may have to pay an extra charge of £100.
Please note that neither the 5% early payment discount nor the paying in instalments options are applicable to Study Abroad and Study in London Programme students.
The University is unable to accept payments originating from the following list of countries sanctioned by either the UK or the US. Students wishing to pay their fees from a non-uk bank account will be asked to confirm the source of funding. Currently the sanctioned countries are:
