How to pay your course fees

Some useful information on how to fund and pay for your fees

 

We know that getting your course funding arranged in time can be a bit of a chore, so we want you to know that we can help. Your current funding situation will fit into one of the following two groups:

You’re getting funding from Student Finance England/Wales/Northern Ireland (Only UK or EU students)

If your tuition fees are being paid by Student Finance, you must make your application prior to pre-enrolment. Doing this quickly should mean that there is no delay to your student loan being paid.

If you haven’t yet applied for your funding, you should do so immediately as you will not be able to pre-enrol without making a student finance application. To apply, visit gov.uk/apply-online-for-student-finance

When completing pre-enrolment you will be required to provide:

  • Date of application
  • Customer Reference Number (CRM)
  • Student Support Number (SSN)

You’re self-financing

If you’re paying for your fees yourself you’ll need to do this before you can enrol. Details of methods and terms of payment are available on the London Met website: londonmet.ac.uk/payingfees

For further information on your entitlement to funding according to your individual circumstances, please see our range of information online: londonmet.ac.uk/funding

Postgraduate Loan

If you plan to study a postgraduate master’s course this September you may be able to get a Postgraduate Loan of up to £10,906. The loan, which is not means tested, can be used towards course fees and living costs.

As the loan is paid directly into your bank account you need to provide evidence of your approved loan and pay a deposit of £500 or you will be considered as a self-financing student.
