Apply for a Direct Debit online or email

The Direct Debit must be drawn on a UK bank or building society. Failure to pay instalments on the due dates will result in your entitlement to pay by instalments being withdrawn and the balance of fees outstanding becoming due immediately.

This method of payment is only available to students if your course lasts at least a year, and where the tuition fee you are expected to pay personally exceeds £200.

If you have opted to pay by Direct Debit and you change the number of modules you are studying, your Direct Debit mandate will not be automatically amended. Please contact the Finance Department/ Income Section by e mail on
