Flexible payment

To help spread the cost of your studies, tuition fees can be paid back in monthly instalments while you learn.

Most of our full-time master's degrees are one year in duration. You can pay your fees up-front, in one lump sum, or in either five* or ten* equal monthly payments.

Our part-time master's degrees are typically studied over three years. You can pay each year's fees up-front or in five* or ten* equal monthly payments each year.

This flexibility allows you to spread the payment of your fees over each academic year.
