Recurring Card Payment
How to pay your tuition fees by recurring card payment.
This payment option is available if your balance is £100 or more. The Recurring Card Payment plan (RCP) is normally set up during online enrolment with a credit/debit card.
Based on your domicile, please select the appropriate option below to find out more.
Self-Financing UK/EU Students
Tuition fees paid by RCP are collected in up to 10 equal instalments with the first instalment due at registration. Subsequent payments are due to lift on the first day of each month, thereafter, until 1st June.
10 instalment payment terms are only available where graduation from a programme is 10 or more months after registration. Students may not be permitted to graduate in the event of unpaid tuition fees.
Self-Financing Overseas Students
Tuition fees must be paid in full at registration. If you are unable to pay your tuition fees in full, a minimum deposit of £2,000 must be paid and an instalment plan set up for the balance at registration.
Tuition fees payable by the RCP instalment plan are collected in up to five equal consecutive monthly instalments from 1 December to 1 April for students registering in Semester 1 and from 1 February until 1 June for students registering in Semester 2.
Self-Financing Overseas Distance Learning Students
A 20% non-refundable deposit must be paid and an instalment plan set up for the balance at registration. (New Students only with an intake year of 2019/20 who withdraw within 14 calendar days of completing registration, will have tuition fees paid for that academic year refunded). The balance of tuition fees payable by the RCP instalment plan is collected in up to 5 equal consecutive monthly instalments from 1 December until 1 April for students registering in Semester 1 and from 1 February until 1 June for students registering in Semester 2.
