Deposit payment methods

If you are required to pay a deposit you will be advised of this in your offer.

You can pay online with a credit or debit card via the Online Applicant Portal - exact deposit amount only. This is the preferred payment method to be used. A receipt for the online payment will be available within five working days via the Online Applicant Portal.

We do not accept cash payments.

You should be mindful that when paying the tuition fee you should deduct the deposit from the total fee and only pay the remaining balance. For example: total tuition fee due is £20,000 and the deposit paid is £2,000 so this leaves a balance of £18,000 to pay on registration.

If you are unable to pay using a credit/debit card then the following payment methods may be used:

Payment by bank transfer
