This Online Payment Facility is for payments made by, or on behalf of Students. “Student/s” means student/s registered with the University.

Payments can be made by the approved credit or debit cards illustrated by the logos displayed on this Online Payment Facility.

All prices quoted are in GBP - UK pound Sterling. The University reserves the right to change the fees at any time.

Payments can only be accepted in GBP – UK pound Sterling. Any currency conversion costs or other charges or costs incurred by you in making the payment or in processing a refund shall be borne by you, and shall not be deductible from any fees due to the University.

Payments will be applied to the Student’s University account in accordance with the details submitted electronically. The University cannot accept liability for a payment not reaching the correct University account due to you quoting incorrect details.

The University cannot accept liability if payment is refused or declined by the credit/debit card supplier for any reason. If the card supplier declines payment the University is under no obligation to bring this fact to your attention. You should check with your bank/credit/debit card supplier that payment has been deducted from your account.

Payments are not collected by the University directly but by WorldPay (the “Service Provider”).

Once payment is received by the Service Provider in cleared funds, the Service Provider will contact the University to confirm the details of the successful payment made by you. On receipt of this confirmation, the University will confirm to the Student that the payment has been received and accepted by the University. In the event that the Student does not receive confirmation within fourteen (14) days of making the payment it is the responsibility of the Student to check with the University that the payment has been received and accepted.

The Student shall remain responsible for all fees until such time as confirmation is received from the University that full payment has been received and accepted, including any outstanding amounts owed to the University.

In the event that an overpayment is made in respect of any fee, the credit balance arising will be used to offset any debt or invoice on the Student’s account (whether arising from tuition, accommodation, or any other legitimate charge) in due date order.
