Paying Your Fees

Every student’s tuition fee is calculated based on their study profile. Once a profile is created it will generate an associated fee. There are a range of options available thereafter for payment of fees.

Tuition Fees Loans

UK students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to fund their University tuition fees, as several courses are available for support. It is the responsibility of each individual student to apply for funding and in doing so find out if their course is eligible, and if they are eligible for funding from Student Finance.

Students who have previously had support from Student Finance or have a previous award may have their funding affected for new applications. If a Student Finance Loan is not available, then students will be expected to pay fees directly to UCLan whilst studying. Loans are available at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level.

SELF FUNDING STUDY

If you are paying your own fees there are a range of payment options available to you depending on the type of study, you are undertaking and your nationality.

It is important that you keep your contact information such as address, phone number and email address current through MYUCLan.

LETTERS OF SPONSORSHIP

If you have an employer/sponsor who is paying your tuition fees you will need to provide via email a letter from your employer/sponsor detailing where the invoice should go. This letter should include your University Registration Number, which typically starts 'G20…'

Please ensure any purchase order number or other relevant reference is included. The sponsor will be expected to make payment upon receipt of invoice.

Sponsor letters should be emailed to the Student Fees and Funding Team. If a sponsor letter is not received before billing begins students will receive an invoice directly in the first instance.
