Confirm and Pay

Confirm your place and pay your deposit

Once you have firmly accepted your offer to study with us, you will need to pay a tuition fee deposit of £2,500. This is partial payment of your tuition fees. We need this before we can issue your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number, which you need when you apply for your UK student visa.

You can pay your deposit by bank transfer, UnionPay, Alipay or Tenpay using our secure bank transfer portal, which allows you to pay in your local currency with a favourable exchange rate compared to most banks and with no transaction charges.

Please note - if you use the bank transfer portal, you will need to enter your:

  • UCA student number
  • contact details
  • chosen currency, and
  • the amount you want to pay

You will receive a quote for the amount in your local currency; this quote is guaranteed for 72 hours, during which time you should instruct your bank to transfer funds using the instructions you receive.

You can also pay your deposit by credit or debit card using our online payment system. Please find full instructions on using the online payment system here.

When we receive your deposit we will confirm this by email, and we will let you know which immigration-related documents we require from you in order to issue your CAS. Take a look at our visa and immigration page for more information on the visa application process.

Remember, if you want to pay the discounted tuition fee, you will need to pay your tuition fees in full before the published start date of the course. Alternatively, you can pay your fees in instalments. You will need to pay 50% of your tuition fees before your course starts and the remaining balance within six months. You can arrange an instalment plan with our Finance department before your course starts.
