To make studying more cost effective, some students choose to study part-time and plan their course around their personal or working lives. If you choose to do this you will typically earn 60 credits per year.
As an example of the way tuition fees work, please see our variety of payment breakdowns below. The fees were for our UK/EU students undertaking taught postgraduate degrees, which can be found on our lists of courses in September and courses in January.
How do I pay for my course?
Everyone is different, so we like to give you options to make as life as easy for you as possible. At the time that you enrol you will be asked how you would like to pay your fees and will need to commit to this method.
Flexible Payment Schemes
Our most popular choices of payment are through our Flexible Payment Schemes. These schemes give you the opportunity to pay in three different ways:
- Full Payment Scheme - Pay your fees in one lump sum at enrolment.
- Two Instalment Scheme - Pay your fees in two equal instalments, one at enrolment and one in December.
- Eight Instalment Scheme - Pay your fees in eight monthly instalments via direct debit or card transactions from October to May.
For further information on these schemes, as well as support for part-time students, please visit our Flexible Payment Schemes web page.
What if I am being sponsored?
If your fees are to be paid in part or fully by a sponsor (such as your employer), you will be required to provide at enrolment a letter or Fee Authorisation Form. In the case of a letter from your sponsor, this should be supplied on company headed paper and state the amount of support you will be receiving and the academic year it relates to. After your enrolment your sponsor will be automatically invoiced.
The Fee Authorisation Form can be picked up from the University's Finance Income team or downloaded as a PDF. This form should only be completed by registered organisations and companies, and should not be used if your fees are to be paid by family members, friends, etc., unless you are officially listed as an employee of theirs.
The completed form can be scanned and emailed to the Income Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can submit the completed form to the Income Team in person at the Student Centre or by post to the address below:
