Payment of fees - Home and EU students only

Not a Home or EU student? see How to Pay - International Students

How To Pay

The easiest way to pay your fees is by bank transfer directly into the appropriate designated bank account or by online card payment using the secure e-payment gateway.

We also offer a pay in person service at The Student Centre.

Bank Transfer

The bank details for transfer payment can be found on your invoice which is sent to your Coventry e-mail account following enrolment.

Online card payments

Once a student is enrolled you or anyone wishing to pay fees on your behalf can pay on our secure e-payment gateway.  All major credit and debit cards are accepted. You will need the student number and date of birth to complete data validation checks.

Phone payments

Due to high call volumes you should always try to pay online in the first instance. If you have any problem with the system please take screen shots and e-mail your query to the credit control team. If you need to make payment by card over the phone contact a member of the income team using the below details.

Self-financing students

Students paying their own tuition fees will be issued with an invoice during the enrolment process. You will have to pay this invoice in full within 14 days or sign up to an instalment payment plan.

Paying by instalments

Self-financing students are able to arrange to pay their fees in instalments.

Instalment payments can be set up to be taken by direct debit (from your standard UK bank account) or by recurring card payment (from a valid credit or debit card).

During the online enrolment process students will have the opportunity to enter into an instalment plan and will be asked to complete a direct debit mandate or recurring credit card payment form.

Please refer to the tuition fee policy document section 4 for further information.

Students who enrol at other stages of the academic year or are unable to give their details online should contact the Income Team to arrange payment by direct debit.

Please note that any student failing to keep to a direct debit/recurring credit card payment agreement will have their access to University facilities withdrawn.

Sponsored students

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. For more information and to download forms, please refer to our fee authorisation page.
