Payment

Coventry University's flexible payment schemes

If you don't want to borrow your tuition fees from the UK Government then we can help you spread the cost. You can pay your fees directly to the University without applying for a Government student loan. We can offer one of the following payment schemes to help you, your parents or guardians manage the cost:

  • Full Payment Scheme;
  • Two Instalment Scheme;
  • Eight Instalment Scheme.

Please refer to our full Tuition Fee Terms and Conditions here.


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. 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.

A Fee Authorisation Form can be obtained from the University's Finance Income team, or downloaded as a pdf. Once you have enrolled, your sponsor will automatically be invoiced.

Fee Authorisation Forms are only to 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.

In all cases the document must be signed by an appropriate signatory.

The completed form can be scanned and emailed to the Income Team at incenq.fin@coventry.ac.uk. Alternatively, you can submit the completed form to the Income Team in person at the Student Centre or by post to the address below:

Coventry University

Is there any support for part-time undergraduate students?

Providing you are studying at least 25% of the full-time equivalent course per year, you can opt into one of the Flexible Payment Schemes in the same way as a full-time student. If you are enrolled for less than 25% of the full-time equivalent course per year then you must pay in full on enrolment. Please note that there are no early payment discounts or alumni discounts for students embarking on a part-time route.

Government Funding

The Government's 2017 Funding Scheme

  • Tuition fee support (tuition fee loan);
  • Living cost (maintenance loan).

How will the new Government Tuition Fee Loans work?

UK and EU students can take out a tuition fee loan from the UK Government to pay their fees. The key information about these loans is:

  • you don't have to pay for your course tuition fees while you are studying;
  • your tuition fees are paid directly to the university if you take out a loan;
  • you can get a loan to cover the full cost of your tuition fees and you only start to pay it back when you are earning over £25,000 a year.

UK students studying full-time can take out a maintenance loan from the UK government to help with costs such as food, accommodation and travel. Further information can be found at GOV.UK.

How will I pay back my loan?

If you take out a loan for tuition fees and/or for living costs from the UK Government then your loan repayments will be deducted from your salary, normally through the UK tax system. Further details on repayment can be found on the Student Loans Company website


Is there any support for students with dependants?

The Government provides extra financial help to full-time students with child or adult dependents:

  • Adult Dependents’ Grant;
  • Childcare Grant;
  • Parents' Learning Allowance.

Further information can be found at GOV.UK.


Is there any support for students with disabilities/special needs or learning difficulties?

You may be entitled to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA). This allowance is not dependent on your income and is not repayable. The DSA is intended to help with the extra costs of study that are a direct result of your disability. Items such as specialist equipment, non-medical helper, travel costs and other general costs can be included depending on your needs.Further details can be obtained from GOV.UK. 


Self-financing students

Students paying their own tuition fees will be issued with an invoice during the enrolment process. You will have to settle this invoice immediately or sign up to paying by instalments as detailed in the payment section.

Social work students: May qualify for a Social Work Bursary if eligible from years 2 and 3 of study. Students can apply for tuition fee and living costs support in the same way. 

NHS students: From 2017 entry NHS students will be funded in the same way through Government Loans. Additional support is also available to students with other circumstances

Coventry University Scholarships: Coventry University Scholarships are awarded to recognise truly exceptional sports achievement and academic excellence. Further details can be found on our Scholarships webpage.


ELC Scheme

The MOD's Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELC) provides financial support for members of the Armed Forces looking to pursue Higher Education. For more information, please visit their website.
