Pay your fees

How and when to pay your tuition fees as a distance learner. Select the options applicable to you.

  • Self-funded students

    If you are self-financing your studies, you will settle your fees in full, or pay the first instalment within seven days of the start date of your programme. Visit the online payments page.

  • Sponsored students
  • Paying your fees in advance

    You can make online payments or you can transfer funds directly into the University’s bank account. You need to contact your own bank to do this for you. The details of our bank are:

    Barclays Bank
    Barclays Business Centre
    Manchester City Office
    PO Box 357
    51 Mosley Street
    M60 2AU







    The University does not provide tuition fee invoices to applicants, therefore when transferring money from your bank to our bank account, please include your Lancaster University ID number and your full name.

  • Payment by instalments

    If you are a self-financing student you can pay your tuition fees in two equal instalments - please log into your online account to check individual due dates. Each instalment is the equivalent of half of the full annual fee. Please note any student who does not pay the first instalment within seven days of online course registration will forfeit the right to pay by instalments and will then be required to pay the annual fee in full.

  • Tuition fee invoices

    Student fee invoices are made available on the Student Portal after the start of term. Students will be sent an email when their invoice is ready to be viewed/printed. Sponsor invoices are issued on paper.
