Pay your fees

Many students arrange for their fees to be financed by Student Finance. Postgraduate, international and self-funding students can also find guidance below. Students are also required to pay a small college fee.

Stay safe - avoiding phishing attacks and scams

We want all our students to be safe from phishing attacks and scams. So please be aware that Student Finance will never ask students to update their bank details or verify their account or personal details by email. Read our advice on avoiding phishing attacks and scams.
