Planning your finances
If you are required to pay a tuition fee deposit, this will be clearly stated in the letter we send offering you a place at Birmingham City University.
Tuition fee payment options
Tuition fees are payable for each year of your course and are due on or before enrolment. We offer four payment options:
Payment in full
If you pay your fees in full before or at enrolment you will qualify for our £300 prompt payment discount.
This discount applies to the amount owed after any scholarships or bursaries are deducted from your tuition fee.
Pay in two instalments
When paying in two instalments, 50 per cent is due on enrolment and an invoice is issued for the balance. If you join a course in September the balance is due by 31 January, or 30 April if you begin your studies in January.
Payment by instalments using direct debit
- To use this payment method, you or the person paying your fees must have a UK bank account.
- You should pay the initial amount by banker’s draft, cheque or credit card at enrolment, and then complete a direct debit form.
Payment by a sponsor
If your tuition fees are being paid by a sponsor you will need an original letter on headed paper confirming the amount they are paying.
You need to bring your sponsorship letter to enrolment
It must include:
- your name
- university application number
- course title
- invoice address
