Paying your tuition fees

The tuition fee for your course (after deduction of any discounts or University of Leicester Scholarships you have been awarded) will be stated in the offer letter sent to you by the University.

If you are getting a tuition fee loan to pay your fees (UK and EU students only), you will not have to make arrangements to pay. This will be done automatically for you.

If you are not getting a tuition fee loan, in order to register as a student you must either:

  • pay, or make arrangements to pay, your tuition fees before the academic year begins. This can be in full or in two equal instalments. The first instalment is due before the start of the academic year and the second is due three months after the start of your academic year.
  • Or, confirm that a sponsor is paying your fees on your behalf.

You can pay your fees online using a credit or debit card, by bank transfer or bankers draft (made payable to the University of Leicester) or in a number of other ways. Details of all payment methods and the time it takes for these methods to be received by the University can be found on our methods of payment page.

If you are an international student (non-EU), paying a deposit may support your visa application as it will show commitment to your studies, however a tuition fee deposit is not compulsory at the University of Leicester. Any tuition fee deposit that you pay will be offset against your total tuition fee.

Your next step is registering with the University.
