If you receive a payment request please ensure you are confident it has been sent by the University. The following information can help you check any request you received:

  • Cash payments are not accepted by the University for tuition or accommodation fees and cash deposited into our bank account will also not be accepted.
  • Do not allow others to make payments for you and do not pay your fees to anyone other than the University directly, including Agents.
  • You may risk losing your money if it does not reach the University and you will still be required to pay by the payment due date.
  • You will be held accountable for any fraudulent, attempted or received payments, made to the University even if you did not make the payment directly.
  • You will be held accountable for any falsified payment documents sent from yourself, regardless of who made the payment.
  • Do not pay anyone who is offering a discount on your tuition fees. You may risk losing your money if it does not reach the University.
