Student Policies

If you are a self-financing student, it is your responsibility to meet the cost of your tuition, so we recommend planning ahead for your studies, and budgeting effectively for both your tuition fee payment(s) and your living costs. You can find useful guidance to help you prepare on our Budgeting & Planning webpages.

In the event of non-payment, the University reserves the right to the following:

  • Non-payment will lead to the University withholding the issue of degree, diploma and course programme completion parchments and letters
  • Non-registration for continuation of programmes
  • Non-registration for end-of-semester examinations or withholding of examination results
  • Tuition fees remain the responsibility of the student until accounts are settled in full by their sponsor
  • Legal action which will result in additional costs to the student
  • If your account is passed to the University's approved debt collection agency or for legal action, all outstanding balances will become due immediately*
  • The University has the right to refuse credit facilities to students who in previous years, defaulted on their instalment dates
  • Eviction from residencies/flat (rental debts only)

*The University utilises the employment of professional and reputable debt collection agents, together with any interaction with government agencies as required.

If you are unsure what you might owe, or would like to set up a payment plan, you should contact the Finance Team at
