Tuition Fees Payment Methods

Self-financing students can pay their tuition fees through our online payment facility or through the UWS Western Union payment portal.

Online Payment

Students are able to pay their tuition fees by either debit or credit card using our online payment facility.

Students can make a one off-payment or set up a recurring payment plan, and family or friends can make a payment on a student's behalf, should this be necessary.

Western Union

For international students wishing to pay tuition fees in their local currency, we work in partnership with Western Union to provide a cost effective and simple payment portal.

Tuition fees payment plans

There are tuition fee payment plans for different levels and types of study at UWS. All plans require a one module deposit in order to enrol.

If you are paying your own tuition fees, it is important to remember that UWS is extending a credit facility by allowing you pay these through a payment plan rather than in one instalment.

You will have to make a payment before being able to enrol and will then have to make monthly payments. If you do not adhere to your agreed payment plan, also known as defaulting on your payments, we may be unable to extend this facility.

Sponsored students

If your tuition fees are being paid by someone other than yourself (or your family), then you are classed as a sponsored student.

Sponsorship

Your sponsor may be a:

  • Private sector employer
  • Public sector organisation
  • Government agency
  • Charitable trust
  • International government or agency
  • Foundation
  • Not-for-profit organisation
  • Overseas institution

Sponsors can pay all or part of your tuition fees and any additional costs on your behalf.

It is important to remember that the University's relationship is always with the student. If a sponsor fails to pay all or part of the fee, the student will remain liable for any outstanding costs. 

Sponsorship form

If your tuition fees are being paid on your behalf by a sponsor, you need to submit a sponsorship form confirming the details for your arrangement.

 

Download a sponsorship form

 

Completed forms should be returned by email to: ar@uws.ac.uk.

If we do not receive your sponsor information, you will be invoiced for all tuition fees due.

Student Policies

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 ar@uws.ac.uk.
