Tuition Fees Payment Plans

In some cases, students who are self-financing, i.e. paying their own tuition, can do this through a payment plan, rather than paying in one lump sum. Whether or not we can offer you a payment plan, and what that payment plan might be, can depend on where you are studying, the type of student you are, and when your studies begin.

If you are paying your own tuition fees through a payment plan, it is important to remember that UWS is extending a credit facility by allowing you pay these in instalments rather than in one lump sum. If you do not adhere to your payment plan, also known as defaulting on your payments, you can find out more about the action that may be taken by the University in the Student Policies section below.

You can find out more about the payment plans that might be available to you in the sections below.

Sponsored Students

Sponsorship

If your tuition fees are being paid by someone other than yourself (or your family), then you are classed as a sponsored student. The payment plans detailed above are not applicable where a sponsor is paying your Tuition Fees, and separate terms and conditions will apply to your sponsor.

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, but 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, regardless of any agreement they have with a student, 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, and ensuring the University has the information needed to invoice your sponsor.

Download the Sponsorship Form

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

Where the University does not have your sponsor information you will be invoiced for your tuition fees.

If you are unsure about any of the information above, or anticipate any difficulties in making payments, you should contact our Finance Team directly:

  • The University has the right to refuse credit facilities to students who in previous years, defaulted on their instalment dates
