Fees, Assessment and Payment

Home/EU students

Please bring your Student Finance Entitlement Letter from the Student Loans Company, or a letter from your sponsor to enrolment.  EU students should bring any letters received from the Student Loans Company concerning fees. This will enable us to assess your tuition fees quickly and will speed up the enrolment process.  If you have not applied for your tuition fees to be paid, and are going to pay them yourself, please let the fees assessor know when you enrol and they will note this on your enrolment form.

If you enrol at the University during September, you will receive an invoice for your tuition fees at enrolment. Fees for Home and EU students may be paid as follows:

  • students in University from September to June can pay in four equal instalments; by 31st October 2016, 31st January 2017, 31st March 2017 and 31st May 2017 respectively.
  • students in University from September to February can pay in two equal instalments; by 31st October 2016 and 31st January 2017 respectively.

Alternatively, if you pay your fees in full before 7th October 2016, you will receive an early payment discount of £500, if your tuition fee is £8,830, or £250, if your tuition fee is £4,415.

If you wish to make a contribution to your fees at enrolment, UCB will accept payment by cash, cheque, debit or credit card. Cheques should be made payable to UCB.

European Union (EU) students

E.U. students who have not applied for assistance towards the cost of tuition fees should do so within the first two weeks of arrival. Help and advice is available from the Student Services Unit on the Seventh Floor or the Finance and Information Services Unit (FISU) on the First Floor, both in the Summer Row Campus. You will need to bring with you either your passport or National Identity Card.

International Students

If you are a non-European Union student, you will not be able to complete enrolment without at least £4,500 of your tuition fees being paid.

Your University ID card

You will be issued with a University ID card when you enrol on your programme. Your ID card should be kept safe as it will be valid throughout the duration of your course. You will need your card to enter UCB premises, to borrow books and other materials from the library, to join the Guild of Students, to use UCB sports facilities, to gain entry to examination rooms, when submitting work for assessment and when collecting certificates.

If you lose your card, you can obtain a replacement from the UCB Finance Office, on the First floor at Summer Row. There is a charge of £5 for a replacement card.
