Finance and enrolment

You will be expected to make/arrange fee payment at enrolment. If you cannot provide evidence of your student funding or application for funding it will not stop you being enrolled, but you will be responsible for payment of fees and will be required to make payment in accordance with the University’s Fee Payment Policy.
