Planning your finances

If you must pay a tuition fee deposit, this will be stated in the letter we send offering you a place at Birmingham City University.

Tuition fee payment options

Tuition fees are payable for each year of your course and are due on or before enrolment. We offer three payment options:


Pay in full

Please see our payment options to pay our fees.   


Pay in payment plans.

Once you have paid your 50% tuition fee deposit and in receipt of your invoice, International Students have three options to pay the remaining 50% of their fees:

  1. 50% pre-enrolment and 50% immediately
  2. 50% pre-enrolment and a 6-instalment plan, or,
  3. 50% pre-enrolment and 3 instalments – one in each semester.

You can set up payment plans.


Payment by a sponsor

If an official sponsor, as defined by UKVI Appendix Finance FIN 9.1, is paying your tuition fees, you will need an original sponsor letter on headed paper confirming the amount they are paying.

Remember to upload your payment confirmation to your CAS Shield for all three payment options.

You need to bring your sponsorship letter to the enrolment
