Birmingham City University aims to provide all of its students with a flexible range of secure payment options so that everyone has a payment method to suit them. Your tuition fee can either be paid in full prior to, or upon enrolment or in many cases spread over manageable regular instalments.

Please note when making a payment, any refunds must be returned to the source of the original payment.

The instructions below are suitable if you're paying your fees directly to us. If you are a UK/EU student and are paying your fees via The Student Loans company or your employer is sponsoring you for example, see our fee payment policy for full details about how you pay your fees.

Are you an international student? We have some further information for international students on how to pay your fees.
