UK, EU and offshore students - paying your fees

Information on how to pay tuition fees for full and part-time home/EU and offshore students.

Fraud warning

Students are being approached by individuals offering to pay their fees at reduced rates or under special conditions. Fraudsters may present themselves as legitimate agencies or associates, they may be a friend. Never respond to these offers and always pay your tuition fees direct to UWE using the authorised payment methods below.

For more information view these leaflets produced by the police in english and mandarin. If you believe you have been a victim of fraud or have any questions contact UWE Bristol by emailing Students experiencing difficulty making payment should contact credit control by emailing

Ways to pay during registration

After you register and agree to the University's Registration Agreement and Conditions, you will need to make arrangements to pay your tuition fees.

Ways to pay in MYUWE

If you are included in online registration, you can access the following methods of payment during registration in MYUWE:

  • tuition fee loan/grant from Student Finance (Home, EU full and part-time undergraduate students only)
  • direct debit (£250 or more)
  • credit/debit card.

Other ways to pay

You can also pay by:

  • Recurring Card Payment (instalments)
  • UK bank transfer via Flywire (for payment in full)
  • International payments via Flywire (bank transfer and card payments from non-UK accounts for payment in full) 
  • other sponsor – view information for if your fees are being paid by an employer or other sponsor.
  • UWE Bristol staff sponsorship scheme – students who are being funded by a service/college within the University must complete the internal sponsorship form (PDF).
  • offshore authority financial support (Offshore undergraduate students only) -– you will need to make arrangements to pay any balance of fees using the methods outlined above.

Paying in instalments

Our preferred payment option is by direct debit over a three-month or six-month period (undergraduate only). However, we do offer a Recurring Card Payment (RCP) option.

Setting up an instalment plan

If you wish to pay in instalments it must be done via Direct Debit (UK bank account only) or Recurring Card Payment (RCP). The invoice is split equally over three or six months with payment collected on the first of each month. The maximum number of instalments is six months.

You can set the Direct Debit up through your registration portal or by completing a Direct Debit. RCP can be set-up using our secure RCP payment service.

The mandates are blank, so the value will show as zero. Once completed, you will receive a confirmation email. Once your invoice has been raised (after you have completed registration) you will receive an email confirming the payment dates and amounts. The direct debit or RCP will default to the six-month plan, so if you wish to opt for the three-month plan, please let us know.

September intake

The three-month plan runs from November to January and the six-month plan runs from November  to April. All fees are due in full by 1 April.

January intake

The three-month plan runs from March to May and the six-month plan runs from March to August. All fees are due in full by 1 August.

Postgraduate finance

If you’re receiving postgraduate student finance you can set up a Direct Debit up either through MYUWE or our online payment facility. You can then send in your student finance loan approval and payment schedule by emailing so that your payment schedule can be set in accordance with your loan payments.

Direct Debit or Recurring Card Payment (RCP)

You can pay the remaining balance of your tuition fees (after paying your deposit) by direct debit (only available from UK bank account) or Recurring Card Payment (RCP).

Please visit our Ways to Pay page for more information

Undergraduate students can pay during online registration in MYUWE.

Invoices and receipts

Incorrect invoice

If you believe your invoice amount is wrong or a scholarship/discount hasn’t been applied you will need to contact the Student and Programme Support Team for your college.

College of Arts, Technology and Environment

College of Business and Law

College of Health, Science and Society

If your invoice is for the full amount but you have paid a deposit there is no need to do anything. The invoice is for the full amount of the fees as this is what your course costs, however, you will only be expected to pay the remaining balance, and this will be reflected in MYUWE.

Paying without an invoice

In MYUWE, you can select “pay on account” which will allow you to pay any amount that you require. This will then be allocated as a credit to your account and we will match it to your invoice accordingly once it has been raised. Please also send an email to our Credit Control department explaining what the payment is for and to ensure they don’t issue a refund on it. Their email is

Issuing receipts

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a tuition fee receipt as we do not have the capacity to provide receipts for individual payments. If the payment was made online, the person who made the payment will have received an automatic receipt via email. Direct debit payments will show on your bank account as evidence of payment.

Your accommodation deposit should have been made online, in which case you (or the person making the payment) will have received an automatic receipt via email. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to provide a receipt in any other format.
