How should I pay my tuition fees?
You should pay your tuition fees using Convera’s GlobalPay for Students. This allows you or your parents to pay for fees in the
currency of your choice, giving you a simple, quick and secure way to initiate the payment.
Be aware of agents offering to pay your fees as you may end up becoming victim to an Agency Scam. Find out more
about agency scams, and other tuition fee scams, here.

What are the implications of not paying?
Not making payments on time will result in you initially becoming tuition fee blocked and eventually tuition fee
Tuition Fee Blocked – This means that the University will limit your access to University Services such as
the Library and LibGuides.
Tuition Fee Excluded - This means that you will be blocked from accessing the University, from attending
classes, and from accessing Aula (including the ability to submit your assessments). Ultimately, you will not be
able to continue your studies until a payment is made. There may also be other implications, such as being
reported to UKVI and your details being passed to the debt collection agency STA international.
