As a student of the University, you will be responsible for ensuring that the annual tuition fees for each year of your programme are paid. This includes where the fees are being paid by a third party, such as a Company, Government Authority, Embassay etc.

The University requires full payment of tuition fees, unless you have selected the 'Instalment' option when completing Stage One of the online enrolment or re-enolment.  All instalments are expected to be made using the Online Card process.  Cash or Bankers Draft will not be accepted as instalment options. If you have queries regarding the payment of your fees please contact:

Finance Centre - Credit Control

Currently it is not the policy of Aston University to offer a discount if you pay your fees in full prior to the due date.

If your programme commences after the main enrolment period in October for example the start dates are; January, April or July, you will need to discuss arrangements for payment with a member of the Credit Control staff in the Finance Centre.

The tuition fees are raised by the Registry Office of the University (see contact details below). All tuition fee invoices will be sent automatically to your Aston University email address, once you have formally enrolled onto your course. It is very important that you check your Aston University student email on a regular basis. If you have opted to pay by instalment method i.e.; Online Card Payment a schedule/invoice will be emailed to you. Reminders of overdue payments, sanctions and a monthly statement of account will all be sent to your Aston University student email.

You are a "sponsored student" if all or part of your tuition or accommodation fees will be paid by an external organisation (not a family member). This may be an employer, a government/embassy or scholarship funding organisation. Aston University will send an invoice directly to your sponsor.

What to do

Once you have accepted a place at Aston, let us know as soon as possible that you are a sponsored student. Ask your Sponsor to  write a letter on their company headed paper or an official purchase order, which clearly states the following: 

  • Your full name.
  • Full details of where the invoice should be sent, including Sponsor contact name, details, address and e-mail address.
  • Any reference or name that needs to be quoted on the invoice.
  • What fees are to be paid by the sponsor (tuition, accommodation or both).
  • Amount of money the Sponsor is contributing to tuition or accommodation costs (the value in GBP or percentage of the fees).
  • How long the sponsorship will last. For example, whether you are being sponsored for one academic year only or for every year of your course. If this changes, your Sponsor will need to send us another letter. For example, if you are being sponsored for one academic year only, but your Sponsor later decides to sponsor you for every year of your course.

If you tell us you are a sponsored student, but we don't receive a letter from your Sponsor you will be charged. Please note that we reserve the right to reject a sponsor letter and if your sponsor does not pay, you will be personally responsible for payment of the debt. 

Please note Tuition fee instalment plans are not applicable to sponsored students.  Sponsors are required to make full payment within 30 days of the invoice date.
