Eligible students can apply to participate in one of our flexible payment plans for their programme which allow you to pay for your next semester in full or by instalments. Students should read the relevant section below before attempting to register online.
Pay by: One-off payment
You can pay by credit/debit card, bank/building society cheque, banker’s draft, or direct bank transfer. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request our bank details.
You may make a one-off payment online by credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa or AMEX) or via Paypal. Payment for the semester will be taken on the day of registration.
Bank/building society cheque, direct payment or banker’s draft payments should be in pounds sterling (GBP) drawn on a UK bank and made payable to University College of Estate Management. Students intending to pay by these methods should initially register online and follow the relevant instructions. Please note that you will not be registered on the programme until payment has been received.
Pay by: Monthly payments
You can pay your fees on a monthly instalment plan if you have a credit or debit card. There is no additional charge for using this plan and no interest is charged.
If payment for the semester is made online by credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa or AMEX), the initial instalment will be taken on the day of registration. The remaining monthly instalments will begin on the 25th of the month after the start date of your programme. If your programme has semesters of up to six months, there will be a total of five instalments. For all other diploma/degree programmes there will be eight instalments. To work out the approximate instalment amount divide your fees by the appropriate number of instalments.
When you have set up an instalment plan, you will receive an email advising you of the amounts and expected instalment due dates. You must pay the full amount of fees due to us before any exams can be taken. If for any reason you default on any instalments we may require full repayment of the total amount outstanding.
Pay by: Sponsoring organisation
A third party (such as an employer) who is paying either all or part of your fees and agrees to be invoiced for fees should complete one of these forms: UK sponsorship agreement form or non-UK sponsorship agreement form. This must be done prior to registering online. You will receive notification by email confirming when your sponsorship agreement has been confirmed and you are able to register online.
Your sponsor must sign the sponsorship agreement form. You cannot sign it yourself unless you are a sole trader, in which case confirmation of your status is required on your business’s headed paper.
For UK sponsors, once a sponsorship agreement has been accepted by UCEM (usually requiring a Purchase Order number), and they have been invoiced, your sponsoring organisation will have 30 days from the invoice date to pay the invoice, which will not affect your ability to register and commence your programme.
For non-UK organisations we will raise a Pro-forma invoice that you need to ensure is paid in advance of your programme start date. You will not be registered on the programme until payment has been received.
If the sponsorship agreement does not cover the full amount of fees due as shown on the student registration agreement, you may then pay the balance using the options available through our online portal.
Pay by: Student loan from Student Finance England/Wales
Foundation Degree and BSc students only.
Once you receive your loan confirmation letter from Student Finance you can begin the online registration process. When you reach the registration page, you will be able to indicate that you are expecting to see an adjustment for your Student Loan if it is not already shown. Please ensure you have returned your Declaration to Student Finance if this is the first semester of your loan year.
If you have not received confirmation of your loan by the time you need to register you should register online and make payment yourself using the monthly payments plan. As soon as you receive your letter from Student Finance email email@example.com requesting a refund of the payment(s) you have made.
Students who have applied for a postgraduate loan need to register and pay by one-off or monthly payments. This is because the loan is paid to the student and not to the learning provider. Loans are only paid to the student after registration has been confirmed.
Pay by: Enhanced Learning Credits (ELCAS)
Students in the armed forces may be eligible for funding through the UK Ministry of Defence Enhanced Learning Credits scheme. This usually covers part of the programme fees with the balance to be paid by the student. Please contact your Education Officer for further information.
When you receive your Claim Authorisation Note (CAN) you need to email a copy of this to firstname.lastname@example.org. This must be done prior to registering online. You will receive notification by email confirming when your letter has been processed and you are able to register online.
ELCAS regulations mean that you cannot register and pay fees yourself until your CAN is issued, so if you are not expecting to receive it by the deadline for payment please contact email@example.com at the earliest opportunity.
Pay by: Student Loan from Future Finance
We now offer Future Finance Student Loans as an alternative source of funding for our students.
Details of eligibility requirements, interest rates and other key terms of the loan are available by visiting the Future Finance website ucem.futurefinance.com

Pay by: Career Development Loan
Once you receive your confirmation letter from your loan provider you need to email a copy of this to firstname.lastname@example.org. This must be done prior to registering online. You will receive notification by email confirming when your letter has been processed and you are able to register online.
If you have not received confirmation of your loan by the time you need to register you should register online and make payment yourself using the monthly payments plan. As soon as you receive your letter from your provider email a copy to email@example.com requesting a refund of any overpayment you have made.
