Eligible students can participate in our flexible payment plan for their programme. This allows payment for the next semester in full or by instalments. Students should read the relevant section below before registering online.
Pay by: Organisation sponsorship
Applicants who intend to have their studies funded through a sponsorship agreement need to have a completed and submitted sponsorship agreement form before the registration deadline. PLEASE NOTE: If your employer requires our invoicing to reflect a valid purchase order number, please provide this alongside the sponsorship agreement form. Documentation must be signed by the sponsor. You cannot sign it yourself unless you are a sole trader, in which case confirmation of your status is required on your business’ headed paper.
Once a sponsorship agreement (and valid purchase order where required) has been accepted by UCEM, your sponsoring organisation will have 30 days from the invoice date to pay, which will not affect your ability to register and commence your programme.
If the sponsorship agreement does not cover the full amount of fees required to register, you will then be required to pay the remaining balance using one of our other payment options such as through monthly instalments. Students are liable for any fees not paid for by the sponsor.
Pay by: Student loan from Student Finance England/Wales
Applicants who intend to fund their studies through a student loan should apply to the Student Loan Company as soon as possible as student loan applications can take up to 6-8 weeks to be approved.
Applicants who have a student loan in place ready for the registration deadline will need to select the ‘awaiting an adjustment’ option in the registration portal to be able to enter their 11-digit student loan reference number. This allows us to verify your student loan arrangement with the Student Loan company and will enable you to register for the upcoming semester.
Applicants who do not have a student loan approved in time for the registration deadline will be required to set up a monthly payment plan with a 20% deposit to be allowed to register and begin their studies. Any payments made will be refunded to you once the loan has been approved.
Pay by: One-off payment
Applicants who intend to fund their studies by paying for the entire programme upfront can make a one-off payment by credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa or AMEX) or via Paypal. Payment for the semester will be taken on the day of registration.
You can also pay by banker’s draft, or direct bank transfer. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request our bank details. Also note that the fees should be paid in pounds sterling (GBP).
Pay by: Monthly instalments
Applicants who intent to fund their studies through monthly instalments can do this if they have a credit or debit card (MasterCard, Visa or AMEX). There is no additional charge for using this plan and no interest is charged either. The amount you pay is generated by the number of modules you study per semester and is divided into five monthly instalments.
The first instalment will be taken on the day of registration. The remaining monthly instalments will begin on the 1st of the month after the start date of your programme.
When you have set up an instalment plan, you will receive an email advising you of the amounts and expected instalment due dates. Please be advised that failed payments may result in the removal of a student’s access to our virtual learning environment and study materials.
Pay by: Enhanced Learning Credits (ELCAS)
Applicants in the armed forces may be eligible for funding through the UK Ministry of Defence Enhanced Learning Credits scheme. Where ELCAS partially covers programme fees, the remaining balance is 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 email@example.com, 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 are not expecting to receive the CAN by the deadline for payment, please contact the Finance team at the earliest opportunity.
