PAYMENT OPTIONS AND GUIDANCE
BUILT FOR FLEXIBILITY
UCEM recognises that all students have different financial circumstances and offers several ways to pay:
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.
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 processed.
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.
- For undergraduate students – As the loan will be paid directly to UCEM, the Finance team will make an adjustment to your record which will allow you to complete the registration with the student loan
- For postgraduate students – As the loan will be paid directly to you, initial payment to UCEM must be made to complete the registration. After you have registered and paid, our finance team will confirm your registration with Student Finance who will then release the awarded funding to your bank account. If you are unable to pay by 5x instalments payment plan, please contact the Finance team for an alternative payment plan to coincide with your postgraduate instalments.
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.
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 choose the alternative payment options on the registration portal. Our bank details will be available on the page.
Please be advised that the full semester’s fee payment is required if you make a bank transfer or pay by banker’s draft. Also note that the fees should be paid in pounds sterling (GBP).
You can also pay by banker’s draft, or direct bank transfer. Please contact email@example.com to request our bank details. Also note that the fees should be paid in pounds sterling (GBP).
Applicants who intend 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.
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 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 are not expecting to receive the CAN by the deadline for payment, please contact the Finance team at the earliest opportunity.
