Student Accounts Office

The Student Accounts office administer all payments for tuition fees, accommodation fees and other ancillary items, such as bedding and catering packs. We ensure your student account is maintained and updated with any changes during the course of your studies.

From the initial registration process at the beginning of the academic year, we work closely with other departments to ensure accounts are regularly adjusted to reflect any changes in tuition or rent charges. We also update payment and sponsor information, and provide financial information where requested.
