How to make a payment

Pay online by credit or debit card

Arrange to make an immediate single payment. To pay online with Visa, MasterCard or American Express, visit our ePayments portal.

You’ll need your Student ID to hand. Please note: for high value transactions, we strongly recommend that you contact your bank or card issuer to advise them you’re intending to process the payment of your fees. This will avoid delays or problems in your transaction being processed.

Pay by international bank transfer (for international and EU students)

Are you an international or EU student wanting to pay your tuition fees or accommodation fees in your local currency? We’ve partnered with Western Union Business Solutions to allow you to securely send international bank transfers for payment of your tuition fees in your local currency. It’s safe, simple and secure. For an instant quote in your local currency, guaranteed for 72 hours, visit GlobalPay, the smarter way to make student payments. 

Please note: we do not accept payment in cash for tuition fees.

Tuition fee fraud

The Higher Education sector is seeing rising levels of fraud in relation to the payment of tuition fees. Please do not pay your tuition fee through a ‘third party facilitator’, particularly if that facilitator approaches you direct and offers a discount. A ‘third party facilitator’ could also be someone known to you, such as another student, or a former student at the same university.

You should only ever pay your fee direct to the University using our authorised payment methods.

Chinese students have been particularly targeted. The City of London Police’s Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit (DCPCU) has issued an information document which provides further information. It is available in English and Chinese.

Please stay alert and if you have any concerns please contact the Student Accounts team in the first instance – studentaccounts@plymouth.ac.uk
