How to make a payment
UK Payments – Pay online by credit or debit card, or set up Recurring Card Payments
Pay online anytime by credit or debit card using our online portal.
  • If you wish to pay your tuition fee in instalments, you will be contacted prior to the first instalment deadline to input your card details into our payment portal to enable payment of your fees to be taken automatically in GBP on the instalment due dates. You do not need to do anything until you are asked to do so, which should be by the first week of November 2022.
  • The amounts due, including the due dates, will be pre-populated in the payment portal for your convenience. Please ensure you have sufficient funds available on the relevant dates.
  • Please log into the portal, select the UK payment portal and enter the required information. This includes your Student ID & date of birth. On the following page select ‘Recurring Card Payment’.
  • Please note that non-payment of your tuition fee can have serious consequences on your academic progress and can include having sanctions placed on your IT & library access.
You do not need to take any action if:
  • you have a loan from the student loan company for your tuition fees, or other relevant funding body making payment directly to the University.
  • a Sponsor is making payment for your fees and you have provided a sponsored letter
  • you wish to make payment in a currency other than GBP. Please then use our international payment provider, Flywire, using the same 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.

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 – studentaccountsteam@plymouth.ac.uk
