What date should I pay my fee by? 

If you are paying all or a portion of your tuition fee personally, University policy is that you pay in full upon enrolment, however we do make provision for students who are unable to pay the full amount at once.

2019/2020

Due to the varied impact of COVID-19 on our students and their finances, the University has extended the payment deadline for currently enrolled students to the end of their current stage of enrolment.

If you are currently enrolled your tuition fee must be paid in full before you will be permitted to re-enrol onto a further stage of study or graduate. If you wish to query the balance owed or have any other question in relation to payment of an outstanding tuition fee balance for 2019/2020, please contact the student accounts team by e-mail: studentaccountsteam@plymouth.ac.uk.

Advice for students studying professional development modules

You should receive a confirmation letter from the Professional Development Unit detailing the cost of your module(s). If you are paying the tuition fee yourself, please ensure it is paid before the module start date.

If an organisation is paying your fees, please ensure that the sponsorship form, sent to you with your application form, is fully completed and returned to the Professional Development Unit. An invoice will not be sent to your sponsor until this form is received. If your sponsoring organisation is a Health Trust, in order for us to invoice them you will need to provide the PO (Purchase Order) number as assigned by your Health Trust on the sponsor form. Unless your fully completed sponsor form is returned before the module starts you will be considered to be self-paying and required to pay the fee in full at that point. A refund to you can be subsequently arranged if your sponsor pays us later.
