Payment Portal

There are several ways of paying your tuition or accommodation fees. 

If you've applied for a Tuition Fee Loan you don't need to pay your fees yourself – please just bring your assessment letter from Student Finance England with you to enrolment.  

If you are paying your fees yourself, you will receive a 2% discount if you pay in full at or before enrolment by bank transfer, debit card, cheque, cash or Western Union. (We accept credit card payments, but these do not receive a 2% discount.) 

Payment methods

How do I pay by card?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Electron, Solo and Maestro cards for payment of fees using this facility.

Unfortunately, we do not accept the Chinese UNIPAY credit card as a form of payment. 

Payments can only be made in pounds sterling.

  • 50% of fee to enrol
  • 25% of fee on 31 January 2019
  • 25% of fee on 30 April 2019

Part-time students can choose to pay in full at or before enrolment, or in three, or eight instalments throughout the year.

Important information for all students paying by Direct Debit

Applications have to be submitted online. Please note instalments can only be collected by Direct Debit under the University's approved scheme.

To be eligible to pay by instalments, you must have a UK bank account that accepts Direct Debits. If you are in any doubt please contact your Bank or Building Society.

Notifying you of collection dates and amounts

The account holder will receive an Advance Notification advising of the collection dates and amounts. If for any reason these dates or amounts are altered, you will receive a revised Advance Notification at least five working days prior to collection.

Cancelled instructions

If your Direct Debit is cancelled, any overdue payments will be payable immediately. 

Postgraduate Loan

Unlike the undergraduate Tuition Fee Loan the Postgraduate Loan is paid directly into the student's bank account, so if you're planning to fund your studies using the Postgraduate Loan you'll need to arrange to pay your tuition fees directly with the University. 

Postgraduate students can pay their fees using any of the other methods detailed on this page, or via Direct Debit on dates which follow the instalments of the Postgraduate Loan. The Postgraduate Loan will be paid into your bank account as follows: 

  • 33% shortly after your course start date (once the University confirms your enrolment to the Student Loans Company)
  • 33% on the last Wednesday of the 4th month of your course
  • 34% on the last Wednesday of the 7th month of your course

If you opt to pay your tuition fees to the University via Direct Debit matching these instalments, one third of your annual tuition fee will be due on each of the following dates:

  • exactly one month following your enrolment at the University
  • the last working day of the 4th month 
  • the last working day of the 7th month

Payments can be made by visiting the MyHull portal once you have received the online request to enrol.

Can I have a receipt/confirmation that I have paid my fees?

For a receipt, please email studentfinance@hull.ac.uk with the following information: 

  • Student's name and UCAS personal ID, application number, or student registration number
  • Date you made the payment
  • How you made the payment
  • Sort code and account number if applicable
  • Any other reference you might have

Please bear in mind that it can take up to 10 working days for the University to receive your payment, depending on the payment method used. 

I'm a sponsored student: what do I need to do?

If you're a sponsored student, you must produce written confirmation of sponsorship so your sponsor can be invoiced.

Sponsor letters must be in English, on formal letterheaded paper, and must include your name, address, UCAS personal ID/applicant number/student registration number, and reference to either the sponsorship amount in pounds sterling (£) or the length of sponsorship (i.e. first year/full course).

You'll be expected to pay the full tuition fee if the above requirement is not met, or if your sponsor does not meet the University's terms and conditions regarding payment of tuition fees.

Your sponsor will need to be a legitimate government or public body - funding from family members (even if through a business) is unacceptable, and you'll be classed as self-funding.

You must send your confirmation letter to the following address at least six weeks before your date of enrolment to allow us to contact your sponsor and confirm their details.
