Tuition Fees

Please find specific information regarding your course fees on the applicable course page.

Fees must be paid in full at enrolment unless an instalment arrangement is set up.

International Students:

A deposit of 50% of your first year’s course fees is required to secure your place at the University and must be paid before you apply for your student visa.

You must also pay 50% of your fees before enrolling in subsequent years.

Tuition fee payments can be made by credit or debit card or by bank transfer via Flywire. Thereafter, full payment or instalments can be made. 

Full Payment:

Tuition fees can be paid in full at the time of enrolment, which may entitle you to an Early Payer Discount (EPD). See 'Early Payer Discount, below:

Instalments:

A maximum of 7 equal and consecutive monthly instalments to be paid in full within 7 months of course start date. Home/EU postgraduate students may set up termly recurring card plan for payments to be made in line with postgraduate loan instalments at the start of each term.

Any failed instalment will automatically be attempted again 5 days following the original attempt. Should the second attempt fail, the instalment arrangement will be cancelled.

If the student chooses to pay in full at the time of enrolment, they may be eligible for an Early Payer Discount (EPD) of £300 providing the following conditions are met: - 

  • The student is enrolled on a full-time undergraduate course studying, and paying for, 120 credits in a year, and paying the fee themselves. (If the student is in receipt of the SLC Tuition Fee Grant, they are not eligible for the discount.) 
Or 

  • The student is enrolled as a full time student on a taught postgraduate course, paying for the full 180 credit fee in year 1, and paying the fee themselves.
Or

  • The student is classed as an international fee payer and is enrolled on a full time postgraduate research degree, and paying the fee themselves (n.b. This does not apply to a writing up or resubmission fee). 


  • EPD does not apply to students enrolled on a placement year.
  • EPD is only applicable to students not in receipt of other scholarships, bursaries and discounts (with the exception of the International scholarship initiative: - https://www.southwales.ac.uk/international/fees-scholarships/internationalscholarships/).
  • Fees must be paid in full no later than 14 calendar days after the start date of their course as indicated on their academic record.
  • Any student due a reduction in annual tuition fee due to discontinuation or a reduction in chargeable credits will no longer be eligible for Early Payer Discount.
