As an international student you are required to make an advance payment of 50% towards your tuition fees at the time of applying to study at the University of Dundee.
You can make payment of your full fees or the advance payment through My Balance @ Dundee or by bank transfer, for more details see 'How to Make Payment' below.
The balance of your tuition fees becomes due when you matriculate. You can again make payment of the balance of your fees through My Balance @ Dundee or by bank transfer; you may also pay the balance of your fees, with a total value of more than £400, in 7 instalments by Direct Debit. Direct Debit allows regular payments to be made from a UK bank account and cannot be set up on an International bank account. See 'How to Make Payment' below.
Fees Unpaid After 28 Days
If you have not paid your tuition fees in full or arranged to pay by Direct Debit instalments within 28 days of matriculation you will be liable to pay a late payment fee of 3.5% on your tuition fee. The precise level of the late payment fee depends upon the amount of your tuition fees. For example, an overdue fee of £4,500 will incur a late payment fee of £157.50 (maximum charge £400).
In the event that you default on any of the payments due under your instalment plan, the University reserves the right to cancel the instalment plan, which will result in your fees becoming due in full immediately and a late payment fee being applied.
The consequences of non
- your access to University facilities e.g. Library and IT Services, will be revoked
- you will be withdrawn from your studies e.g. unable to receive tuition and sit exams
- your funding body will be advised of your student status being revoked
- if you are a Tier 4 Visa holder, being in debt to the University is breach of your Visa conditions. The UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) will be notified that we are no longer sponsoring your Visa, which will result in your Visa being invalid and you will be required to return home.
- you will not receive your degree certificate
- your details will be passed to a debt collection agency
If your fees are to be paid by an employer or other sponsor, then please ensure you bring your letter of funding to matriculation. Only an organisation such as a company will be regarded as a sponsor. You will be regarded as self-funding if your fees are paid by a member of your family or any other individual such as a family friend.
Be aware that you are responsible for ensuring your fees are paid in full and on time. If we have not received payment of your fees from your sponsor within 3 months of matriculation, then you will be billed directly. In the event that the University does not receive full payment from your sponsor, for example, where bank charges have been deducted from the amount paid by your sponsor, you will be liable to pay the difference. You will be notified of any shortfall or non-payment by the Cash Office. The University will not pursue any sponsor for amounts of £100 or less; therefore, all charges and postgraduate continuation of study fees are payable by the student. It is your responsibility to pursue your sponsor for any fees or bank charges you consider to be your sponsor's liability.
