What payment methods can I use to pay my fees?

This page details payment methods - remember that some of these methods may incur bank charges which vary depending on your country, but are usually between £5 and £20. You will need to ensure you allow extra money for any bank charges when paying your fees.

StudentPay- online overseas bank transfers

The quickest and easiest way to pay your tuition fees is through the online overseas bank transfer via the Cardiff University’s StudentPay website. You can pay in the currency of your choice and in most cases it is free (no commission or bank charges). For more information see:

Click on "undergraduate" or "postgraduate" and then page down to "Online overseas bank transfers".

Cheque/ Bank Draft

Payment can be made by cheque or bank draft either in full or in three instalments. All cheques should have your student name and number written on the reverse and be made payable to "Cardiff University".

Paying by cheque is not part of online enrolment. This means that you need to send your tuition fee cheque in advance before you go online to enrol, otherwise the amount you have paid for your fees will not be recorded on the online enrolment task.

If your tuition fee cheque is sent by your Education Advisor/Agent, it is likely to take longer to be recorded, so you will need to allow extra time for the cheque to reach the Finance Office. Cheques should otherwise be posted to:
Cardiff University
Income Section
PO Box 497

30 - 36 Newport Road
CF10 3XR

Ordinary cheque from overseas

This can be made out in foreign currency, but must be in the UK sterling equivalent of the amount of tuition fee due. It should be posted to Cardiff University Finance Office (see above) before you leave for the UK.

International money order

This is arranged through your bank and should be posted to Cardiff University Finance Office (see above) before you leave for the UK. It must include a covering letter, stating your name, date of birth, student number, course and School.

Bank transfer

Payments made by telephonic transfer or bank transfer should be made to:

The Co-operative Bank plc
16 -17 High Street,
CF10 1AX

Credit card payment

You can pay your tuition fees using Access/Visa/MasterCard or Delta/Switch card (but not American Express or Nat West solocard). To make this payment please complete the credit/debit card mandate payment form when you enrol online at (available from late August/September).

Direct Debit payment

You can pay by direct debit if you have a valid UK bank/building society account which allows direct debits. If you choose this payment method you will have to complete a direct debit mandate as part of your online enrolment.
