Early payment discount scheme

The University currently offers a 3% early payment discount* to students paying their annual tuition fee in full at the start of their course.  The discount is offered on net annual tuition fees of £8000 or over (after all fee scholarships/discounts have been deducted and does not include bench fees).

To be eligible for the discount, 97% of the net tuition fee must have been paid to the University of Bradford by the deadline dates in the table below (including any payments from a sponsor/third party payer).

Any overpayment of fees will be held in credit against future fee charges and will not be refunded. Overpayments will only be refunded to students in the final year of their study where there are no further fees payable.

*The discount scheme will not apply to fees where a reduced standard fee is charged, or where an alternative early payment discount of a higher value has been applied.
