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 only be refunded in the final year of a students study where there are no further fees payable.

*The discount scheme will not apply to fees where an alternative early payment discount of a higher value has been applied.
