Once you have secured your visa, you may want to pay some of all of your tuition fees before you leave home. Here are your payment options:

  • Bank Transfer to the University
  • Western Union Money Transfer
  • Direct Debit
  • Debit or Credit Card
  • Cheque or Demand Draft

When you have arrived

Option 1: Pay in full

If you pay all of your tuition fees at Enrolment you may be entitled to a discount for early payment. Further information is available on the Fees and Financial Support website. Here are your payment options:

  • Bank transfer to the University
  • Western Union money transfer
  • Debit or credit card
  • Cheque or demand draft

Option 2: Pay in instalments

If your fees are more than £8,000, at Enrolment you are required to pay a minimum of 50% of your tuition fees and the remaining fees paid using a standard instalment plan. Here are your instalment payment options:

  • Direct Debit
  • Debit or credit card

Further information

Bank transfer to the University

We accept payment in GBP Sterling only, as transfers in any other currency attract very high conversion rates. Transfers from outside the UK can take up to 10 working days to arrive and you may incur a charge of around £30. Email  for our account details.

Western Union money transfer

From August 2017, the University will also be accepting online payments made in collaboration with Western Union. Instructions for completing the money transfer will be available in many languages and the money transfer will be completed in your local currency. This means that you will know the exact cost, in your own currency, of the transcation without additional bank charges. Further information can be found at paying your fees.

Direct Debit

Direct Debits (DD) can only be arranged from a UK bank account.

Debit or credit card

Set up an instalment plan online or pay in person with your card at the Payzone in Richmond Building.

Cheques or demand drafts

Make cheques payable to the 'University of Bradford' writing your UB number, name, date of birth, and home address on the reverse. Contact if you wish to pay in a different currency.
