Hold open your place, secure accommodation and obtain a visa
Postgraduate applicants only
In order to secure a place on your chosen course (subject to meeting the conditions of any offer made), we require all overseas Postgraduate Masters and Postgraduate Research applicants to pay a £2,000 deposit. The deadlines for receipt of International Deposits are:
- Postgraduate Taught Masters (September start) - 31 July
- Postgraduate Taught Masters (January / February start ) - 27 November
- Postgraduate Research - 3 months prior to the start of the course
If we receive your deposit after the deadline, we are unable to guarantee your place on your course.
Students receiving a scholarship that covers their full tuition fees may have the deposit waived, if they provide the Admissions Office with a copy of their scholarship award. Students studying at INTO UEA may also have their deposit waived.
What your deposit covers
Payment of the deposit will:
- Hold open your place on the course, subject to fulfilling any conditions of your offer, at which point a place to study on your chosen programme will be allocated.
- Secure a place in UEA accommodation for eligible applicants, subject to the terms and conditions outlined by the Accommodation Office, including completion of the Accommodation Preference Form by the 31st July.
- Secure your CAS to enable you to apply for your student visa. Follow the guidance on our Applying for Your Student Visa pages and/or the advice of your local UEA representative/agent wherever possible (see specific country pages on this site to see our approved representatives/agents). Your CAS will not be issued until your deposit is received and all the conditions of your offer have been met.
Pre-payment towards tuition fees and accommodation
You may pay more than the required deposit if you wish. However, the UK Visa & Immigration Service limits the amount that can be shown on your CAS to the full tuition fees and £1,020 towards accommodation. Therefore we recommend that you do not pay more than this amount in advance. These pre-payments will be listed on your CAS and deducted from the amount you will need to show to gain your visa.
Things to be aware of
- Deposit payment/waiver must be received before a CAS will be issued. CAS's will usually not be sent until 3 months before the course start date.
- The deposit amount received will be listed in the CAS, reducing the amount of funds needed in the visa application process
- All overseas students are required to pay the £2,000 deposit unless the Admissions office agree to waive it. A waiver may be granted to either students providing evidence of a full fees scholarship, or those studying at INTO UEA.
- The deposit will be offset against the first tuition fee instalment which is issued by UEA after you register on your course.
Deposit Refund Policy
Our refunds policy is set out below.
- Appeals for a refund should be submitted to the Admissions Office.
- The deposit paid will be reimbursed in full if evidence of a visa rejection is received and verified from the relevant UK Visa office. Refunds will not be given however if the visa rejection is due to failure to follow UK Visa & Immigration Service guidance or submission of fraudulent documents.
- Refunds will also be made to conditional offer-holders who fail to meet the conditions of their offer.
- Any offer-holder who wishes to defer their place to the following year will have any deposit deferred as well, the deposit will not be refunded
- Offer holders for academic year 2020/21, who are unable to attend the course due to the impact of COVID-19 may wish to defer their place with the deposit, or apply for a refund outlining why the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their situation. The Admissions Service will assess each case on an individual basis.
- Offer holders who change their minds and decide not to take up their place will not be entitled to a deposit refund.
- Refunds will only be made to the individual or organisation who originally paid the deposit. If a third party has paid the deposit on behalf of the applicant we are unable to refund the deposit directly to the applicant.
- Refunds will be made as quickly as possible. Exact times may vary depending on the reason for the requested refund and the method by which original payment was made.
- To conform with UK Money Laundering Legislation, strict guidelines exist with regard to refunding payments made, in particular if those payments are made in cash. If we are unable to satisfactorily verify the source of the funds or the credentials of the payer, UEA may be unable to repay the funds. You are therefore strongly recommended to make payments by bank transfer or payment card or by Flywire if paying in foreign currencies.
- As part of the Money Laundering Legislation, refunds can only be made to the account from which the payment was made originally. Proof of payment such as a receipt or a bank statement showing payment from that account must be produced. We will also need the bank's SWIFT or BIC code in order to make a refund. Failure to do so will delay the refund severely or prevent it altogether.
- Please note that refund requests will only be authorised within 3 years of the deposit payment date.
