Undergraduate and Postgraduate overseas fee-paying applicants

To secure a place on your chosen course (subject to meeting the conditions of any offer made), all overseas undergraduate, Postgraduate Masters and, Postgraduate Research applicants will need to pay a deposit.


Standard Deposit Amounts

Level Amount
Undergraduate Year 0 or 1 entry £4,000*
Undergraduate Year 2 or 3 entry £2,000*
Postgraduate Taught £4,000*
Postgraduate Research £4,000*

*Please note that we are requesting individuals from areas identified as a student visa compliance risk, to pay an increased deposit of £10,000. This is to assist with demonstrating that you have the funds to study the course and strengthen your visa application. Please check your offer email to see the exact amount you have been requested to pay as a deposit.

The deadlines for receipt of international deposits are:

  • Undergraduate courses – 31 July or within 5 days of any offer made after this date.

  • Postgraduate Taught Masters (September start) - 31 July

  • Postgraduate Taught Masters (January / February start) - 10 November

  • Postgraduate Research - 3 months prior to the start of the course

If we receive your deposit after your deadline, we are unable to guarantee your place on your course and the university reserves the right to cancel your application.


What your deposit covers

Payment of the deposit will:

  • Hold your place on the course, subject to fulfilling any conditions of offer. 

  • 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 31 July (for September start courses). 

  • Enable us to issue you with a CAS. It is important to note 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 (UKVI) limits the amount that can be shown on your CAS to the full tuition fees and £1,334 towards accommodation. Therefore, we recommend that you do not pay more than this amount in advance.


Things to be aware of

  • Deposit payment must be received before a CAS will be issued. We will not issue a CAS more than six months prior to the course start date.

  • All academic conditions of an offer must be met before a CAS can be issued.

  • The deposit amount received will be listed in the CAS, reducing the amount of funds you need to demonstrate as part of the visa application process.

  • All overseas fee-paying students are required to pay the deposit unless the University decide to waive it. A waiver may be granted to applicants providing evidence of a scholarship covering full tuition fees, or those studying at INTO UEA. Evidence must be provided by the deposit deadline. The decision on whether or not a deposit is waived is made solely by the University.

  • The deposit will be offset against the first tuition fee instalment which is issued by UEA after you register on your course. 

Where an applicant has applied through UCAS, if a deposit payment is not received by the deadline, the university reserves the right to cancel the application and release the applicant into clearing.


Deposit Refund Policy

A full refund will be granted if requested within 14 days from the date the payment is received by UEA under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. After this date deposits are not ordinarily refunded except in the circumstances listed in this policy.

For refund requests submitted more than 14 days after Deposit Payment:

  • Please note that refund requests will only be considered within 3 years of payment.

  • Refunds will only be considered if you make the request via our Refund Form.

  • The University is not liable for exchange rate fluctuations, or for any bank or other charges incurred.

  • The University reserves the right to review and amend our deposit requirements as required.


How to request a refund

Please contact us with any evidence required. This will need to include a full copy of the visa decision letter, where your CAS has been marked USED by UKVI. When completing the form, you must use the same email address that is linked to your UEA or UCAS application.


What UEA does on receipt of your request

We will acknowledge the request and check that we have all the required information. If further information is required, we will request this by email.
If you meet the criteria for the refund, we will confirm this by email and will then notify the UEA Finance Team to issue a refund.


When will we refund a deposit?

  • You do not meet the conditions of your offer and we reject you, or you do not meet the conditions of your offer in time to start the course. 

  • The university notifies you that we have cancelled or withdrawn your course.

  • If your Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) clearance is refused or rejected. We will require evidence of this. 

  • If your visa application has been refused or rejected by UKVI for any reason other than for a fraudulent application. A copy of the visa refusal notice must be provided.

  • Any decision to make a full or partial refund in exceptional circumstances is entirely at the discretion of the University and evidence may be required to support any claim.


When will we NOT refund a deposit?

  • If you decide not to study at UEA. 

  • If the visa refusal is due to submission of falsified or non-genuine documents.

  • Where inaccurate information or documentation is provided to the university or where wilful misrepresentation, or omission has occurred.

  • Applicants who fail to attend or register as a student but later transfer institution, withdraw, are expelled, or fail to pass the course.

  • If you are granted a deferral, your deposit will be rolled over to the year in which you expect to start your studies.

Important notes

If approved, 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.

Exact refund 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 UK Money Laundering Legislation, refunds can only be made back to the account from which the payment was originally made. For bank transfers, proof of payment such as a receipt or a bank statement showing payment from that account, as well as the bank’s SWIFT or BIC code, must be produced. For credit or debit card payments, the card details will need to be provided by calling the UEA Finance Team. Failure to do so will delay the refund severely or prevent it altogether.

We may verify the reason for your visa rejection with the UKVI prior to making a decision on your refund request. If the UKVI inform us your rejection was owing to the submission of fraudulent documentation, you will not be eligible for a refund.

The University reserves the right to stop accepting deposit payments once course places are full.
