Payments can be made by Credit / Debit card by telephoning the UEA Cashiers Office on +44 (0)1603 592687, and providing the following details - card type, name of cardholder, card number, expiry date, issue number (if applicable) and CVC (last 3 digits in signature strip on back of card).

Things to be aware of

  • To conform with Money Laundering Legislation, strict guidelines exist with regard to UEA refunding any 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. 
  • The maximum amount we can receive for pre-payment of accommodation fees is £1,000 which will count towards your room on campus once allocated. If your assigned room is less than this, any overpayment will be refunded after arrival. You MUST apply for a room to receive one. Full information of accommodation fees and the accommodation application form are available online at
  • We cannot accept any payment of living costs on top of the maximum pre-payment allowed for accommodation of £1,000. Therefore, the maximum total possible pre-payment is your tuition fees in full + £1,000. Any attempt to pay more than this maximum amount will result in the entire payment being refused.
  • Make sure you use your full name and application number as the bank reference when you make this payment, for example "John Smith, 800047891", so we can assign your payment to you. To help us do this, please complete the Payment Notice Form to alert the Finance Office of your payment.
  • Also ensure you keep a record of payment. We cannot issue a refund without proof of payment and can only refund to the same account payment was made from.
