PAYING TUITION FEES WITH A STUDENT LOAN

Tuition Fee Loans are paid directly to the UEA in three instalments throughout the year. The registration task should be pre-filled with these details but if they aren’t you will need to let finance know if you plan to use a fee loan. There will be an option to do this in the task.

PAYING YOUR TUITION FEES DIRECTLY

If you are paying fees yourself, or a parent/guardian is paying them for you, you/they will need to complete the tuition fee section of the online registration. You/they can choose to pay in full, 9 instalments by Direct Debit or 3 termly instalments. If you’re paying the fees all at once, you have 28 days from the date of the invoice to make your payment. If paying by instalments, the payment is due before or on the dates stated in the notifications that are sent.

PAYING YOUR ACCOMMODATION FEES

We offer a number of different payment options, which can include a one off yearly payment, 3 termly instalments or 9 ‘monthly’ instalments. Many of you may be receiving funding from Student Finance, for which you can opt to pay your accommodation in 3 instalments which coincide with your loan payments. However, if you are paying for your accommodation independently you may be better off paying over the 9 (approx. monthly) instalments. You will need to set up a UK bank account for both receiving any student loan payments you are eligible for, but also to establish the Direct Debit payments to the university.
 

Scholarships, Sponsorships and Bursaries

SCHOLARSHIP OR SPONSOR

If you are in receipt of a scholarship or have a sponsor it should show up on your online registration task automatically. If it doesn't, press something is wrong, tell us (on the task) and let us know.  Please follow this up by submitting a scan or supporting documentation to accounts.receivable@uea.ac.uk.

BURSARIES

Students expecting a UEA Bursary due to low household income will be contacted by the UEA Bursaries office via their UEA e-mail account, once registered.
