How to pay your tuition fees

Self-funding postgraduate students should pay in full at enrolment or join either of the University’s agreed instalment schemes (Direct Debit or Auto Card Payments) available during online enrolment/registration or by contacting a member of the Finance Service Centre team. Full details of payment methods are available on the Finance web pages.

Postgraduate Loans (England/Wales) students will be directed to set up an Auto Card Payment to create your loan instalment plan. Please email (if your confirmation letter from Student Finance indicates payments dates that differs from the Manchester Met payment plan), once you have received your invoice if you want to amend your instalment dates. This will allow the University to revise your instalment plan in line with your schedule of payments, and will prevent your fees from becoming overdue.
