When to pay

Whichever payment method you use, you can pay the full amount online for the upcoming year in one go. If you wish to do this, please ensure that payment is received prior to registration for your course or before 18 September (whichever is earlier).

International students joining the University are required to pay 100% of the tuition fees on or before arrival and commencement of the course.

Instalment options

One instalment

If you'd like to pay your fees in full, payment is due by 18 September. 

Three instalments

Three instalments are available to pay tuition fees, for UK and returning International students.

Accommodation instalments

If you're staying in University accommodation, your accommodation licence fee is due by 15 October. 

All students can pay their accommodation fees in 3 or 8 instalments. Students who are using maintenance loan payments to help with payment of accommodation fees are advised to select 3 instalments. The 3 instalment dates are arranged to coincide with or be just after the date you receive your maintenance loan payments.

We can allow up to 8 months for payment of accommodation charges, but this is not recommended for students paying from their maintenance loans. To choose this option, please select the 3 instalment option and email fees@bathspa.ac.uk to let us know your preference for 8 instalments. We can then make the adjustment to the payment plan.

Please note: if you leave your studies before the first payment date, you'll be liable to pay the accommodation fee according to the terms of your licence.
