Postgraduate tuition fee deposits for applicants

You can pay your tuition fees using a UK bank account by transferring funds directly to the University. The University's bank details are:

Always quote your student ID number and your name to ensure we are able to identify your payment.

Please note that the transfer can take up to 10 working days to show in our account so you should allow time for your payment to clear.

If you're an international student, you can pay your tuition fees using our online portal via Western Union.

You can pay via debit/credit card by telephoning the Cashiers Office based at Stag Hill, University of Surrey:

  • +44 (0)1483 68 2101

The Cashiers Office is open 9am - 12:30pm, Monday to Friday.

Throughout the pandemic it has been demonstrated that payment of nearly all tuition and accommodation fees via electronic means is the clear preference of our students. As such, and to discourage students from carrying large amounts of cash around campus and the surrounding areas, the University no longer accepts cash payments for tuition and accommodation fees.

All payments should be made using the methods listed on MySurrey website, which includes online and bank transfer options. 

If you require assistance with making an online payment you can visit MySurrey Hive on the Stag Hill campus for support.
