Pay your fees

All programmes of study which lead to a University award incur a tuition fee. Both tuition fees and accommodation fees can be paid using our online payment system.

The University offers a fixed fee guarantee for all full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students from outside the EU (excluding those studying Medicine and Dentistry). This means that your tuition fees will not increase throughout the duration of your studies enabling you to plan your finances effectively.

Study Costs

Paying your tuition fees

If you are a self-financing student, organising the payment of your tuition fees is an essential part of your registration. Setting up your payment plan in good time will give you access to all of the facilities you need to start your course.

You can use a range of payment options to pay your fees, however the University does not accept cash payments.

  • Single payment by credit/debit card using our online payment system, or sterling cheque, or bankers draft, or bank to bank transfer
  • Payment by instalments using the recurring credit card instalment option only
  • If a sponsor agrees to pay your fees the University will invoice your sponsor directly. You must therefore provide the Student Fees Office with an official sponsor letter on letterheaded paper.

5% Early Tuition Fee Payment Discount

For September 2018 entry, the University of Liverpool is delighted to announce a new 5% discount for conditional and unconditional offer holders who make a full fee payment (applicable to first year of study only) for your undergraduate or postgraduate master’s programme before the 15th July 2018, (funds must be cleared into the University of Liverpool account no later than 31st July 2018).

The discount is available to Year 1 students with an international fee status, who join the university directly and not through a joint venture recruitment partnership (for example: Liverpool International College, XJTLU, Law Transfer arrangements in Malaysia etc) where other discount and scholarship packages are in place. If you are sponsored via a third party (e.g. your government, university or commercial organisation etc) you are also not eligible for the 5% reduction because institutional discounts are normally negotiated directly with the sponsor.

The 5% discount will be applied as a refund of the net fee after any relevant scholarships or awards have been applied. It will be issued as a refund in the second semester, so when you join in September 2018, you can expect the payment to be credited to your account from January 2019 onwards.

As soon as your deposit payment has been processed, you will be issued with a Certificate of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) statement as a priority. Once you have accepted your unconditional offer you will receive an email from Flywire, the University's approved payment provider,  informing you how to activate your account and pay your deposit. Your full deposit amount will be deducted from your tuition fee when you register with us. For more information, visit our Fee Deposits page.
