Tuition fee deposit
Self-funded international students who require a UK visa to study at the university are required to pay a deposit in order for the university to issue a Confirmation for Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number, which is required in order to apply for a visa. International students can either pay their remaining tuition fees in full at the start of their course or in three instalments, in accordance with these deadlines.
If you are starting your course with us in September 2023 a deposit of £3,000 is payable and the deadlines for the three instalments are:
- 50% of total fees paid by 31 October 2023
- A further 25% of total fees paid by 31 January 2024
- The final 25% of total fees paid by 30 April 2024.
If you are starting your course with us in January 2024 or September 2024 a deposit of £5,000 is required to be paid in order for the university to issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number, with remaining tuition fees to be paid either in full.
If you are starting your course with us in January 2024 the deadlines for the two instalments will be:
- 50% of fee by 28 February 2024
- Remaining balance to be paid by 31 May 2024.
If you are starting your course with us in September 2024 the deadlines for the two instalments will be:
- 50% of fee by end 31 October 2024
- Remaining balance to be paid by 31 January 2025.
The deposit is subject to review, but the minimum amount of £5,000 will still apply from January 2024.
Your tuition fee deposit should be paid using the University of Brighton’s payment service, powered by our partner Flywire, which allows you to pay in the currency of your choice in a simple and secure way.
If you are a national from a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) and you do not have a UK visa which allows you to study at the University of Brighton, you will have to apply for and obtain a student visa to study with us.
The deadline to respond to your conditional or unconditional offer of a place at Brighton will be detailed on the 'Information about your offer' page in Student View, this will normally be two months from the date your offer was made.
If you don’t accept your offer by the deadline, your offer will automatically be withdrawn and you'll no longer be able to take up your place on that course.
If you’re unable to accept your offer by the deadline, please get in touch with us as soon as possible by sending us a message through the 'Your messages' page of Student View.
