If you are a self-funded international student from a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), after you have applied and been offered a place on a course, you will need to pay a tuition fee deposit of £1,500 before we can issue you with a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number. You need a CAS number in order to make your visa application.
If you are starting a course with us in September 2021 you must provide us with your tuition fee deposit by 31 August 2021.
You can pay your tuition fee deposit online or by using the bank transfer service partnered with Western Union, which allows you to pay in your local currency.
The deposit is generally considered non-refundable, but will be refunded in certain circumstances.
Details of students who are exempt from paying the fee deposit and the deposit refund policy can be viewed here.
Students whose ability to take up study at Brighton is disrupted as a result of COVID-19 will have their deposits refunded in full if the request to refund is after CAS is assigned and before application for VISA.
