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 £3,000 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 2020 you must provide us with your tuition fee deposit by 31 August 2020.
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.
You don't need to pay the tuition fee deposit if:
- you are a University of Brighton alumnus
- you are a University of Brighton International College alumnus
- you have funding from an ‘official financial sponsor’ as defined by the Tier 4 immigration rules e.g. your government, the UK government, or an international scholarship agency.
Students whose ability to take up study at Brighton is disrupted as a result of Covid-19 will have their deposits refunded in full.
