Ways to pay

There are different payment methods available to you to pay your fees.

Pay in full

Pay your fees in full via your financial statement. 

This is the preferred method of payment for all students. 

Pay in instalments

Set up an instalment plan to pay in smaller amounts throughout the year. You can either set up a direct debit or a recurring card payment. There are deadlines to set up a plan, so make sure you do this in time. 

You must set up your instalment plan each academic year, even if you pay by the same method each year.
