    For UK, EU and international students

    During the vacation period before you start your course, you will be sent an email containing instructions on how to complete your online enrolment and provide your tuition fee payment details online. Tuition fees should be paid in pounds sterling. 

    Research Student Enrolment is administered by the Research Degrees Team and all Research Students will be sent information about annual enrolment in July.

    Remember UK/EU applicants for undergraduate degree courses don't have to pay their tuition fees upfront. They can choose to repay their fees after they graduate by taking a fee loan.

    Paying in instalments

    You can pay your tuition fees in full at the start of the academic year or in two equal instalments at the start of each semester - in September and January.

     Instalments for 2016 - 2017

    • Semester 1 is due on 12 September 2016
    • Semester 2 is due on 25 January 2017

    If your course follows a termly calendar your fees will be due for payment on 12 September 2016, 25 January 2017 and 12th April 2017

    Tuition fee discount for international students

    If you are an international student on a full-time undergraduate degree course and you pay the full year's tuition fees at enrolment you will receive a £250 discount.


    If you have a sponsor, such as a commercial or charitable organisation who is paying your fees, you will need to provide an official letter of sponsorship from them. This letter should include: the invoice address, name of student and amount of sponsorship. We will then invoice them for the full fee amount giving them 30 days to pay. Please note that if your sponsor fails to pay your fees you will be liable.

    Parents, family members or friends who may be paying your tuition fees are not classed as sponsors.


    If you formally withdraw within four weeks of the start of the semester we will normally refund tuition fees.

    The refund policy does not apply to students of Oxford Brookes International or students who go on a residential course within the first four weeks of a semester.
