Everything you need to know about paying your deposit and course fees before you arrive in the UK.
Information on fees and how to pay, previously provided in the Notes for payment, is now provided in the Fees & Charges Regulations. For 2018-2019, sections relevant to international are 1.5.2 and 1.6.7 and payment methods are on page 14 and 15. Other useful information on fees, discounts and scholarships is available below and here.
You have a number of options for paying from your own country.
If you are funding your own study, you must pay a deposit before you get the confirmation of acceptance for studies number which you need to apply for a visa. We will let you know how much you need to pay as a deposit in your conditional offer. If you are refused a visa, your deposit will be refunded.
If a Pre-Sessional English condition is included in your offer and you are due to take up a place on a Pre-Sessional English course, Teesside University requires you to pay the Pre-Sessional English course fee in full and a main course deposit to assist you in getting a visa. These payments should reach the University at least three weeks prior to the start date of the Pre-Sessional English course to allow sufficient time for your updated offer letter to be issued and your visa application processed.
You must pay £4000 of your net course fees before you enrol. You may have already paid this as a deposit. You can pay the rest in up to seven monthly instalments. International students who pay fees in full before enrolment are entitled to receive a £500 discount.
Please note - for students enrolling on a 2 year master's degree, paying £7,000 a year, you are entitled to a £250 discount for each year that you pay your fee prior to enrolment.
Before we can give you a confirmation of acceptance for studies we must have confirmation from your sponsor that they will pay your fees. We only accept letters from approved sponsors. You must bring your original copy of this letter with you when you enrol.
The University's finance office is on the ground floor of Middlesbrough Tower. If you are making a payment or collecting a bursary, please bring your TUSC (also known as your student card) with you. You can only pay by cash, cheque, credit/debit card, postal order or bankers draft.
