The university accepts payment of fees for academic year 2012–13 in a number of forms via the online registration and payment system. Please note: cash will not be accepted.
These can be used to make payment via the university's online registration and payments procedures.
If payment is subsequently not honoured or reclaimed, the full undiscounted fee and a £50 penalty charge is payable.
Students can pay during online registration. In addition, continuing students can pay online via their student portal accounts, under the 'My Support' tab. Click the 'Pay fees online' link.
If you are transferring funds to pay for tuition fees, you need to send them to:

Account name: University of Greenwich Number 1 Account
Account number: 00904244

The electronic transfer must include your name and student ID number. Please ensure that you retain a copy of the transfer in case any difficulties are encountered during the bank to university transfer.
These must be made payable to University of Greenwich.
Personal cheques are discouraged as these will significantly delay your registration and subsequently the release of any student loans. However, if this is the only method by which you can pay your tuition fees, please send your cheque to the address shown at the end of this section. Please remember to include your name and student ID on the back of the cheque. If payment is not honoured on first presentation, the full undiscounted fee and a £50 penalty charge are payable.
Students may receive a discount on tuition fees if they make full payment before set dates in the academic year dependant on their time of registration. This does not apply to payments made by tuition fee loans.
This discount is not applied to any other fees. Payment for full-time postgraduate one-year programmes starting in January will receive the 5 per cent discount only if the full annual fee for the programme is paid at the time of registration.
The charge for the whole year of study relates to the fee when registering at the start of the programme. The discount applies only to fees paid in full at the first opportunity of registration in September or January, unless there has been an administrative delay on the part of the university. If a student’s programme does not start on either of these main dates, the discount will apply only if paid, within four weeks of the start of the programme. The discount applies only to tuition fees and only after all other discounts have been deducted.
A further 10 per cent discount on tuition fees is available for students who progress to a taught non-government/research funded postgraduate programme having completed either an undergraduate degree programme, certain short course programmes or an exchange programme, at one of the university’s main campuses, Partner, Network or collaborative colleges. This discount excludes PGCE/CertEd and Diploma of Architecture programmes and programmes such as the MOst and MPharm, which attract undergraduate fees and is applicable to the fee due after any other allowances have been deducted.
Any deposit paid is non-refundable and will be deducted from your fees on registration.
If you cannot pay the full amount of the tuition fee at registration, the university will accept two instalments. The first is at the time of registration (which must be 50 per cent or more of the balance of the full year fee after any discounts, deposits and registration fees are applied). For September starters, the second payment for the balance will be due before the last Friday in January; January starters will be expected to make the second payment before the last Friday in May.
Student debtors are subject to action or restrictions as laid out in the university’s debt policy. This applies to any debt to the university such as tuition fees, hall of residence fees and fines for the replacement of library books.
Please note where a payment by cheque or card is not honoured on the first presentation or is subsequently reclaimed a £50 charge is payable as well as the outstanding fee payment. Students will also have an restriction placed on their account which will limit their access to certain university services and may be asked to make an appointment to see the Head of Student Finance.
Where a student needs to retake a course, a pro rata tuition charge will be payable, depending on the number of credits studied.
A refund of tuition fees may be available if a student’s withdrawal or interruption conforms to the university’s withdrawal/interruption policy and refund policy. Any monies due will be returned to the payee c/o the home address on the university’s database.
You cannot be admitted as a registered student of the university until acceptable arrangements for payment of fees are agreed. If an employer is sponsoring you, you should immediately send a letter of confirmation or fax a copy of the letter directly to the address at the end of this section. Alternately, you can bring this letter with you when you attend the university, although this could delay your registration process. However, please note that students are responsible for any fee payment not made by the sponsor. Letters of sponsorship from individuals (e.g. parents, relatives and friends) are not acceptable.
Should you have any queries, please contact the finance officer at your campus Student Centre.
All refunds will be returned to the payee and where payments have originated from outside of the UK monies will be returned to the overseas postal address or account from which it originated.
