Important Application Reminders:
- Apply early - You can apply up to 3 months before your course starts. For most courses, this means that you can start the application process in June.
- Registration requirement - At registration you are required to make a tuition fee payment in line with your fee deadline or instalment scheme. This means that if you are taking a career development loan, then this must be fully approved at the time of registration, otherwise you will need to make the initial payment up front to register on your course.
- Loan payment schedule - Please be aware of your loan payment schedule to the University and ensure that you keep up to date with your fee deadlines or instalment scheme. If you are studying a course over more than one year, you will need to ensure that each year's tuition fees are fully paid before continuing onto the next year.
- Early applications are crucial.
