Sponsorship by your employer

If all or part of your tuition fees will be paid by a sponsor, please ask your sponsor to provide a completed Sponsorship form (SP1), so that after you have completed online registration, we can send them an invoice for your fees. You or your employer will need to send the SP1 form to income@city.ac.uk before you can complete your online registration. Sponsorship confirmation is required for each year of study, not just in year one.

If your sponsor is only paying a portion of your tuition fees, you will need to pay the balance. The following are examples of how your contributions would be paid. Please contact us for information on any other combinations of loan funding.

Example 1

If your tuition fees are £10,000.00 per year and your employer is paying 100% of your tuition fees, you will not be required to make any payments to register and your employer will be invoiced after you have completed registration

Example 2

If your tuition fees are £10,000.00 per year, you have paid a £2,000.00 deposit and your employer is paying 50% of your tuition fees, you will need to pay fees as follows:

  • £500.00 immediately to register *
  • £2,500.00 for your second instalment

£5,000.00 will be invoiced to your employer after you have completed registration.

*Your £2,000.00 deposit has been deducted from your first instalment.

Example 3

If your tuition fees are £10,000.00 per year, you have paid a £2,000.00 deposit and your employer is paying 25% of your tuition fees per year, you will need to pay fees as follows:

  • £1,750.00 immediately to register *
  • £3,750.00 for your second instalment

£2,500.00 will be invoiced to your employer after you have completed registration.

*Your £2,000.00 deposit has been deducted from your first instalment

Example 4

If your tuition fees are £10,000.00 per year, you have paid a £2,000.00 deposit, you have received a £1,000.00 Scholarship from the university and your employer is paying 25% of your tuition fees per year, you will need to pay fees as follows:

  • £1,750.00 immediately to register *
  • £2,750.00 for your second instalment **

£2,500.00 will be invoiced to your employer after you have completed registration.

*Your £2,000.00 deposit has been deducted from your first instalment
**Your £1,000.00 Scholarship has been deducted from your second instalment

Sponsors cannot pay by instalments, they must pay within 30 days of our invoice date.

City will contact you if we encounter problems in receiving payment from your sponsor. If your sponsor does not pay your fees, you will become responsible for the full fee. Please note that only registered companies will be accepted as sponsors. If your sponsorship arrangements change and you have a new employer, you should complete a new SP1 form and send it to the Finance Office as soon as possible.
