Postgraduate study

How to pay

The tuition fees for postgraduate programmes can vary, so we recommend you check the costs before applying. Tuition fees bands are listed on each taught degree and research degree page. Fees are charged based on the number of credits you are studying for, so fees will be lower for a postgraduate Certificate or Diploma.

Payment structure

Tuition fees are billed in November during the start of your first term. You can pay in full by a set date, which is usually mid-November time, or you can choose to pay in three equal installments, with deadlines in November, January and May.

How to make a payment

There are a number of ways to pay your tuition fees. The simplest method is via our secure online facility. There is no charge to pay by debit or debit card. Alternatively, you can set up a direct debit. For more information about paying your tuition fees, please visit our finance pages.

You may be asked to pay a deposit to confirm a scholarship or bursary that has been offered to you by Loughborough University London. Details on how to pay your deposit are available on our Scholarship Tuition Fee Deposit page.

If you are not receiving a scholarship or bursary you are still able to make a deposit against your tuition fees of a minimum of £2,500. If you are an international student the payment of a deposit can aid with your visa application. Details on how to pay your deposit are available on our "Commitment Deposit" page.
