To complete the financial aspect of your registration, the University needs to know who will be paying your tuition fees. A sponsorship letter is required if payment is to be made by a third party sponsor (e.g. a charity, a commercial organisation, an international organisation or Student Finance).

Student Finance

If you are receiving funding from Student Finance, please send a copy of the page entitled 'University or College Payment Advice' to:

Email: slc@manchester.ac.uk
Address: Student Services Centre, Burlington Street, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL


Internal sponsors/awards

If you are being sponsored by a research council, University of Manchester scholarship, or School bursary that covers the payment of your tuition fees then your School will be responsible for entering the payment details directly in to the student system.


External sponsors

If you are being sponsored by an external organisation (eg charity, commercial organisation, embassy) please send a copy of your sponsorship letter in advance of your registration date, marked 'For the attention of the Student Payments and Registration Team' and send it to:

Email: sponsorletters@manchester.ac.uk
