If you would like to pay your tuition fees in instalments you will be required to set up a Direct Debit agreement with the University. This can be set up by you, a parent, guardian, relative or friend but must be on a UK bank account. Click here for further information about how to open a UK bank account.
One third of your tuition fees must be paid at registration by any method (credit/debit card, bank draft, cheque, bank transfer). The remaining two thirds will be collected directly from your bank account by Direct Debit.
A Direct Debit is an instruction from you to your bank authorising the University of Manchester to collect fees directly from your account. We will give you advanced notice before any payments are taken or if the terms of the Direct Debit are changed in any way. Once you have set up a Direct Debit your fees will be paid automatically from your account on the instalment dates.

Please note you can only set up a Direct Debit when you complete online registration, so please have all relevant details to hand for when you register.
The dates and amounts of your remaining instalments will be emailed to the account holder. Once your Direct Debit has been set up all the account holder needs to do is ensure they have sufficient cleared funds in their account by close of business on the last working day before the due date.
The Direct Debit can be cancelled by the account holder at any time by contacting their bank.
Amending a Direct Debit?
The Direct Debit account holder, whether that is you or your parent/guardian, can update the account details on an existing Direct Debit by completing a new Direct Debit Mandate Form and returning it to the Income Office; the office is open Mondays & Tuesdays 10am-3pm.
Alternatively the form can be posted to us at the following address:
Income Office Room G.003
University of Manchester
John Owens Building
Please be aware that the University requires ten working days notice of any change prior to the Direct Debit due date.
If you think you might not be able to pay your tuition fee on the due date you need to email email@example.com as soon as possible. Please be aware that the University requires ten working days notice to cancel a Direct Debit.
If the Direct Debit is returned unpaid by the bank, the University will not try to take the instalment again.
Please be aware that if the instalment remains unpaid after the due date a late payment charge of £25 will be added to your student account.
The Direct Debit Guarantee is offered by all banks and building societies that accept instructions to pay by Direct Debit. It protects you if an error occurs in the payment of your Direct Debit. If an error is made by your bank or by the University you are entitled to a full and immediate refund of the amount paid by your bank or building society.
Want to pay in full?
If you don’t want to set up a Direct Debit there are a range of options to pay in full.
