Direct Debits


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.

 

What is a 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.

Setting up the Direct Debit

You can set up a Direct Debit through your MyManchester account.

 

What happens next?

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 the Direct Debit at any time via the student’s My Manchester account. Please be aware that the University requires ten working days notice of any change prior to the Direct Debit due date.

 

Can't pay a Direct Debit?

If you think you might not be able to pay your tuition fee on the due date you need to contact the Student Services Centre via email at tuitionfeedirectdebit@manchester.ac.uk 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.

 

Direct Debit Guarantee

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.
