Making a payment

Do you need to make a payment to the University? We have everything you need to know about what you can pay for, how to pay and accepted currencies.

Whether you're a student or making a payment on a student's behalf, we're here to help make it as easy as possible for you. 

International students – pay in your home currency

We've partnered with CIBC and Western Union (WUBS) to allow you to pay in your local currency through a bank near you. We'll then receive the full GBP amount.

CIBC and Western Union may not always offer the same foreign exchange rates so you should look at both and then use the one offering the best exchange rate for you.

There are a range of payment options available depending on your home country, although bank transfers are the most widely accepted.

Online card payment – for prepayments and non-registered students

If you don’t have any outstanding fees but want to make a prepayment or deposit then you are welcome to.

Direct Debits – to pay in instalments

If you would like to pay your tuition or accommodation fees in instalments you'll 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.

You can set up a Direct Debit now on your MyManchester account.

Online store – for short courses, conferences and other products

You can use our online store to pay for short courses, conferences and other products. 

All major payment card brands are accepted.

Payment by bank transfer

Bank transfers may take up to ten days to be reflected on your account  for this reason we prefer that you use one of the alternative payment methods displayed on this page.

If you use our official payment providers CIBC or Western Union you can take advantage of low foreign exchange rates which are only available to The University of Manchester.

If you still wish to pay by bank transfer then you can download the University's bank account details (PDF, 267KB). You'll need your student username and password to access the PDF. 

When making a bank transfer always start the payment reference with your student ID number. If you don’t include this number we won’t know who’s account to credit.

Payment in cash

The University of Manchester doesn't accept cash payment under any circumstances.

Please don't arrive at the University with large volumes of cash.
