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 Convera to allow you to pay in your local currency through a bank near you. We'll then receive the full GBP amount.

CIBC and Convera 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.

Before progressing further, please note that payments originating in the following countries cannot be made using Convera:

  • Afghanistan
  • Belarus
  • Crimea Region (Ukraine, Russia)
  • Cuba
  • Iran
  • North Korea
  • Syria
  • Venezuela
  • Special Designated Nationals (SDNs)

IBAN number: GB71NWBK01065747125160
Swift Code: NWBKGB2L

Direct Debits – to pay in instalments

If you would like to pay your tuition fees in instalments you'll be required to complete a Direct Debit with the University. This can be set up by you, a parent, guardian, relative or friend but must be on a UK bank account.

Please note you can only set up a Direct Debit for tuition fees when you complete step 10 of online registration, so please have all relevant details to hand for when you register. For further information on Direct Debits please visit our webpage Direct Debit agreements.

Online card payment – for prepayments and non-registered students

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

If you want to make a prepayment for The University of Manchester Worldwide you can pay below:

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 Convera, you can take advantage of low foreign exchange rates only available to The University of Manchester.

If you still wish to pay by bank transfer, you can download the University's bank account details (PDF, 267KB). These bank details are confidential and must not be shared with any third party. Please take care, as money transferred directly to the University without using our official intermediaries is done so at your own risk.  

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 whose 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.
