Payment Method & Policy

Making a payment

You may select one of the following three methods to make fees and deposit payments:

International Bank Transfer

An International Bank Transfer system (Pay to Study) is available at Bangor to facilitate payment of various fees including deposits, tuition fees, English language courses fees and accommodation fees in your local currency at your local bank. Group payment by our official providers or agents is also possible. Using this service will involve completing the online forms and visiting your bank in person to arrange the transfer. There is no charge for this service.

Please note that this facility is for new international students enrolling on a new course of study. This facility is not available to international students progressing into their second or third year of studies.

Please refer to the Step by Step Student Guide which explains how to make a payment.
