The course costs £250 a week for 21 hours per week, or £200 a week for 15 hours per week (morinings only).

The following methods of payment are acceptable for deposits:

(a) Cheque or draft drawn on a UK Clearing Bank (see Note below for cheques/drafts not drawn on a UK Clearing Bank).
(b) Electronic funds transfer from your bank directly into the University bank account quoting the student ID number and full name as a reference.

Cheques/drafts not drawn on a UK Clearing Bank

In the event that a cheque or bankers draft is not drawn on a UK Clearing Bank this could create very significant delays before the University is able to either confirm receipt of payment or process any refunds that may subsequently become due. Students will remain liable for payment until the University is able to confirm receipt of payment, which it will be unable to confirm until “cleared” funds are received to the University’s bank account.
