Paying your university deposit
Find out all you need to know about paying your deposit.
When you accept your offer to study with us, you will need to pay a deposit.
The deposit is listed on your Letter of Offer. Usually, it includes a payment towards your tuition fee and a fee for Overseas Student Health Cover.
If you are a sponsored student who receives financial assistance from a government, organisation or company, you are not required to pay a deposit.
How to pay
The easiest way to pay your deposit is through Convera. They provide secure online payments via credit card (Visa or MasterCard), telegraphic transfer or online payment options such as UnionPay or AllPay.
It’s the fastest option, you can pay with your own currency at a fixed rate (for 72 hours), and if you pay by telegraphic transfer, you’ll pay no transfer charges.
Once you’ve completed your payment through Convera, you’ll need to submit your Offer Acceptance Form with:
a copy of the Convera online receipt if you paid by credit card; or
the bank receipt and a copy of Convera’s confirmation email if you paid by telegraphic transfer.
For advice on how to use the Convera payment portal, please read the student guide.
Note: Convera does not process payments to, from or involving resident of Iran, North Korea, Cuba and the Crimea, Luhansk and Donetsk provinces of Ukraine. More information about sanctions and potential restrictions payments that can be processed is available through the Convera website.
Other payment options
You may also pay by wire remittance; however, it is a long process and is not recommended if you require urgent visa documentation. If you choose this option, clearly indicate your family name, given name and your student ID number on your wire remittance receipt.
You must attach a copy of your receipt to this form and return it to us, so we can identify your payment in our bank account. All bank charges for this remittance will be your responsibility.
Confirmation of enrolment
Once you have accepted your offer and paid your deposit, we will provide you with your Confirmation of Enrolment.
