Financial Support for International and European Union Students

To support your study, EU students can apply for a tuition fee loan and there are discount schemes available to international students.

European Union Students

EU students can apply for a student loan for fees, also known as a tuition fee loan.

International (Non-EU) Students

As an international student, there are two discount schemes from which you could benefit.

Prompt payment discount scheme

International Prompt Payment 2019/20‌‌

If you're an international applicant who has an unconditional acceptance letter, you can reduce your tuition fee by 10% with our Prompt Payment Discount Scheme.

All international students who pay the deposit and comply with relevant payment instructions could claim the Prompt Payment Discount.

To take advantage of the Scheme:

  • Either pay the remainder of your tuition fee by the first instalment date; or
  • Enter into an instalment agreement with the Finance Department to pay the remainder of your tuition fee. You will need to set up this instalment agreement during enrolment and no later than the first instalment date

Failure to make payment by the necessary dates will result in the loss of Prompt Payment Discount entitlement and withdrawal of the instalment facility, and the full outstanding balance of tuition fee (including Prompt Payment deduction) will become payable immediately.

The University offers a generous 20% Loyalty Discount to students progressing from an undergraduate programme to a taught postgraduate programme, where both courses are studied at the  University of Wolverhampton.
