How to pay tuition fees

Find information on paying your deposit and tuition fees below:

Paying your deposit

Once you receive your offer from Regent’s, you’ll need to accept and confirm your place by making a deposit payment, which will be counted towards your tuition fees.

Please note, this payment is non-refundable.

The deposit amount varies by location – and will be recorded on your offer letter. To pay your deposit and accept your place at Regent’s, you’ll need to:

  1. Log into your student account – click the link in your offer letter 
  2. Under ‘Payment/Offer Acceptance’, click ‘deposit payment’
  3. Add details of who’s making this payment, and the payment method 
  4. Review the deposit amount and click ‘continue’ 
  5. Add details of where your payment will come from – which country or region
  6. Confirm your preferred payment method and payee details
  7. Review your transaction and make payment.

If you want to decline your offer, please email [email protected] with your Student ID number and a brief reason as to why you wish to decline.

Paying your tuition fees

Tuition fees for new students can be found on individual course pages. You can also find fees here

Before you enrol – or during the enrolment process – you'll need to pay your first term’s tuition fees in full or set up a payment plan. No matter which option you choose, you will need to do it at least two weeks prior to the start of the term. 

Unfortunately, if you pay less than seven days before the start of the term Regent's can’t guarantee access to your timetable and classes.

To make your first tuition fee payment: 

  1. Log into your student account – click the link in your offer letter
  2. Under Payment/Offer Acceptance, click ‘tuition fees’
  3. You can choose either to pay in full, or set up a payment plan
  4. Add your payee details, country and preferred payment method
  5. Review your transaction and make your payment 

From then on, you’ll pay your tuition fees before the start of each term. An invoice will be generated to indicate how much you’ll need to pay, and you can choose to make the payment in full or set up a payment plan.  

Please note that payments are to be paid online – we can’t accept payments over the phone. We’ve partnered with Flywire to accept payments from more than 240 countries and regions worldwide in more than 130 currencies. This means you can: 

  • Pay by credit or debit card, bank transfer or e-wallet

  • Avoid bank fees and extra charges 
  • Be guaranteed the best exchange rate (if you find a better rate, Flywire will match it) 
  • Track your payment online, in real-time 
  • Get 24/7 multilingual support  
  • Feel confident in the security of your payment

Tuition fee refunds

If a student has a credit balance, Regent's will refund the balance upon request. We can only make a refund to the same account the original payment was made.

For more information, please read the full Refunds Policy. 

Please note, deposit payments for all courses are non-refundable.

Am I eligible for an advance tuition deposit refund?

A. Deposit payments

Deposit payments for all University courses are non-refundable, with the exception of the following circumstances:

1. You cancel within 14 days of paying the deposit. The statutory cancellation period is a period during which time you can change your mind about accepting an offer at the University.

2. If your offer of a place on a course at the University is withdrawn, because you do not meet the academic conditions attached to your offer, and the University is unable to offer you a place on an alternative course. Should you fail to reach
the required level of English, your deposit will be retained and applied to a future period of study as per Deferral of Studies (B).

Visa refusal

3. If a study visa has been refused, students must provide an official refusal letter from the UK immigration authorities to Regent’s University London to request a refund. However, if the visa refusal letter refers to fraudulent, forged or counterfeit documents being submitted as part of the visa application or a visa refusal on the grounds of adverse immigration history not disclosed at the point of an application being submitted to Regent’s University London, the tuition fee deposit will not be refunded. 

To minimize the risk of visa refusal, all students planning to study in the UK are strongly recommended to follow visa advice offered by education agents or official visa agencies in their home country.

Students planning to study in the UK who are not applying through education agents in their country will be offered free visa guidance from a Regent’s University London's Admissions and Student Immigration & Compliance team – providing they have a CAS issued by Regent’s University London.

However, all students should be aware that the final decision for the grant of any visa is made by the UK Home Office. Accordingly Regent’s University London does not accept responsibility of any kind for either the counselling offered by the Regent’s University London Visa Advisor or any decision to reject, defer or otherwise not accept a visa application by the UK Home Office.

4. The University programme for which your deposit was paid, is cancelled, and the University is not able to offer you a suitable alternative.

5. The programme for which you paid a deposit is full and no suitable alternative is available.

If the University is unable to issue you with a CAS, because you do not meet the UKVI requirements a refund of any deposit payment will be made unless:

  • Documentation submitted in support of the CAS is suspected to be fraudulent or credibility concerns are raised as part of the process. In these circumstances, the University will notify you of this decision. There is no right of appeal.
  • Late applications for study and subsequent non-issuance of a CAS will be treated under the Deferral of Studies (B).
  • A cancellation charge of £500 will be retained by the University.  

B. Deferral of studies

If you decide to defer your place on a course, the deposit payment will be held and applied to the period of study from the next available intake point of the programme for which you have deferred your place. If you fail to enrol at the next available intake point the deposit will be lost.

All requests for refunds due to visa refusal must be submitted in writing to the Regent’s University London admissions office together with a copy of the Student’s passport and the visa refusal letter [email protected]

Policy Date December 2021 – effective from Spring 2022 entry points

Further information

Students undertaking a term that carries 40 or more credits will be invoiced at the full rate. Students taking fewer than 40 credits will be charged just 50% of the standard fee. 

Undergraduate students who are resitting modules won’t be charged for that term. Postgraduate students who are retaking modules during an additional term (or during their dissertation term) will be charged based on the weighting of the module.
