Payment in Instalments (Undergraduate Fees):

Students may pay fees in two instalments. Where a student opts to pay in instalments, 50% of fees must be paid at the time of registration. Instalment 2 is due by 31 January. Failure by a student to pay outstanding fees will result in services being withdrawn. Students with fees owing to the Institute will not be permitted to register until such time as the outstanding fees are paid in full. Final year students with outstanding fees will not be recorded as a graduate and no complete results or complete academic record will be issued, until full payment of all outstanding fees is made.

The Institute may offer a facility to pay in instalments outside this general scheme where financial hardship is demonstrated or for specific programmes or student cohorts. Determination of eligibility of students for payment by instalment resides with the Fee Collection Committee (See Section 9 of the Procedures for Collection of Student Fees) for full-time students and the Lifelong Learning Manager for part-time students in consultation with other Institute personnel as appropriate.

Students who miss an instalment payment date may have services withdrawn.
