International students - general fee payment information



Tuition fee deposits


Undergraduate - International applicants

International applicants are required to pay a tuition fee deposit of £2,000 by 31 July 2016 in order for a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) letter to be issued.

Postgraduate taught - International applicants

International applicants who need a CAS letter are required to pay a deposit of £2,000 by 31 July 2016.

In addition, applicants to the following programmes have to pay an early acceptance deposit of £,1000 by the deadline stated in their offer letter, in order to secure their place:

  • MSc International Management
  • MSc Petroleum Geosciences
  • MSc Business Information Systems
  • MA International Television Industries
  • MA Producing Film and Television

Should the early acceptance deposit not be received by the deadline given in the offer letter, the application will be withdrawn.   

Applicants who are being sponsored can negotiate an extension to the deposit deadline if they are unable to get a letter from their sponsor in time to meet the deadline.

Deposits are only refundable in exceptional circumstances, such as you failing to meet the academic conditions of your offer or failing to obtain a visa for your course.  For more information, please see the tuition fee deposit refund policy.

The deposit will be allocated against the tuition invoice once it has been created and will be taken as payment towards your full fee payment or your first instalment.

Early payment discounts

Students with personal tuition fee liabilities enrolling on standard degree programmes can receive an early payment discount on their personal liability.

You can receive an early payment discount if we receive your full fees minus the deposit and if online sign-up has been completed 21 days before you enrol. The Early Payment deadline date for students enrolling in September 2016 is Thursday 1st September.

Both steps must be fulfilled to be eligible for the discount.

Tuition fee instalments

International students beginning a new course in September 2016 will have the option to pay their tuition fee in two equal instalments.  

The first instalment must be paid in full before or at enrolment although we encourage you to make this payment before the visa letter is issued. Fee payment to enrol for 2016-17 must be made by the 19th September 2016.

The second payment will be due during the first week of the second term in January 2016

If a third party (e.g. employer or funding body) is paying part, or all of your fees, Royal Holloway must see the original letter confirming the level of your support, before you start your programme.

It is important that this letter contains the following onformation;

  • The name of the programme to be studied at Royal Holloway
  • The amount of the sponsorship i.e the full course fee
  • The period of sponsorship i.e for how many years
  • The name and address or email address to which the invoice should be sent

The letter should be sent to us as soon as possible. You can email a copy of the original letter to Student Administration or post your letter to: Student Administration,, Royal Holloway, University of London, TW20 0EX.

An invoice will then be issued to your sponsor once you are fully enrolled.
