Tuition and accommodation fees can be paid online or by international bank transfer.

Paying online

You can pay your own fees online using Campus Connect.

Parents or third parties can pay fees using our EPay service.

Online payments appear on your account by 6pm the next working day.

Please note: we do not accept American Express and Diners cards.

Paying via bank transfer

We offer a quick and secure way to make international bank transfers in partnership with Western Union. This cannot be used for UK Bank Transfers.

When making a payment yourself, ask your bank to quote:

  • Student’s name.
  • Student’s nine digit reference number.
  • What the payment is for (e.g tuition installment, full fee, accommodation)
  • Make the transfer with all handling charges for the account of the payer.

Make sure your payment is processed by your bank at least five working days before it is due.

Royal Holloway is recognised by a large number of scholarship bodies for sponsorship of students' courses. You may alternatively have acquired sponsorship through your company or another funding body.

If a third party, e.g government embassy, employer or recognised funding body (other than Student Finance England), is paying part, or all, of your fees we must see the original letter confirming the level of your support, before you start your programme.

If, at enrolment, the online information is showing the full fee is payable by you, you should still sign up online.  However, you won’t be able to complete your enrolment until a formal sponsor's guarantee to make payment to Royal Holloway has been seen and recorded by us.

Please email a copy of the original letter to the Student Fees team. An invoice will be issued to your sponsor once you are fully enrolled by end of November. 

Please note that Royal Holloway does not produce sponsor invoices for accommodation fees. If a sponsor has agreed to pay the fees for your accommodation please forward a copy of the student invoice to them for payment. You can download a copy of the invoices for the current academic year from the finance tab of Campus Connect.


If you're an undergraduate funding your tuition fees via a loan or grant, Royal Holloway will receive payment of your fees directly from Student Finance England. 

Just make sure you sign up with Student Finance England as soon as possible after making your university applications, and follow the guidance on government loans or grants.


If you are using a Master’s Loan from Student Finance England to pay your fees you must forward a copy of the approved loan confirmation to the Student Fees team before you can complete enrolment.

Make sure you sign up with Student Finance England and follow the guidance on enrolment.

Research Degrees

If you are using a Doctoral Loan from Student Finance England to pay your fees you must ensure you advise us before you start your course.

Make sure you sign up with Student Finance England and follow the guidance on enrolment.
