International applicants who require a student visa to enter and study in the UK will need to pay a tuition fee deposit of £3,000 by 30 June 2019 to fully reserve a place on their chosen programme. This deposit is also required before a CAS number can be issued for a Tier 4 visa application.

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. Please contact the Admissions team.

Home and EU applicants will be required to pay a tuition fee deposit of £100 to fully secure their place on the course.

Deposits will be allocated against the tuition invoice once it’s created and taken as payment towards your full fee payment or your first instalment.

Tuition fee instalments

International students beginning a new course in September 2019 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 CAS letter is issued. Fee payment to enrol for 2019/20 must be made by 23 September 2019.

The second payment will be due during the first week of the second term in January 2020.

Sponsored applicants

Where a student is having their tuition fees paid by a sponsor, the sponsor must provide a letter containing the following information:

  • The name of the applicant
  • The name of the programme to be studied at Royal Holloway
  • The amount of the sponsorship being paid direct to Royal Holloway 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.

This letter should be received by the deposit deadline stated in the offer letter, where applicable.

If, at enrolment, the online information is showing the full fee is payable by you, you should still complete online sign up but it will not be possible for you to complete your enrolment fully until a formal sponsor's guarantee to make payment to Royal Holloway has been seen and recorded by us.

You can either present your sponsor letter at enrolment or you can email a copy of the original letter to Student Administration.

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