International applicants who require a student visa to enter and study in the UK will need to pay a tuition fee deposit of £2,000 by 30 June 2018 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.

In addition, applicants to the following programmes have to pay a programme acceptance deposit of £1,000 (international) and £400 (Home/EU) by the deadline stated in their offer letter, in order to secure their place:

  • MSc International Management
  • MSc International Management (Marketing)
  • MSc Petroleum Geoscience
  • MSc Business Information Systems
  • MA International Television Industries
  • MA Producing Film and Television
  • MSc Clinical Psychology

Should the programme acceptance deposit not be received by the deadline given in the offer letter, the application may be withdrawn.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. Please contact the Admissions team.

The deposit 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 2018 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 2018/19 must be made by 24 September 2018.

The second payment will be due during the first week of the second term in January 2019.

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.
