Tuition fee deposits

Undergraduates

If you are an International student who needs a Tier 4 visa to enter and study in the UK, you will need to pay the £3,000 tuition fee deposit before a Confirmation of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number can be issued. We recommend you pay the deposit as soon as possible, and at least three months before the start of your course. Your CAS number can only be issued during the three months before the start of your course.

You pay using your local currency here.

Your deposit will be taken as a payment towards your full fee payment or your first instalment.

Tuition fee instalments

International students beginning a new course in September 2020 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 2020/21 must be made by 21 September 2020.

The second payment will be due during the first week of the second term in January 2021.

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.
