It's important that you know how your tuition fees will be paid before you enrol in September. This may mean you need to apply for a tuition fee loan through Student Finance England or arrange to pay your fees direct to the University. If you do not have your funding in place when you come to enrol at the University you will be asked to pay 25% of your tuition fee before you can enrol.
The Student Finance help desk is available during enrolment; however, any cash payments must be made at the Student Finance cash desk in the Central Services Building on level 8.
The University is situated on the Ring Road right by the town centre. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Railway Station and Bus Station. If you take a taxi - please ask for the University at Queensgate.

Council Tax exemption certificate
Full-time students may be eligible for Council Tax exemption.
Students can request letters addressed to local banks to assist you if you need to open a bank account. Most of the major banks have a branch in the town centre and you will need to specify which bank you are interested in (we need to specify the name of the bank on the letter).
Letters are available on request - please ask at the Help Desk during enrolment. Don't worry if you are unable to collect these letters during the enrolment period.
Once you have received your final statement from the Student Loan Company and returned your signed declaration, we will report your attendance to the Student Loan Company
You can complete the majority of the enrolment process online and will receive information throughout the Summer on how to do this. Please see the further information for Your Next Step - our Pre-enrolment portal.
