Accepting your place

To ensure your place is confirmed, you will need to complete and return the acceptance form along with your deposit payment of £1,000 on or before the deadline date in your offer letter.
On receipt of your acceptance form and payment, your Admissions Officer will contact you by email to confirm your place.
Note that the deposit is part of your tuition fee and the amount you pay will be automatically deducted from the full tuition fee during the registration process.

Deposit payment for A&F division programmes

Programmes include:

  • MSc Accounting
  • MSc Accounting and Finance
  • MSc Finance
  • MSc Quantitative Finance

When accepting your place on one of the programmes listed above, all students are required to pay a deposit of £1,000. This payment will go towards your tuition fee and will reserve your place on the course.


A second deposit payment for the courses listed above of £1,000 is due by 1 April 2017. It can also be paid in advance at any time before this date.

Receipt of the second deposit confirms your place on your course and will go towards your tuition fee. If the deadline date for accepting your place is after 1 April 2017, you will be required to pay both deposit amounts at the time of acceptance, ie £2,000.

How to pay the deposit

Due to the competition for places and limited availability, our courses require a deposit of £1000 to cover non-recoverable costs and secure your place. The deposit will be deducted from your tuition fees when you register on the course.

Pay by credit/debit card using our secure online payment facility >>

If your payment is successful you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of your payment. We accept the following cards: MasterCard, VISA, Delta, Maestro/Switch, Visa Electron, Solo, JCB.

Refund Policy
The deposit is non-refundable, except in the following situations:

  • you fail to meet the conditions of your offer (see below for further information); and/or
  • you are refused a visa or entry clearance to enter the UK (proof must be submitted)

If an offer has been made specifying an English Language condition which you do not meet, the Admissions Team will require the official certificate of an English Language test taken after the date of offer as evidence that you have attempted to meet your offer conditions for a refund to be approved. The English Language test certificate provided with your application documents will not be accepted as proof that you have attempted to meet your offer conditions as such a certificate will predate the offer.

If an offer has been made specifying an academic condition, the Admissions Team will require the official university documentation showing that you have not met this academic condition from the institution at which you have studied, as evidence for a refund to be approved.

The Admissions Team reserves the right to refuse to refund of any deposit that does not meet with the requirements outlined above.
