Please ensure when making payment of your deposit that you use the student number which has been allocated against the course for which the deposit condition is outstanding. This is particularly relevant in the case where a student may also be undertaking a Pre-Sessional English Course.

*Please note that for students who are being sponsored it will be necessary to provide Finance with a copy of your signed sponsorship letter by scanning and emailing it to quoting your registration number.

In accordance with University regulations, all students become liable for payment of the full tuition fee on registration.

Some UK students (e.g. many Scottish-domiciled undergraduate students) will have their tuition fee paid on their behalf by an  awards agency but it is important that such students make a prompt application to the relevant authority for fee support (see below). Please also note that applications for fee support from award agencies must be made every year – awards are not renewed automatically. In most cases, this application process will also allow undergraduate students to apply for a student loan if this is required.

New undergraduate students from England, Wales or Northern Ireland who are liable to a pay the RUK tuition fee rate can apply for support from the Strathclyde Access Bursary.  Information on the Bursary can be found on this link 

Award Agencies

UK students applying for support from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) or from the relevant division of Student Finance England, Northern Ireland or Wales are expected to submit applications to the relevant award agency at the earliest opportunity.  Your registration is permitted on condition that you have applied for and expect to receive funding from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) or for continuing LEA students only - another Local Education Authority in the United Kingdom.

Please note if you do not receive an award letter by 10 November 2017 which covers the required Tuition Fee you will be personally liable for the full amount or any remaining balance.
