Tuition fee deposit 

If you are sponsored by one of the Latin American funding bodies above, you do not have to pay a tuition fee deposit before beginning your course. 

You will need to present evidence of the funding that you have been awarded to be exempt from paying the tuition fee deposit. Send proof of funding to internationaloffice@leeds.ac.uk and include your name and University of Leeds student ID in the subject.

After you have provided proof of your funding, you will be sent a letter by email to confirm the discount you have been awarded on the tuition fee. You will need to take this letter with you to your visa appointment to present with your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) and other supporting documents.
