There are different ways to pay your fees depending on the course you'll be studying. If you have any questions about making a payment, please contact us at

Paying for postgraduate pre-sessional courses starting in July or August

If you're studying a content based pre-sessional programme starting in July or August you won't be issued with an invoice unless you're a sponsored student and have provided a valid sponsor letter.

If you're a self funded student you must use the amount quoted on your offer letter to make a payment.

Because you're registering for less than one academic year, you must pay 100% of your fees before or on the day of registration.

If you've already paid a tuition fee deposit this can be deducted from the amount you pay.

Make a payment now.

Please note, after you receive an offer for a pre-sessional course starting in July or August, if you require a Tier 4 visa you will be asked to pay a deposit before you are issued with a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).

Paying for all other Language Centre courses

If you are studying one of the following courses, you can read about how to pay your tuition fees below:

  • undergraduate pre-sessional courses
  • postgraduate pre-sessional courses starting in October, January and April
  • general English courses

When to pay your course fees

We will send you an invoice by email for your English language course fees four weeks before your course starts. Once you receive the invoice, you'll need to pay the fees in full before the course start date. Please do not make a payment until you have received your invoice.

If you do not pay your fees in advance, you may receive a late payment charge of £50 and will not be able to register as a student of the University of Leeds or attend classes until all fees are received.

Paying by card

You can pay your fees online using a credit or debit card. 

To pay an invoice, select Product Catalogue > General Debtors > Invoice Payment. Please supply your invoice number when prompted.
