Payment methods and refunds

Deposits and tuition fees may be paid in a number of ways

Debit or credit card payments

You can also pay by debit or credit card. You may be charged for currency conversion or have to pay interest if you do not clear your balance straight away. To pay by debit or credit card visit the website.

Western Union - payment by international bank transfer

We have partnered with Western Union so you can pay your tuition fees by bank transfer in the currency of your choice. You, your parents or your sponsors can pay fees using Western Union's payment portal. We recommend this as the easiest way to pay your fees.

Advantages of paying through Western Union

• You'll be able to track your payment online step-by-step.
• Your sponsors or parents can also pay your fees on your behalf.
• You will pay no transaction charges from Sheffield Hallam or Western Union.

How it works

  • Select the country you are paying from, how much you need to pay and your preferred method of payment
  • Enter your payment details
  • Make a payment online, through your bank or in person

Bank transfer

If you pay by bank transfer it is important to ask the bank to quote your university student reference number, family name and date of birth on the transfer document. You can find your student reference number on your offer letter.

Your bank may charge you for making the transfer and for currency conversion. You should notify us of your intention to pay by bank transfer in your acceptance letter.
