Bank Transfer

If you would like to pay by bank transfer, please make sure you leave plenty of time for the funds to reach the University’s account. If you wish to make payment from an overseas account, we recommend that you use Flywire as a quicker and more cost effective option.

When paying your fees by bank transfer please quote your name and Manchester Met student ID number as a reference.

The University bank details are:

Barclays Business Centre

Sort Code: 20 55 34

Account number: 50603570

Please tell your bank that you will be responsible for any bank charges. This is to ensure that your bank sends us the correct amount.

Please be aware if you do not tell us what you are paying for when you make your payment, we will allocate your payment clearing the oldest balances on your account first.


Options to Pay in Instalments 

Course fees are due in full before your course starts, unless you agree an instalment plan. The main instalment options offered by Manchester Met are Direct Debit and Auto Card Pay.

New International students must make an initial payment of £3000. The easiest and quickest way to pay your initial payment is by credit/debit card online or through Flywire.

If your course starts in September, you will have the option to join the Direct Debit or Auto Card Pay scheme during your online enrolment.

Setting up a Direct Debit allows Manchester Met to automatically take payments from a nominated UK bank account on set dates.

Auto Card Pay is an alternative way to pay your fees in instalments. Regular automatic credit or debit card payments can be made by registering a card, cardholder's email address and contact details. This ensures your account is never overdue. Automatic reminder emails are sent to the cardholder 5 days prior to the payment dates and again after the payment has been collected.

For 2020/21, the standard tuition fee Direct Debit and Auto Card Pay instalment dates are:

23rd October 2020

15th January 2021

29th April 2021
