Tuition fees cover the cost of education and research. All students, except those being sponsored by an external organisation, pay their tuition fees direct to the University.
You can pay tuition fees in the following ways:
We prefer students to pay by direct debit, but alternatively accept payments online by credit/debit card. You will need to register online and then wait until your invoice is issued, normally the next working day, before you can pay or set up a payment plan.
To make a payment or set up a payment plan, visit the MyBristol portal Fees and Funding channel. The deadline for setting up a payment plan is 13 October.
If you set up a payment plan you need do nothing further for the rest of the academic year, unless we contact you. Payment will be taken automatically on the due dates.
If you set up an online payment plan last year and wish to continue paying by the same method, you must set up a new plan for the new academic year.

Whichever payment method you use, you can pay the full amount for the upcoming year in one go. Payment can be made immediately but the latest date for payment in full is the 24th October.

The University is unable to accept payments originating from the following list of sanctioned countries and regions:
The funds may be restricted, returned or declined. In the event that a refund of fees is due from the University of Bristol, the processing restrictions will also apply to those transactions.
If your tuition fees are due to be paid by an external organisation such as the NHS, a government department, charity or company, you must provide evidence of your sponsorship by supplying the Income Office with a copy of your sponsorship confirmation document or by completing a sponsorship authorisation form (PDF, 35kB).
Please ensure that the document has been signed by an authorised representative of the sponsoring organisation, and send it to the Income Office no later than the start of the academic year. Once you have registered, the Income Office will issue your sponsor with an invoice for your tuition fees.
The University will only continue to recognise an organisation as your sponsor if payments are made promptly. If you experience problems with your sponsorship arrangements, you will ultimately become responsible for paying your own fees.
If you are having difficulty paying your fees, and have missed or are late with a payment, you should contact the Income Office in the first instance. You may also wish to speak to the Student Funding Office, your personal tutor or hall warden, or to the Advice and Representation team at the Students’ Union.
Staff will assist where they can, but if you fail to pay your fees the University may apply sanctions, ranging from administration fees or interest charges, to exclusion from the University (see late or non-payment of fees section).
If you are suffering ongoing financial hardship, or have any queries about student funding, please contact the Student Funding Office.
You will not be permitted to register for your next year of study until you have cleared any outstanding tuition fee debts or have made arrangements with the Income Office to do so.
If you have outstanding tuition or bench fee debts a month before the start of the relevant degree ceremonies period, you will not be permitted to graduate.
The University has a duty to inform the Home Office of money owed by international students in respect of tuition fees. If you fail to provide evidence to the Home Office of your ability to pay outstanding fees, your visa may not be extended.
If you have had to leave the University during the academic year because of unpaid tuition fees, you may be reinstated on your course if you clear your debt before the end of the academic year. However, if your absence means you are behind with your studies, you may have to repeat parts of the course, thereby incurring further fees..
You may be liable for an administration charge of if your debt is referred to our debt collection agency.
Receipts for payment by all methods are available to view and print from the MyBristol portal in the Fees and Funding channel.
