For UK and EU self-funding* students, both full-time and part-time, we are happy to offer the option of spreading the cost of your tuition fees over three instalments throughout your year of study interest free. 

Should you wish to spread the cost of your tuition fees over 10 instalments, please contact our finance department directly. If you are a current student of Northumbria University you can contact our finance team here.

*Self-funding - This includes students who are in receipt of a Government loan.


The first payment is due on or shortly before enrolment, with subsequent payments due on the first working day of each month thereafter. Payments can be made by:

  • Direct Debit
  • Online e-payments system

  • Students may not be permitted to graduate in the event of unpaid tuition fees.
  • Continued failure to maintain payments as part of the payment plan may lead to exclusion from the programme of study.  If there are concerns over payment, please contact the finance office on 0191 227 4050 as soon as possible.
