Payment Information

All schools hosting our students will be paid a set fee for each placement/student (aside our 'Boosting Reading @ Primary' placement), as set out on the School Offer Form and on our Placement Information page, which you can access by clicking HERE.


Payment will be made by bank transfer directly into the bank account held on Northumbria’s Finance system following the completion of the placement. The process is as follows:

1. Completion of Placement

2. A list of payments to be made will be shared securely with the Resources & Planning Team within Health and Life Sciences who will arrange the payment by BACS into the bank account stored within Northumbria University’s Finance System.

3. Your organisation will receive a remittance advice via email from Northumbria in the days leading up to the payment reaching your bank account.

Previously, Northumbria University have issued purchase orders to settings following the completion of placements, inviting settings to invoice to claim funding. Payment would then be paid on Northumbria’s payment terms of 30 days nett monthly (i.e. the last day of the month following the date of the invoice [invoices dated May would previously not have been paid until the end of June]). The new process vastly cuts down on the timescales in which you will receive payment and eradicates the need for a purchase order and invoice.

Please note this process is for Placement Payments only. Any other activity between Northumbria and your organisation would still go through the purchase order route for payment.

Any payment process queries should be sent to in the first instance. If your query relates to the amount due for a particular placement, please direct it to
