Prior to starting University:

As a full time student (undergraduate, foundation degree, PGCE or School Direct Training Programme Non-Salaried), you should have already made an application to Student Finance for your funding, including tuition fees and maintenance loans, if required via the gov.uk website.

If you are considering university, the application process is open from the end of
February.  Early application will ensure funding is in place well before September enrolment, which will mean no delays in receipt on confirmation of attendance.

For EU students applications need to be made via the Student Finance Services European Team. If you have prior University study, please contact our Finance Team (finance@newman.ac.uk). Prior study, regardless of whether you have taken out loans previously, may affect your eligibility for funding.

If you are a student enrolling on a PGCE course, you may be entitled to a training bursary.

For further details on the training bursary visit the PGCE Training Bursary information webpage.

If you are a postgraduate research student (Masters or PhD); please see our Research Funding page for information on funding bodies which may be able to provide financial support. 

Students enrolling on a full Masters course (180 credits) or a Doctoral Degree can
apply for a postgraduate loan via the Gov.UK website

Please note, students studying fewer credits (i.e. PG Certificate/Diploma, or APL credits from prior study) are not eligible to take out a postgraduate loan.

Tuition Fee Loans are available to part time students.  Please see our part-time fees
page 
for information on support which may be available to you.

All Tuition Fees are available on the course page of the Newman University website or contact the Finance Office at Newman University on 0121 483 2253.

Maintenance Loans are available for some part time courses.  Please check the Student Finance website for full funding information visit the Gov.UK website.

At Enrolment:

PGCE students, in receipt of a Training Bursary, can use their bursary to pay their fees.  

Please ask the Finance Team at enrolment regarding this. 

Unlike other Tuition Fee Loans, 100% of the Postgraduate Loan is paid to directly to the
student (not to the University).  Therefore, all students studying at postgraduate level are treated as paying their own fees (see below).
 

Payment for all Masters Level courses can be set to fall in line with when you receive payment from student finance.

All students who are paying their own fees (not taking out an undergraduate loan) will be asked to sign a Tuition Fee Payment Acknowledgment Form at enrolment.  You will then have a two week window to set up an online payment plan (details below).

Online Payments:

To set up online payments visit the Online Payments page.

All online payments are taken using Debit/Credit Card.  Payment can be made in full or in instalments as follows:

Termly Payments:

  • 1st payment to be made on 7th October 2019 
  • 2nd payment to be made on 8th January 2020
  • 3rd payment to be made on 22nd April 2020

A six month payment plan running from 1st November to 1st April 2020 is also available. For students studying full Masters courses only (180 credits at Level 7), an 18 month installment plan is available.  Please contact the Finance Office for further information.

If your employer or a sponsor has agreed to fund all or part of your Tuition Fees, a completed Employer’s Undertaking Authority to Invoice Fees Form  is required at enrolment.

If you are being sponsored for only part of your fees, then you must pay the balance. You will be asked to sign a Tuition Fee Payment Acknowledgment Form for this amount at enrolment. You will then have a two week window to set up an online payment plan. Please use the Online Payment Pathway.

After Enrolment

Newman University may be able to provide limited financial support to students in financial difficulty:

Newman University Support Fund:

The Newman University Support Fund provides discretionary financial assistance for students to help them access and remain in higher education. It is primarily aimed at mature students and single parents and is a means tested application. 

Application forms are available following enrolment and can be obtained from the Finance Office, the University intranet, Student Services Department and the Students’ Union.

Applicants are advised to submit the full documentation as outlined in the application form.

You will only be eligible for this fund if you have applied for, and accepted, all support available to you. Please visit www.studentfinanceengland.co.uk for information on student support available.

All students have two weeks from the date of enrolment in which to withdraw without incurring tuition fee charges.  

An official withdrawal form must be submitted to Registry Operations within this period for withdrawal to be effective.

Should you fail to receive the funding applied for, you will be liable for the cost of the course fees (based on your withdrawal date) in line with SLC policy and Newman’s Debt Management Policy.

For all withdrawals and suspensions, an official withdrawal form must be submitted to Registry Operations.   It is the responsibility of the student to advise Registry Operations of any withdrawal or suspension.  

Notification to your Academic Departments alone is not sufficient.  The date of withdrawal is deemed to be the date that the completed withdrawal form is received by the Registry Department. 

Students that withdraw after this two week window but before the Christmas break will be liable for payment of 25% of fees. 

Withdrawal in term 2 (after Christmas break and before 1st April) will result a payment liability of 50% of the courses fees.

Withdrawal in term 3 will result in full fees being payable.

Full details of the University’s Debt Management Policy, including further information regarding Tuition Fee Liability, can be found on the University website. We strongly recommend that all students read this information.
