How to pay your fees

Prior to starting University:

It is your responsibility to check funding eligibility prior to enrolling with the University. Not all students are eligible for funding due to prior study. If you are unsure then please contact our Finance Team by emailing finance@newman.ac.uk.

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 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.

The PGCE training bursary will be automatically administered by Newman University on behalf of the Department for Education to eligible students. Students enrolling onto eligible PGCE courses will be asked to confirm their personal eligibility and provide their bank account details during the enrolment process for bursary administration purposes.

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:

In September 2020 online enrolment will be through our online enrolment portal.  This will open in early September and will be available through MyNewman.  Full details will be provided to you  to opening.

As part of the process you will be asked if you have a tuition fee loan confirmed.  If this is the case, you will proceed through the enrolment task and funds released from Student Finance 5-7 days after the course start date. 

If you select that you are paying your own fees, funded by a third party or your loan is not confirmed to the University by Student Finance, the Newman University credit control team will contact you to request an online payment plan is set up.

If you have any queries, please contact the Finance Team – finance@newman.ac.uk.

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

Please contact the finance team via finance@newman.ac.uk to request 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 be prompted to set up an online payment plan during the online enrolment process.  If this has not been set up within 2 weeks of enrolment our Finance Team will contact you.

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:

  • 8th October 2021

  • 12th January 2022 (PGCE/ITE courses and BA SH Applied Humanities (Accelerated degree))

  • 26th January 2022 (UG BA/BSc, Foundation Year and Foundation degree)

  • 27th April 2022     

If your employer or a sponsor has agreed to fund all or part of your Tuition Fees, please contact the finance team prior to enrolment.

If you are being sponsored for only part of your fees, then you must pay the balance.

You will be required to provide full contact details of your sponsor/employer during the online enrolment process.  If they fail to honour payment, the liability will be with the student.

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. 

Applicants are advised to submit the full documentation as outlined in the online application form. All details and the link to apply can be found on our Student Finance Intranet Page (only available to enrolled students).

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 start date of their course in which to withdraw without incurring tuition fee charges.  

The liability points shown relate to September enrolment only.  Students enrolling in January will have different liability points.  Fees for short courses and CCRS are payable in full following two week cooling off period.

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

An official withdrawal form must be submitted to Registry 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.   It is the responsibility of the student to advise Registry 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 the end of Easter break) 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.
