How to pay
Follow this simple process to pay for your studies at LSBU
Self-funding students studying for a whole year (2 semesters) can choose to either pay in full or by an initial down payment followed by two equal instalments. If you pay in full you may be entitled to an early settlement discount.
Arrangements for self-funding students
When you enrol it is essential that you either:
- pay the full fee plus any registration fee, or
- pay the initial down payment of one half (50%) of the fee plus the full amount of any registration fee. (The remaining two instalments, amounting to a quarter (25%) of the fee each are due on the dates given below.)
Deadlines for the 2017/18 academic year are set out below.

Early settlement discounts
If you are enrolling for a whole year's study, are self-funding and pay in full by the full payment dates set out above you may be entitled to an early settlement discount of 5% of your year's course fee.
The discount is not applicable if you receive an LSBU Scholarship, any other LSBU Discount or Bursary or for registration fees. The discount is applicable on that part of your fee that you pay directly to the University.

The discount does not apply to Home or EU full-time undergraduates. See a copy of our tuition fee regulations (PDF File 129 KB) for more details on part self-funding/part sponsored students.

- The contact name and email of the person in the organisation who has agreed your sponsorship
- The address of your company’s Finance Department where the invoice will be sent
- A purchase order number – emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
