Tuition Fee Loans

Undergraduates & PGCE Students

Funding is available through Student Finance in the form of a Tuition Fee Loan.

If you are having a Tuition Fee Loan, it will be paid directly to University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

When completing your Student Finance application, please ensure that you select:

  • UCAS institution code: T80
  • University name: University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

If you have any queries regarding the payment of fees, please contact the Finance Department at fees@uwtsd.ac.uk

Postgraduate Students only

Post Graduate Funding is available through Student Finance in the form of a Tuition Fee Loan.

Unlike an undergraduate loan, a postgraduate loan is paid directly to you, so you are required to arrange payment of tuition fees to UWTSD in accordance with our payment terms.

To make payment of your Tuition Fees please pay in full in Term 1 or by instalments (see instalments section for further details)

For further information please visit - https://www.gov.uk/funding-for-postgraduate-study

Tuition Fees - Contribution by a sponsor

If your employer or charity organisation is contributing towards your course fee, please download the Sponsor Form. (Welsh Version/Fersiwn Cymraeg - Ffurflen Noddwyr)

On receipt of the Sponsor Form, we will charge your sponsor for their contribution of your course fee.

Please note we will require a new form completed at registration each year, (if funding has been agreed by your sponsor for that given academic year).

Tuition and Accommodation Fees - Methods of payment

Payment can be made in any one of the two following ways for:

  • Tuition fees without a Student Loan
  • Accommodation fees

By using the following link: https://payments.uwtsd.ac.uk/ once you have received your Invoice into your student e-mail address. 

Immediate payment

Fees can be paid immediately, in full, by credit/debit card. The payment will be processed straight away, and the full fees will be collected immediately.

Recurring card payment

Fees can be scheduled for payment on agreed dates (see details below). Please note setting up a recurring card payment will ensure all payments due for the current academic year will be made automatically. You don’t need to do anything further (for this year) unless we contact you to say otherwise.

If the dates given on screen do not match the date you receive your student finance please contact fees@uwtsd.ac.uk to discuss

You will need the following information to pay by any of the methods described above:

International students

What Happens if I Don't Pay?

Tuition Fees

Students are required to confirm as part of the enrolment process that they accept responsibility for the payment of tuition and any accommodation, or other charges that they may incur while studying at the University. If a student fails to pay tuition fees when they become due and fails to make satisfactory arrangements for discharging any outstanding debt, the University reserves the right to commence legal proceedings to recover the debt. Students that have outstanding tuition fee debts are not entitled to progress to the next year of studies, to be awarded or to graduate.

Accommodation Fees

Returning students may apply for accommodation but will not be allocated rooms unless accommodation fees to the University are paid in full for previous Licence Agreements.

Tuition Fees - Payment by Instalments

Tuition fees can be scheduled for future payment in one, two or three instalments, depending on value.

You will need to wait for your invoice before you can pay.

Fees of up to £250

Terms and Conditions

By submitting a payment through the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (“the University”) online-payments site you are agreeing to these terms and conditions. If you do not accept these terms, please do not proceed with the submission of your payment and contact the University’s Finance Office (details beneath).

It is the responsibility of the Student to ensure that the University's Tuition Fees in respect of the Programme are paid at the beginning of each Academic or Calendar Year of study or as directed by the University’s finance office.

The fees owed must be paid prior to or at registration (enrolment) whether directly by the Student or on the Student's behalf by a third party (such as a relative, employer or other sponsor).

The payment of any sums intended to be in respect of Tuition Fees by or on behalf of the Student does not in itself indicate the existence of a contract between the University and the Student.

Please note that for security and fraud prevention the University uses third party processors (WPM Education) to process all payment transactions.

Our Privacy Notice regarding uses of your data is available in our Student Privacy Statement.

The University may update these terms from time to time and any changes will be effective immediately on being set out here. Please ensure you are aware of the current terms.
