New Students



Pay your fees quickly and easily via our online payment service

Fees can be paid in advance of enrolment, at enrolment or at the latest by 31 October each year. A minimum payment of 1/3 is required by 31 October although the full amount may be paid. Second instalments are due by the following 07 February and third instalments are due by 02 May.

You will be able to see your Fee transactions (amounts, deadlines etc.) via Portico.

The quickest and easiest way to pay your tuition fees is via Payonline, the UCL Online Payment Service. For alternative payment methods, see here. You (or someone paying on your behalf) can pay any time after you have received an email to pre-enrol. Once you have paid, you will receive an email receipt.

If you have applied for funding from Student Finance England, Student Finance Wales, Student Finance Northern Ireland or Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS), you do not have to pay your fees as these will be paid automatically to UCL. However, we recommend you make sure that you have applied for the full amount.

Other students will need to pay the fees directly to UCL or give details of a sponsorship arrangement (if applicable) to Student Fees.

All tuition fee queries should be directed to Student Fees and all other funding queries should be directed to Student Funding. Both teams are located in Student Centre 2 (room G.01), in the Chadwick Building (map reference C3).

How much should I be paying?

Current tuition fee rates for undergraduates can be found here. Postgraduate students should have their fee rate quoted on their offer letter. Further information about tuition fees can be found in the Money section of the current students site. If you have any queries about fees, please contact the Student Fees Team.


In addition to your tuition fees you will also need to cover the basic costs such as accommodation, food and books. The UCL Financial Support and Advice website offers lots of advice about managing your money. If you find you need additional financial guidance for more complex or sensitive matters you can make an appointment to speak with the Student Funding Welfare Adviser.
