The dates for subsequent instalments will depend on the date you started the course. 

If you are going to receive funding from Student Finance England, your ‘Postgraduate Loan Summary’ letter will need to be sent to us to confirm your instalment plan prior to term start. Please note, this may mean your instalment amounts are different from above.

If a bursary or discount has been approved the amount will be deducted from your last instalment.
