Payments through Western Union

International students who are paying the acceptance fee stated on their offer letter in order to finalise their acceptance (including to obtain a Confirmation of Enrolment where applicable) are required to make that payment through the online Western Union GlobalPay system.

For further information on how this online payment works visit Western Union's frequently asked questions page.

Note: The University no longer maintains a bank account for these deposits so a bank transfer to the University's bank account is no longer possible.

Payment options through Western Union: bank transfer or credit payment

Bank transfer: Users selecting this payment option will need to indicate who is making the payment (e.g. the student, agent, friend, family) and from which country the payment will be made. After entering the student, payer and amount details, an instruction sheet containing a reference number is generated (see example below). This instruction sheet will advise you on how the payment can be made through a local bank. Payments can be made through three currencies; USD, Euro and GBP.
