Western Union: International Students

Western Union

We would like to give our overseas students the straightforward option to pay Tuition Fees and Accommodation Fees online in their own currency. Edge Hill University is in partnership with Western Union Business Solutions to enable payments to be made by international bank transfer in a safe and secure manner in your local currency for tuition and accommodation fees.

How do I use Western Union to pay?

  • Visit our Western Union payment gateway at https://student.globalpay.wu.com/geo-buyer/edgehill and complete the simple on-line form (You will need your Student ID to complete the form).
  • Choose the amount of money that you are required to pay for your Tuition/Accommodation Fees and select the currency that you wish to pay in.
  • You will receive an instant quote of the price in your own local currency. This quote is valid for 72 hours.
  • Once you agree to the offer, you can instruct your own bank to transfer the local currency funds (electronically if you wish) to Western Union.

What are the benefits?

Western Union payments are fast, secure and simple. Students can see exactly how much a foreign currency payment will cost in their own local currency, before they make a payment. Using this method, students do not need to worry about lost or delayed payments. Western Union will ensure that the full amount you pay will be transferred to the University in UK Pounds (sterling) and you will receive a confirmation email once the payment is settled. There are no hidden bank charges or fees for using this service.
