Self funding students

Tuition fees must be either paid in full at the start of each academic year or in three equal instalments on the dates listed below for September start courses:

Instalment Date Amount
1  15 October 2019 1/3 total fee
2 1 February 2020 1/3 total fee
3 1 May 2020 1/3 total fee

You will be asked during stage one enrolment how you intend to pay your tuition fee. If you will be receiving a postgraduate loan from Student Finance England or Student Finance Wales, you will be classed as self-funding as your postgraduate loan will be paid directly to you and not the University. You will be instructed during enrolment how to make payment. This can either be done in full at the start of the academic year or in three equal instalments via a recurring card payment on the dates outlined above. .For further information related to payments contact the Fees, Scholarships and Bursaries Team at

It is your responsibility to make payment on time and ensure that sufficient funds are available in your account to cover the first and any subsequent card payments.

Tuition fees must be paid in full by 1 May 2020. If you fail to meet this deadline the University will refer any outstanding debt for external collection and may review your registration.

Sponsored Students

If you are sponsored by an employer for part of, or the full tuition fee, you must  forward the following information to during enrolment:

  • A letter from your sponsor to confirm that they agree to sponsor you
  • The letter must be on official headed paper and state the name and address where the invoice needs to be sent. It should also confirm your name, student number, academic year and the amount of fees they are paying
  • A company purchase order number if applicable.

Please note that in accordance with our published Tuition Fee Regulations you will remain personally responsible for payment of tuition fees, even if there is an arrangement for payment to be made on your behalf. If your sponsor fails to pay within 30 days of invoicing we will commence credit control procedures against you, not your employer.

Travelling here

Car Parking at Edge Hill University is limited and cannot always accommodate all vehicles during peak periods. We therefore recommend, wherever possible, that students use public transport.

Students coming to study at Edge Hill for the first time will need their student number before a parking permit application can be made.

The issuing of parking permits is based on clear eligibility criteria, however the provision of a permit does not guarantee a parking space due to the limited capacity on campus. Even if you do have a permit, we suggest you build in sufficient time to park off campus when necessary. Details of alternative parking provision close to the University can be found on the link below.

Please visit this page on our website to find out more about parking on-campus.
