Welcome to the University of Essex student online payment system

The University of Essex offers two payment methods to students for the payment of fees, accommodation and other expenses.

Payment by webpay

The service allows students and their sponsors to make secure online payments using credit cards and debit cards. In order to make a 'specified payment', for which users can see all of their outstanding invoices in detail, students will have to provide their PRID, date of birth, Essex username and password. Sponsors of students please provide the PRID and date of birth of the person for whom you would like to pay and make an 'unspecified payment'.

Further information is available on the webpay help pages.

Payment by wire

This service allows overseas students and their sponsors to make direct bank transfers via the Globalpay for Students platform powered by Western Union Business Solutions . In order to use the system, you must provide the PRID and date of birth of the person for whom you would like to pay.

The advantages of this system are:

  • the exchange rate is guaranteed for 72 hours with no additional charges from the University or from the originating bank
  • this method is cheaper than using a credit card to make a payment
  • the university of Essex will receive your full-payment.
  • Easy to use platform available in 8 languages: French, Korean, Indonesian, English, Spanish, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese and Hindi. Japanese will be available soon.
