Undergraduate (UK/EEA) students
If you have applied for a student loan and/or Government grant you will
receive information directly from Student Finance England during the summer. If
you are to receive a full tuition fee loan you will not be required to make a
payment to the University. If you are required to pay some or all of your
tuition fees you will receive an invoice from the University, once you have
completed registration. The invoice will detail the amount due, the payment
options (either in full or by instalments) and the date the payment(s) must be
How to pay your tuition
If you have not been assessed by Student Finance England at the time of
registration, you should still complete Online Registration and commence your
studies for the year. If you have not been assessed by the time the tuition fee
payments are due (as detailed in the invoice issued to you), they must be paid
by the due date and when your assessment has been completed the University will
refund any overpayments to you.
If you have received a confirmation letter from Student Finance England
stating that you must take it to registration at the University of Essex, you
do not need to do this.
Once you have completed
Online Registration we will send an electronic
confirmation to Student Finance England and they will release any payments due
to you directly into your bank account. Please allow one week for the payment to be made
to you. If we have any questions we will contact you directly and may need to
see the letter from Student Finance England at this time.
