Convera usually processes transfers to Swansea University within 3 working days.  However, please note that occasionally it may take longer.  When making payments, please ensure that transfers are made in good time so that they clear before the relevant deposit or tuition fee deadlines.  Please also note that payments from Nigeria may take significantly longer.

What do I need to pay?

The University has a policy of permitting students to pay three instalments. As an International Student you must pay a minimum of 50% of your personally payable tuition fee otherwise you may be withdrawn from the university, unless the required payment has been made and in the University account before the due date. No exceptions will be made. Please be aware that any scholarships or bursaries you may have been awarded do not count towards payment of your first instalment. As an example, if your fees were £15,000 and you were awarded a scholarship of £2,000.00, your payable balance would then be £13,000.00 to pay in 3 instalments of 50% (£6,500.00), 25% (£3,250.00) and 25% (£3,250.00). Your 2nd/3rd instalment will become due for payment based on your course type and course start date.


International students can now pay their deposit and tuition fees using our payment platform powered by our partner Convera GlobalPay.

This allows you, your parents and sponsors to pay GBP student fees in the currency of your choice in a simple and secure way.
