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.

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 As an International Student you must pay a minimum of 50% of your personally payable tuition fee otherwise you may be withdrawn from the university, unless the required payment has been made and in the University account before the due date.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.

Swansea University is operating as a cashless Campus, cash will not be accepted as payment of tuition fees.
Some students receive fee support from external sources such as companies, charities, trust funds, and governments etc. If this is the case the University requires documentary evidence of the award. This evidence must be presented at or before enrolment, and should make specific reference to the amount of fee contribution awarded and the Academic Year(s) it covers. You should ask your sponsor to complete a Confirmation of Sponsorship Form
Students claiming to be in receipt of sponsorship will not be permitted to enrol without appropriate documentation. Sponsors are expected to pay invoices within 30 days. The University will continue to recognise an organisation as a legitimate sponsor only if payments are received promptly. We do not class parents/family as sponsors for the purposes of this definition and reserve the right to reject sponsorship credentials in certain circumstances.
This is very unusual, but in the event that a sponsor fails to pay all or part of any fee due then you will be held personally responsible for any outstanding amount.
On completion of studies/withdrawal/suspension, the university may disclose adequate, relevant and sufficient personal data to a third party (nominated Debt Collection Company), to enable the debt to the university to be pursued and recovered.
Whilst we offer what we believe to be a fair system for paying fees in instalments we do expect payments to be made on the nominated due dates. If you find yourself in financial difficulties you are strongly advised to contact the Money@CampusLife team within the Student Services Department who may be able to help with Hardship Funds and advice.
The worst-case scenario for non- payment of fees is that under University Regulations you may be required to suspend your studies and re-enrol for the next Academic Year (once all outstanding fees have been paid). It is therefore important not to ignore any correspondence you may receive from the Finance Department.
Our secure online payment facility is available to all International students (New and Continuing) and is available 24/7. It can be accessed via the Swansea University Intranet. This system allows you to pay in with a credit/debit card.
We do not accept credit card payments by telephone from new international students. We do not accept American Express, Diners Club and Nat West Bank Solo debit cards. Students who enrol online will be able to make payment by credit/debit card.
