How it works

Using the Western Union Business Solutions Bank to Bank Transfer Service is a user friendly system, once you have clicked through to the Service:
Enter your student information:

  • Student ID number provided to you by the University (e.g. ABC12345678)
  • Student forename and surname
  • Student date of birth (DD/MM/YYYY)
  • Student email address
  • Student postal address
  • Student contact number

All the boxes marked with a * are required. Click Next. Enter the amount(s) of tuition and or accommodation fees in the relevant fields in £ sterling. Click Continue. For International Deposits the correct fee will automatically be displayed.

  • Choose your home country, this will automatically convert your fee amount to your home currency (if your home currency is unavailable it will default to the next best option eg USD). Click Continue.
  • You will be quoted an amount to pay instantly. This amount will be guaranteed for 72 hours. 
  • Next, you will be emailed simple instructions in PDF format, detailing which bank your fees need to be transferred to in your home country. You can either make this payment using online banking, telephone banking or in person at your bank in the same way that you would make a standard bank transfer. The PDF instructions provided can also be emailed directly to a family member if they are making the payment on your behalf. 
  • Accept the conditions of use. 

These instructions will contain an important reference that you must ensure your bank quotes when making the payment. This reference allows the University to identify and allocate your fees to your University account quickly. If your payment is to complete your enrolment at the University this will only be completed once your payment has been received.

Once payment has been sent through the nominated bank to Western Union Business Solutions, the University will be advised and the payment will be applied to your student fees account.
