Undergraduate UK (Home) fees and finance

Applying for funding

The decision to study at University is a financial investment, so it is vital that you check what funding is available and apply for it as soon as you can.

There are consequences of late payment of fees so we recommend that you sort out your finances before you even start with us.

How to pay

There are a number of different ways to pay. Please read the information below carefully to find the service that is right for you.

In accordance with the UK Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act, the university is unable to accept payments originating from sanctioned countries (Iran, North Korea, Cuba and the Crimea, Luhansk and Donetsk Provinces of Ukraine, Syria, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Russia and Belarus).  Please do not attempt to make a payment from a sanctioned country using the Convera platform or any other MDX online services; instead, please contact UniHelp for guidance.

  • Find a payment method for you

    • Bank transfer via Convera

      Middlesex University has partnered with Convera to provide you with the ability to pay by Bank transfer.

      Your parents or Sponsors can make a bank transfer via our partner Convera. They provide a secure, fast payment service so that you can pay your fees in your local currency and from your home bank account without worrying about paying exchange rates or bank charges.

      Pay via Convera today

    • Card payment (credit or direct debit)

      Payment may be made online via MyUnihub. Once logged in, select the Administration and Finances tab followed by My Fees and Finances Portal.

    • Telephone payments

      If you are unable to pay online, you can pay by telephone using our Automated Telephone Payment Service which is available 24/7/365 by calling +44 (0)20 8411 6400 and select option 1.

      You can only pay by telephone for current or future year charges.

      All payments relating to prior year debts will be validated prior to processing. This means that we are unable to accept telephone payments for prior debts. Debts will not be considered as paid until the University has received cleared funds. The clearing period is usually two weeks.

      We recommend that you use our Bank transfer facility (as partnered through Convera) to make your payment where you are unable to use any of the other services listed here. For example if you have been deregistered or are no longer a student at Middlesex.

Struggling to pay your fees?

If your financial circumstances change and you are unable to meet your payment deadline, please contact our Student Welfare Advice Team at the earliest opportunity. They can give support and advice on, for example, sources of funding available.

You can contact the team by booking an appointment or raising a query through the UniHelp team.

We will assist where we can, however the quality of teaching is dependent upon funding and this is why the University must act to recover all outstanding debts.

Please note that documentary evidence to support your request will be required before it can be considered. Please have this information to hand when contacting us.

Unpaid fees

If you have a tuition fee debt that becomes overdue, restrictions will be applied to your student account automatically. Restrictions may prevent you from re-enrolling, graduating or receiving your final transcript.

If you have outstanding tuition fee debts from a previous academic year, you will not be permitted to re-enrol. All tuition fee debts must be paid in full before you can return to undertake another year of study.

Importantly, this means that you will not be able access your student loan and so cannot use it to pay off any old debts.

Self-funded discounts

If you are a UK (Home) self-financing student, and are able to pay your tuition fee in full by the payment deadline, you are entitled to a 3% prompt payment discount.

Before you make your payment, calculate your 3% (you can use this calculator for ease) and deduct it from your payment. For example, if your fees are £9250, then your discount will be £277.50.

Instalment plans

An instalment plan gives you the opportunity to spread the cost of your tuition fees in instalments instead of paying your fees in full by the payment deadline.


If you are a UK (Home) student with an annual fee greater than £1,500, you may be permitted to pay your fees in six instalments from October to March. To find out whether you could pay by instalments, you will need to request an instalment plan via this link. Once we approve your instalment plan, we will call you to register card details. Once you have submitted your card details, the University will automatically deduct the relevant payment from your card on the respective dates mentioned below. Payment will be taken on the 21st of each month.

Please note: If you do not submit your card details at the start of the Academic year, you may be required to catch-up with your instalment plan whereby the University may deduct the outstanding amount with your next scheduled instalment.
