This will take you to the university website and will provide you with options on how to pay. We have free payment plans available to self-funded students. If you want to pay in advance for the full program you are entitled to a five percent discount. You can subtract this from the full fee and enter this into the payment portal. If you are enrolling in September and wish to pay for the full academic year you will also be entitled to the five percent discount and will need to pay 95 per cent of your fee in the payment portal. Alternatively you can pay as you go. This will require 25 per cent of the first modules you are studying to be paid and then you will be provided with a payment schedule of 25 per cent per month for the following three months. Payment is quickest and most effective through the payment portal but if you are having to arrange a bank transfer please know this can take several days to clear and may prevent you from being confirmed to the program in time to start your studies. Once you have made a payment the enrollment team will check your record, ensure you were enrolled to the correct modules and confirm you to the course. It can take up to two days for you to receive your confirmation and a welcome email from the University. Please watch out for it as it is your confirmation that you are able to access the course. Good luck with your studies here at the University of Derby Online Learning.
