Tuition Fee Deposits for Postgraduate Taught Programmes
All self-funding students classified as international (according to EU regulations), who require a visa to study in the UK, will be required to pay a Tuition Fee Deposit. The purpose for this deposit is to help demonstrate that they have the finances required in order for them to enter the UK to study. This information is given within their CAS documentation, which is presented to the UKVI when applying for a British VISA. Deposits are taken once an offer has been issued. Applicants are asked to pay within 6 weeks of the date of their offer. The deposit they pay will be credited to their account with the University and so reduce the amount that they have to pay when they are at Durham.
Standard deposit amount for all Postgraduate Taught Programmes (excluding below): £1,000
Deposit amount for MSc Business School Programmes: £2,000
Only the following Departments require Tuition Fee Deposits for Home/EU students:
All Business School Programmes: £500
