You will receive confirmation of any scholarship award with your offer letter. Applicants must pay the minimum deposit stipulated in the offer letter by the date stated on the Acceptance Form in order to secure their scholarship.

Course fees are payable in each year of an academic course.
Course fees and living expenses should be calculated separately.
If your country of birth is outside the UK/EU, (or you have studied and gained qualifications outside of the UK), and you state that you are eligible for home fees, you will be required to provide additional documentation to support this.
Information regarding home/international fee status can be found via the UK Council for International Student Affairs. In particular, the information sheet Tuition fees for study in Wales: Will I pay the ‘home’ or ‘overseas’ rate? which outlines the specific fees status categories used for assessment.
If you wish to appeal a University tuition fee decision, you may find it helpful to first discuss your situation with an adviser via the UKCISA Student Advice Line. If you then believe that you fall into one of the categories outlined in the information sheet above, you should email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state in the email which specific fee category is relevant to you and attach supporting evidence for this.
A deposit of 50% of your first year’s course fees is required to secure your place at the University and must be paid before you apply for your student visa.
Deposit payments should be made by via bank transfer to:
Address: Taff Street, Pontypridd, UK
Sort Code: 40-37-08
Account Number: 71197371
SWIFT/BIC: MIDL GB21 49L
IBAN: GB43 MIDL 403708 71197371
Please note that we can accept bankers drafts from some countries, however a bank transfer is the best way to pay your deposit. If you make a payment by bank transfer then please send us a copy of the bank transfer receipt. Please make sure that you include the student’s name and their ID number as a reference.
Once the deposit has been paid to the University of South Wales it will only be considered for a refund on the production of an original visa rejection notice from the appropriate British Consulate which shows that the information you provided to them was appropriate for your application. Please complete the refund request form.
