The University provides a number of easy, safe and secure online payment options which can be used to pay deposit, tuition and accommodation fees.

You can use your credit or debit card to make a single payment (Pay Now) or to set up a Tuition Fee instalment plan (Recurrent Card Payment).

When paying, you must include the following information:

  • Student's date of birth
  • Nine digit Exeter student number

Please note, only the cards displayed above are accepted.

Depending on your card provider the system may ask for additional information in-line with 3-D Secure 2.0 requirements. This provides an additional layer of security when making online payments.

You can make a payment via GlobalPay for Students which provides an easy and secure way to pay in your local currency. Some of the benefits to this method of payment are:

  • Payment is made in your local currency and will be converted to that of your institution*
  • There are no hidden charges or receiving bank fees
  • Once a payment has been made, it can be easily tracked using your unique reference
  • Favourable exchange rates compared to most banks

*Please note, your conversion rate will be held for 72 hours. Therefore, please make sure you finalise your funds transfer to the University of Exeter within this time period.‌

Other ways to pay

When making payment, you must use your nine digit Exeter student number as the reference. This is all that is required to correctly allocate the payment to your account.

Please do not include any other reference as we may not be able to allocate your payment and may result it in being returned to you.

You will need the student’s/applicant’s nine digit Exeter student number and the student’s/applicant's date of birth.

You can find your nine digit Exeter student number at the top of most correspondence from the University and on your Unicard. Please note, this number is different to your UCAS number, e.g.:

No, there is no additional charge if you make a payment via credit or debit card.

Anyone can make a payment, for example: student, parent, other family member, friend, sponsor, agent on behalf of the student. They will need the student’s/applicant’s full name, nine digit Exeter student number and date of birth when making the payment.

Using our listed payment methods, you can make payments for:

  • tuition fees
  • tuition fee deposits
  • accommodation
  • other sundry fees, i.e. fines and exam fees

The easiest and quickest way to pay is online via debit/credit card. You will need your (the student's) nine digit Exeter student number and date of birth in order to do this. Select 'tuition fees deposit' and enter the amount you want to pay. Then continue through the payment pages to complete the payment.

Alternatively you can pay using GlobalPay for students (online bank transfer).

You can check to see if a payment has been received by logging onto and checking the balance.

Payments will take different lengths of time to reflect on your online statement depending on the payment method:

  • GlobalPay for students: Can take up to 10 working days for international bank transfers to be received by the University. Once received, the payment should reflect within 2 working days.
  • Online debit or credit card payments: should reflect within 2 working days of the payment being made.

If your online payment has been unsuccessful please contact your bank or credit card provider as the University is not able to determine the reasons for payments being unsuccessful or declined.

If your payment does not reflect after 10 working days, then we would advise that you contact SID and provide them with the payment details, quoting your nine digit Exeter student number and name. We can then investigate the transaction.
