How to pay

You can choose to pay in three different ways:

  • by credit/debit card or bank transfer through our partner Uni-Pay
  • by bank transfer directly to a Kings account
  • by credit/debit card over the phone

When booking or applying, you can choose whether to pay full fees or only the deposit, unless you are booking less then four weeks before the course start. In this case you would need to pay full fees.

Paying through Uni-Pay

Uni-Pay is an international payment and collection provider for overseas student fees that has been designed specifically for universities and language schools.

When you submit a booking or application with Kings and you choose to use Uni-Pay, your details will be received and reviewed by the registrars in each of our colleges.

If we have a place on the course you want, the registrar will accept your booking and you will receive an e-mail to request payment of either a deposit or full fees through Uni-Pay. This e-mail will contain a link to go to the Uni-Pay website where you will be able to either pay securely online via card or get details of the local Uni-Pay bank account you will need to pay into.

The advantage of using Uni-Pay rather than pay directly to a Kings bank account is that Uni-Pay allows you to pay in your local currency with a £7 one-off charge and this, most of the time, means you are paying less than what you would pay for an international bank transfer.

Paying by bank transfer directly to a Kings account

Please send the payment to the bank of the College you have selected (see below for bank details). Bank/wire transfers take 2 – 4 weeks to arrive. Full payment must be received four weeks before the date of arrival. Please include all bank charges in your payment and quote the student’s full name on the transfer. Please email a copy of the bank/wire transfer to Kings on acceptance of the offer and keep a copy of the transfer to take to the College with you.

Paying by card over the phone

You can use debit/credit cards to pay us directly but you will need to call the College to make the payment over the phone.

Please note there is a surcharge of 2% on credit cards, 3.5% on American Express. Using a debit card issued by a bank outside the UK or USA might result in you paying a credit card surcharge, depending on international banking agreements.
