You can pay by credit/debit card, bank/building society cheque, postal order, banker's draft, direct payment or by direct debit (UK banks only).
Credit/debit card payments (Mastercard or Visa) can be made online or by completing and returning the credit card authorisation form along with your signed student registration agreement. Payment will be taken on the day of registration.
Direct debit payments can be made online or by completing and returning the bank mandate form along with your signed student registration agreement. Payment will be taken 7-10 days after registration. Payment will be taken by automated bank transfer from your bank/building society and you agree that sufficient funds will be held in your account.
Bank/building society cheque, postal order, direct payment or banker's draft payments should be in pounds sterling drawn on a UK bank and made payable to The College of Estate Management. Please write your student number on the reverse of your cheque and return it with your completed student registration agreement.
You can pay your fees on a monthly instalment plan by credit/debit card or via direct debit (UK banks only). There is no additional charge for using this plan and no interest is charged.
If paying by credit card the initial instalment will be taken on the day of registration and if paying by direct debit the initial instalment will be taken 7-10 days after registration. The consecutive monthly instalments will begin on the start date of your course. If your course is for a period of up to six months, there will be a total of four instalments. For all other courses there will be eight instalments. If you register close to the course start date, the first and second instalments may be taken together. To work out the approximate instalment amount divide your fees by the appropriate number of instalments.
We will advise you of the amounts and expected instalment due dates. You must pay the full amount of fees due to us before any exams can be taken. If for any reason you default on any instalments we may require full repayment of the total amount outstanding. We also reserve the right to charge interest on this outstanding amount.
Direct debit payments can be made online or by completing and returning the bank mandate form along with your signed student registration agreement. Payment will be taken by automated bank transfer from your bank/building society and you agree that sufficient funds will be held in your account. This payment method is only available to students who are paying their own fees, have a personal bank or building society account in the UK and are in full-time employment (in the event of you becoming unemployed during the period of repayment you must inform the College in writing).
Course fees can be settled by an initial payment of 50% of the full course fee due followed by two instalments of 25%. This instalment plan is not available to UK students and is not available if registering on-line.
There is an administration charge for this plan, which varies according to the length of the course - £25 per block for courses that have two six-month blocks in a year; and £50 for all other courses.
The administration charge must be paid in full along with the initial 50% payment at registration. We will advise you of the amounts and due dates of the two remaining payments once the signed instalment plan form and the signed student registration agreement is received.
Full fees due must be paid before any exams can be taken.
This instalment plan is only available to students paying their own fees. If for any reason you default on any of the payments due we may require full payment of the total amount outstanding. We reserve the right to charge interest on any outstanding amount.
A third party (such as an employer) who is paying either all or part of your fees and agrees to be invoiced for fees should complete and sign a sponsorship agreement form. This payment plan is not available if registering online.
You must return the signed sponsorship agreement with your signed student registration agreement. If the sponsorship agreement does not cover the full amount of fees due, as shown on the student registration agreement, you must indicate how you intend to settle the balance by ticking the appropriate box and enclosing the required payment or signed payment plan document. Your sponsor must sign the sponsorship agreement form. You cannot sign it yourself unless you are a sole trader, in which case confirmation of your status is required on your business's headed paper.
For non-UK organisations we will raise a Pro-forma invoice which you need to ensure is paid in advance before you will be registered on the course.
