How to pay your tuition fees

Paying your tuition fees

Your tuition fees should be paid in full before or during online enrolment at the start of each academic year.

All you need is your 6-digit student ID number and your method of payment.

Student paying their own fees

Online by debit or credit card

This is the quickest, most efficient way to pay. We can take Visa, Mastercard, Eurocard, Switch, Maestro, Solo and Delta cards. You will need your 6-digit student ID number.

  1. Please go to SOAS Web Payments
  2. Make sure you keep your confirmation email as your receipt of payment
  3. If you have any questions about your online payment, email us at

International online card payments (for non-UK bank accounts only)

If you want to pay from a non-UK bank you can use our secure and simple Flywire website. 

SOAS has partnered with Flywire to offer international payers ways to pay in their local currency. For example, Indian Rupees in India; Euro in Europe etc. Depending on the country of the payer, different payment options will be presented. This includes local currency card payments or bank transfers to an in-country bank. 

Reference: You'll need to use your 6-digit student ID number to make a payment.

Bank transfer

Bank transfers for both domestic and international banks are possible through our secure and simple Flywire website. Please select the country the payment is to be made from to see the option for bank transfers.

You will need your 6 digit SOAS student ID number to make a payment. If you have any questions about the online bank transfer, email us at

Students who choose not to use Flywire are still able to pay via Bank transfer arranged directly with their banks. Below is the required information for this type of transfer.

Step 1

Use the account details below to make your bank transfer. Make sure the bank transfer request includes your full name and your 6-digit student ID number. (If you’re paying from a non-UK bank make sure you pay in GBP so we get the correct amount. If you pay by bank transfer from a non-UK bank, your bank might charge you extra, so make sure you allow for that.)

Step 2

Then, to allow us to locate your payment, make sure you email us with your bank’s name, the amount you paid, date of transfer, your name, and your 6-digit student ID number. Send that information to

Step 3

We should receive the payment at least 14 days before enrolment to give us enough time to process it. Either print off the online bank transfer confirmation or ask your bank to give you proof of the transaction for your records (and in case we need to see proof that you paid).

Please do not deposit money at a bank branch directly into the School's account as we won’t be able to trace it.
