Bank Transfers

There are several simple but important steps involved with paying by bank transfer.

Step 1. Use the account details below to make your bank transfer. Make sure the bank transfer request includes your full name and the code Q232 SUMMER SCHOOL. If you are paying from a non-UK bank please make sure that you pay in GBP so we get the correct amount. If you pay by bank transfer from a non-UK bank, your payment might incur additional bank charges, so we ask that you add £15 to your payment to allow for this.
