Terms and conditions
Payment of student fees
You will have been advised by the appropriate University authority of the sums payable for accommodation and/or tuition fees.
In order for you to settle your fees efficiently, the University has made available this web based payment facility using the ePayment Gateway.
Please read these terms carefully before using the online payment facility. Using the online payment facility on this website indicates that you accept these terms. If you do not accept these terms do not use this facility. All payments are subject to the following conditions.
Your payment will normally reach your University account to which you are making a payment, the following working day. However, time should be allowed for processing transactions, particularly through PayPal.
We cannot accept liability for a payment not reaching the correct University account due to you quoting an incorrect account number or incorrect personal details.
Neither can we accept liability if payment is refused or declined by PayPal or the credit/debit card supplier for any reason.
If PayPal or the card supplier declines payment, the University is under no obligation to bring this fact to your attention. You should check with your supplier that payment has been deducted from your account.
The data that you provide during this transaction will only be used for the purpose of recording your payment. We shall abide by the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 and ensure that the data is used for no other purposes and is disclosed to no third party, except in respect of data that it is necessary to provide to the University's e-commerce provider. PayPal and the University's e-commerce provider will retain some personal information so that we can access payment records in the event of queries or incomplete payment information. Any credit/debit card details given by you will not be retained in their entirety. Information will only be retained for a reasonable period and then destroyed.
In no event will the University be liable for any damages whatsoever arising out of the use, inability to use, or the results of use of this site, any websites linked to this site, or the materials or information contained at any or all such sites, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages.
Refunds, if applicable, will only be made to the PayPal account or credit/debit card used for the original transaction.
