We look forward to welcoming you to the University. This information will help you prepare for the start of your course.

Pay tuition fees

Tuition fees are paid in instalments. Once you have received an offer to study with us, payment deadlines for your instalments will be displayed in our online application system, MyNottingham

If you're an international student starting a full-time postgraduate taught course, you will need to pay a tuition fee deposit of at least £2,000 as part of the visa process. 

If you hold a full tuition fee scholarship or are fully sponsored, your fee deposit may be waived.  

Fees guidance


Apply for your visa

If you need a student visa to study in the UK, you will be sent a CAS document by email once you have received and firmly accepted an unconditional offer.

Check you've uploaded all documents required to meet the conditions of your offer via our online application system, MyNottingham.

If you intend to study a full-time postgraduate taught course, such as a masters or diploma, you will need to pay your tuition fee deposit before we can issue the CAS number for your visa application. 

The earliest your CAS number can be issued is four months before your course start date. The earliest you can apply for your visa is three months before your course start date.

Additional guidance for international students

Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS)

Some courses require you to obtain Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) clearance from the UK government before applying for your visa. If this applies to you, the University will email your ATAS statement to you along with instructions on how to apply. The earliest this will be sent is six months before your course start date. For more information, see the UK government’s ATAS guidance.

Progression and time limit

If you are an international student who has studied in the UK before, we may need you to complete an academic progression and time limit questionnaire (Microsoft Word document).

Fill in the questionnaire with as much information as possible. You will also need to provide the following information, if you haven’t already:

  • Copy of a transcript to date for your previous UK study at the same National Qualifications Framework level
  • An academic reference from your previous course manager or supervisor

Once completed, upload the form with any supporting documents via our online application system, MyNottingham.



If you need somewhere to live while you study, it's a good idea to start looking once you've accepted your offer. 

We guarantee you a room in University-arranged accommodation for one year if you apply by the specified deadline.

You can find information on the types of accommodation we offer and how to apply on our dedicated accommodation pages.

Defer your offer 

You can ask to defer your offer up until one month after your original start date.

Deferral requests must be approved by your school or department. If you're an international applicant applying for a student visa, you will need to pay the tuition fee deposit before a new deferred offer can be issued.

You can submit your deferral request via our enquiry form.

Please note that if you are considering deferral or have already requested a deferral, you should not complete registration for your course as deferrals cannot be processed once you have registered as a student  - please contact us using the enquiry form for further information.
