Instalments must be arranged by setting up a standing order with the first payment due by end September and can be no longer than 9 months in length.  If the standing order is delayed, the monthly amount must increase and the duration of the instalments be shortened so that full payment is received by no later than end May. It is the student’s responsibility to cancel the standing order once the annual package has been paid in full.
