Funding your studies

As an international student, there are a number of ways to fund your studies.


We have a range of scholarships for fee paying international students (York campus only). Some of these are for undergraduate and some for postgraduate students. Find out more on our Scholarships for international students page

Students from USA

You can access federal loans, which are available for undergraduate and postgraduate students. More information on the US loan system can be found on our Loans for US students page.

Funding in your home country

We accept a variety of funding options such as the Norwegian state loans, German DAAD funding and government sponsored students from a range of countries.

Deposits and advance payments

Most international students need to pay a deposit. The amount is 50% of the first year's tuition fees. This amount will be shown on your unconditional offer e-mail. You need to pay the deposit before your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) can be given for your visa application. 

No deposit is needed for sponsored students, students with US federal loans, and students with Norwegian State Loans. These students need to provide the following: 

  • Sponsored students must submit a sponsor letter to the university
  • US students paying through the federal loans system must submit an official notification of the loan to our admissions team
  • Norwegian students paying through the Norwegian state loans system must provide the preliminary statement of financial support to the admissions team.

Pre-sessional course students must pay the 50% deposit as well as 100% of the Pre-sessional fees.
