Make a payment in advance

The advance payment option in eStudent allows you to make a payment on your account via credit card (Visa or Mastercard).

The amount displayed as the total outstanding debt is the sum of all your outstanding fees except those that can be deferred.

Important Information:

If you have debts then your payment is distributed in accordance with the Student Fees Payments and Refunds Policy and are made in order of:

1 - Due Date
2 - Financial Category Priority
3 - Transaction Date

Any additional payments will be registered as credit on to your account.

If you wish to pay a specific fee, for example tuition fee, you need to do this via that particular payment area using the credit card facility in eStudent or in person.

This feature can be used for international students wishing to credit their account with upfront fees before their arrival/ commencement of their course.
