Online payment portal

Welcome to Anglia Ruskin University's secure online payment service. This section explains the different methods of paying your tuition and accommodation fees. It also has information on our no cash or cheque policy, and advice on being aware of scams and frauds.

If you're a UK student you can defer your tuition fee payments by taking out a student loan. Many part-time students can also apply for a loan, and you won't start paying it back until after you graduate. Find out more about loans for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Paying tuition and accommodation fees

Tuition and accommodation fees can both be paid directly using the following methods.

To minimise the risks around fraud and money laundering, we strongly discourage you from making direct bank transfers to the University. Students are expected to pay their University fees using one of the payment methods below.

If you have any questions or need help, please contact the Fees Team on +44 (0) 1245 683190 (Monday-Friday 10am-4pm) or email fees@aru.ac.uk.

Bank transfer from a UK bank account

Option A
You can now make an immediate bank transfer from your UK bank account to Anglia Ruskin, via our Trustly Online Bank Transfer, powered by our partner Flywire.

Your payment will then be received and allocated to your fee invoice in 2-3 working days.

This is a secure, efficient and easy way to process your payment, without the worry of entering the wrong bank account details or the wrong payment reference.

This option allows you to pay the fee using the same authentication methods as you would for your existing mobile or online banking.

No transaction fees passed onto the payer by Anglia Ruskin University.

Option B
Alternatively, if you prefer to make a manual bank transfer payment, requiring you instead to enter the bank account details to send the payment to and to enter the correct payment reference, then this option is also available on this payment solution.

Please note that this option will take slightly longer to be received and allocated to your invoice at around 3-4 working days, so we recommend using the Trustly Online Bank Transfer as it is slightly quicker and very easy to use.

Debit or credit card

Credit or debit card payments can be made using our online payment option.

Before you start to make the payment please make sure you have:

  • student's ID number (found on their student ID card)
  • student's date of birth
  • amount that you wish to pay towards tuition or accommodation fees.

All payments are in sterling.

If you are paying using an overseas card you will likely be provided with two options once you have submitted your card details:

  2. to use an exchange rate determined by your card issuer.

Benefits of agreeing to the rate offered by Elavon:

  • Elavon best exchange rate guarantee
  • instant visibility of the amount you will pay in your home currency
  • no hidden charges
  • acceptance is totally at your discretion.

Debit and credit card payments can be made via https://payments.anglia.ac.uk/students.

No cash or cheque policy

For your own safety and security please do not bring cash into the UK to fund your University fees. Anglia Ruskin University will not accept cash payments either directly or at any of our Barclays Bank branches, with our bank having been instructed not to accept cash.

We strongly recommend you use one of the three methods above.

In the interest of ensuring your payment appears on your account as quickly as possible, we do not accept cheques or drafts as a payment method. Please use one of the three payment methods above.

Scams and fraud

Please take care when deciding how to pay your fees and take time to visit our Scams and fraud page to help protect yourself.

The three methods of payment listed above are our preferred ways of paying your fees as they are safe and secure. If you choose to use an alternative route of payment you may be putting yourself and your funding at risk of scams and fraud.
