Paying Your Tuition Fees using Global Pay for Students
The Royal Veterinary College is pleased to provide you with an online payment solution called Global Pay for Students (GPfS) to pay your tuition fees by card or by bank transfer, allowing you to pay tuition fees in full or make individual instalment payments. Global Pay for Students is provided by Convera (formerly Western Union Business Solutions): further details about Convera are available here.
Global Pay for Students offers the following options in most locations around the world, and we would encourage you to familiarise yourself with the options and process before you start your payment journey. You must select the country you are making the payment from (for example, Canada, if you are making your tuition fee payment while in Canada, or United Kingdom, if you are currently in the UK).
- Bank Transfer in GBP (£)
You can make a payment from any bank with no GBP fees charged: your quote through Convera will be valid for 72 hours and you can track the progress of your payment to the Royal Veterinary College.
- Pay Online from your Bank Account
You can pay online from your own bank account and your payment will be paid directly to the Royal Veterinary College.
- Online Card Payments: Pay by Debit or Credit Card
You can opt to pay using your debit card or credit card. The Royal Veterinary College accepts Visa and Mastercard.
- Pay your Tuition Fees in GBP but using your preferred Currency
Depending on where you are paying your fees from, you may be able to pay in another currency: the GBP amount you have specified will be paid to the Royal Veterinary College.
