If a Sponsor is paying your Tuition Fees

If you are in receipt of sponsorship for your tuition fees (this does not include family members or friends who may decide to make payments on your behalf) you should:

  • obtain a letter from your sponsor confirming that they accept responsibility for fee payment;
  • post the letter to the Finance Division at the earliest possible date, but to arrive at least 7 working days prior to your on-line registration or alternatively email it to 

This does not apply to students who receive funding through the Student Loans Company as this information will be sent to Cardiff University electronically.

In accordance with Cardiff University Financial Procedures, if your sponsor fails to make due payment of the tuition fees, you will become personally responsible for full payment and please be aware that this will effect your ability to receive an award from the University. It is also your responsibility to ensure that your sponsor is made aware that tuition fees are payable within 30 days of the invoice date. If payment has not been received by this date you will become personally responsible for paying the full tuition fee.
