You are a "sponsored student" if all or part of your tuition or accommodation fees will be paid by an external organisation (not a family member). This may be an employer, a government/embassy or scholarship funding organisation. Aston University will send an invoice directly to your sponsor.
Once you have accepted a place at Aston, let us know as soon as possible that you are a sponsored student. Ask your Sponsor to write a letter on their company headed paper, which clearly states the following:
Two copies of the letter will need to be sent to Aston University. One copy should be sent to Credit Control, Finance Department, Aston University, Aston Triangle, Birmingham, United Kingdom, B4 7ET. The second copy should be sent to the relevant Admissions Office (as detailed on your offer letter).
If you tell us you are a sponsored student, but we don't receive a letter from your Sponsor you won't be able to enrol until we receive it. Please note that we reserve the right to reject a sponsor letter and if your sponsor does not pay, you will be personally responsible for payment of the debt.
