      Sponsored students

      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.

      What to do if you are a sponsored student

      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 or an official purchase order, which clearly states the following:

      • Your full name.
      • Full details of where the invoice should be sent, including Sponsor contact name, details, address and e-mail address.
      • Any reference or name that needs to be quoted on the invoice.
      • What fees are to be paid by the sponsor (tuition, accommodation or both).
      • Amount of money the Sponsor is contributing to tuition or accommodation costs (the value in GBP or percentage of the fees).
      • How long the sponsorship will last. For example, whether you are being sponsored for one academic year only or for every year of your course. If this changes, your Sponsor will need to send us another letter. For example, if you are being sponsored for one academic year only, but your sponsor later decides to sponsor you for every year of your course.

      If you tell us you are a sponsored student, but we don't receive a letter from your Sponsor you will be charged.

      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.

      Sponsorship letter

      Please send your sponsorship letter to ABS PG Accept.

      Please note: Tuition fee instalment plans are not applicable to sponsored students. Sponsors are required to make full payment within 30 days of the invoice date.

      CAS Questionnaire

      International students that require a visa will need to complete a pre-CAS questionnaire.

      PG Loan Students

      Students must complete:

      • Step 1: Fill out acceptance form
         
      • Step 2: Send evidence of applying for a PG Loan (it doesn't need to be a confirmation of the loan being granted, just evidence of applying for a loan)
