Leeds enjoys a much lower cost of living than London and the South of England. Our international tuition fees are designed to offer value for money.

We offer a 2% early payment discount if full payment is made before 31 August.

International students can send payments through the Leeds Arts University Flywire payment site.

Deposit & Payment

We require a non-refundable tuition fee deposit of £2,000. If you require a Student Route visa to study in the UK, we also require a £21 administration charge for your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies number (CAS).  

Deposits and tuition fee payments should be paid in your local currency through our partner Flywire. Various payment options are offered through Flywire depending on the country the payment originates from, including bank transfer and credit/debit card. Click here to access the University Flywire payment portal.

On receipt of your deposit and providing you have met all academic conditions, you will be sent a UKVI Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number. You will need your CAS to apply for your Student Route student visa. We issue CAS from March onwards - please ensure you make your visa application without delay.
