If you are not a British Citizen or a citizen of one the European Economic Area (EEA) countries, you may need an entry clearance before you travel to the UK. The entry clearance certificate, more commonly called a visa, is placed in your passport or travel document. Comprehensive information regarding visas can be found via our Student Life centre. Unfortunately because of high demand and other factors, it can be difficult in some countries to obtain a visa. In recognition of this, the University of Salford like many other leading UK institutions has introduced an advance fee deposit system for certain countries in order to assist applicants from those countries to secure their visas. If you are required to pay an advance fee deposit then you will be notified of this in your initial offer letter. We will also give you clear instructions on how best to make this payment.
If you fail to pay your fees you may not be able to continue with your course. The University can offer support to students in certain circumstances. For more information please see our Student Life pages.
