You can pay your residence and / or tuition fees by card online using our payment platform, called Global Pay for Students.
This allows you or your parents, to pay your fees in the currency of your choice, giving you a simple, quick, and secure way to make a payment.
Please be aware:
We do not offer the option to make a payment in GBP with a non-UK issued card.
Converting money from one currency to another is a relatively low-cost task for a financial services provider. However, transferring that money across a country border is very expensive for the end recipient who’s paying the cost of the transfer. Foreign currency exchange providers often charge a foreign exchange margin to cover the costs of these transactions.
Our partner Convera offers multiple competitively priced alternative payment options through GlobalPay for Students, including bank transfers and other real time options.
Important to know: This does NOT impact pounds sterling (GBP) payments with cards issued in the United Kingdom.
Your Payment Options
We strongly recommend that you avoid converting your local currency into GBP and loading it on to a credit card issued outside of the UK, and instead either:
- Convert and deposit your GBP funds into an accessible bank account where you can make your payment to King’s College via an international bank transfer on GPfS (making sure you familiarise yourself with any associated transfer costs that your bank/a third party may charge)
- Make your payment using one of the alternative local currency options provided on GPfS.
If you need further help or support with your payment through the GPfS platform, feel free to contact our Credit Control team.
