You will receive an invoice by e-mail. You can pay in several ways:

  • SPONSOR Arrange for someone else to pay your fee. If you have a sponsor for your course then we can invoice the sponsor instead, however the sponsor must provide us with a purchase order or letter on headed paper stating your name and student number, the course, the duration and the amount of sponsorship to fees@cumbria.ac.uk
