How to Make the Payment
Tuition fees are paid by direct debit and in the case of master's degrees and doctoral programmes, these can also be paid by either credit or debit card.
When payment is made by card, this cannot be made in instalments.
When payment is made by direct debit, this can be:
1. In a single payment: the amount of the registration fee can be debited from your bank account on the same day that you formalise this. The enrolment form indicates the date from which you can make the payment.
2. In three instalments: only if you formalise enrolment before 31 October. 30% of the fees corresponding to enrolled credits, in addition to the total sum of all obligatory and optional administrative fees, is charged to your bank account from the same day that you formalise enrolment. A further 30% will be charged to your bank account from 15 November, with the remaining 40% being charged from 20 December.
Your bank account (the details of which must include the IBAN code and, if the institution is not located in Spain, its BIC code), must pertain to a financial institution located within the European Union, Andorra, Vatican City, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, the United Kingdom, San Marino or Switzerland.
Students who formalise their enrolment as conditional grant holders can pay by direct debit only and cannot pay through instalments.
Payment can also be made by taking out a loan. For this purpose, you must have an account number, update your bank details if necessary, and select the "Prestec AGAUR" payment method.
Please Keep in Mind
In order to enrol, you must have all necessary bank details to hand so as to provide information on direct debit.
If you request changes to enrolment and this entails an additional payment, this must be paid in a single payment by direct debit. The fee will charged to your bank account from the date of resolution.
If you formalise your enrolment as a grant holder, you can pay in advance. If you have applied for a grant and this cannot yet be processed due to the lack of application form or other documentation, or if you have applied for this but have not been accepted, this represents a modification of enrolment. Consequently, you have to pay the difference resulting in a single payment, therefore, you must pay the outstanding balance in a single payment, which will be charged after 10 days following the date of resolution, without effect on any outstanding postponed-payment deadlines.
