Providing banking details

To receive University funding you must first provide details of a UK bank account.

We are only able to make maintenance payments into UK based accounts.  If you need to open an account before you are in the UK, although we cannot help you with this there are some organisations that do provide this service, some examples are:

https://www.revolut.com/
https://monese.com/ 

Please be aware we are not supporting or endorsing these companies or their services. You must make your own decision on whether to use them.

We make payments by BACS (Bankers Automated Clearing System). We can't make direct payments to international (including Republic of Ireland) bank accounts. We process payments on Tuesdays, and you'll need to input your bank details at least a week in advance to receive a payment.

What you need to do

 

Current students

  • Log into Minerva using your IT username and password
  • Click the ‘Student Services’ icon in the toolbar (top right)
  • Select “Payments and Financial Support”
  • Select “Provide bank details for Financial Support Payment”
  • If you are prompted to “Select a term”, select the default value
  • Click “Submit”
  • Enter the UK bank account details accurately. This should be an eight-digit account number and a six-digit sort code (without hyphens or spaces). If you are unsure of either of them you'll need to consult your bank account statement, or check with the bank.
