The above mentioned international student fees cover the tuition fee only and do not cover accommodation charges or living costs. All international undergraduate tuition fees are paid annually for the duration of the course and remain the same throughout the degree programme.
At Wrexham Glyndwr University, we know that our international students often get caught out by annoying transfer fees when paying their tuition fees. We don't think that's fair, so we've teamed up with TransferMate to help you pay your fees without wasting precious funds on additional fees or charges. This online system makes it easier and cheaper for you to pay your student fees and accommodation.

Postgraduate courses - ATAS
If you are a visa-national student who is studying a postgraduate qualification in certain sensitive subject areas, you may be required to apply for ATAS clearance before we issue a CAS.
Whether you need an ATAS certificate depends on your specific area of study. If you do need it, and you are making a Student Visa application to study at Wrexham Glyndŵr University you will need to obtain the ATAS certificate before you will be issued with a CAS. Your conditional offer letter will let you know whether or not ATAS clearance is necessary.
If you have other time-limited immigration permission, you will still need an ATAS certificate before you can start the course, if it is in one of the specific subject areas.
For more information about which subject areas and qualifications that require an ATAS certificate and to apply online please visit the below link, this link also provides a list of countries where nationals of certain countries are not required to provide an ATAS.
There is no charge for applying for an ATAS certificate and there is no limit to the amount of times you can apply for an ATAS certificate.
It can take between 20 to 30 working days for an ATAS certificate to be issued and sometimes longer during busy periods. If your course requires ATAS clearance please make sure you start the process as soon as possible after receiving your conditional offer letter.
If you already have an ATAS certificate for your programme, and your area of research has changed or your research is taking longer than expected, you must apply for a new certificate.
If you have not had a response from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) about your ATAS application within four weeks, check your Spam or Junk folder in case it has been filtered out. You can also contact the ATAS Team at the FCO via their website if you think you have missed their response.
