What is a Direct Debit?
A Direct Debit is an instruction from you to your bank/building society to authorise Queen’s University to collect tuition fee payments from your bank account. Direct Debit safeguards and guarantees mean that no changes in the amount, date or frequency to be debited can be made without notifying you at least 10 working days in advance of your account being debited. In the event of any error, you are entitled to an immediate refund from your bank or building society. You have the right to cancel a Direct Debit Instruction at any time simply by writing to your bank or building society with a copy to us.
Setting up a Direct Debit
This can be set up by you, a parent, guardian, relative or friend but they must have a UK bank account. Most UK current accounts at banks and building societies will accept a Direct Debit Instruction but it is the account holder's responsibility to check this with their bank or building society.
