^ This applies only to students who do not have a postgraduate loan and who are paying their own fees. Instalment plans for students who are in receipt of a postgraduate loan from the SLC will be matched to the schedule of SLC disbursements.

* This represents the end of the month following the course start date e.g. for an October starter the 2nd month would be November and the 4th month would be January.
