Payments can be made by Bank Transfer or Bank Draft. Debit/credit card payments will only be accepted in person. Payments are not acceptable in cash.


Newman has five £9,000 scholarships for International students who achieve a high standard of secondary education. For more information, visit the International Scholarships page.
