Payments will take different lengths of time to reflect on your online statement depending on the payment method:

  • GlobalPay for students: Can take up to 10 working days for international bank transfers to be received by the University. Once received, the payment should reflect within 2 working days.
  • Online debit or credit card payments: should reflect within 2 working days of the payment being made.

If your online payment has been unsuccessful please contact your bank or credit card provider as the University is not able to determine the reasons for payments being unsuccessful or declined.

If your payment does not reflect after 10 working days, then we would advise that you contact SID and provide them with the payment details, quoting your nine digit Exeter student number and name. We can then investigate the transaction.
