Below is further information regarding our payment methods. Please note that on some courses we may not be able to offer all of these payment options. You should be aware that your booking is not confirmed until we have received your payment.


Payment queries

Credit and debit card

By paying with a credit or debit card, you have secured your place immediately.

Imperial College London accepts the following cards: Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard.

Please note we do not accept American Express. 

When you proceed to make a payment you will be transferred to a secure website which will take your payment.


Invoice option is only available for companies based within the UK and EU. For all other countries you have to pay either by credit card or bank transfer.

If you choose to pay by invoice, we will require the following from your company:

Companies based within the UK and EU
We require a purchase order (PO) which your finance department should be able to assist in raising for you. This acts as a guarantee for your payment.

What is a purchase order form?
It is a commercial document issued by the buyer to a seller indicating types, quantities and prices.

Why do we need a purchase order form?
We need a purchase order as it enables us to raise an invoice. Without a purchase order we are not able to raise an invoice.

Where do I get a purchase order from?
Your finance department should be able to help you raise a purchase order.

Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that a purchase order form is sent to us before the course commences.

Companies from the rest of the world
We are not able to raise invoice so payment has to be done either by credit card or bank transfer.

When will my booking be confirmed?
Your booking is confirmed when we have received your payment.

GL Journal (Internal transfer)

If you are an Imperial staff or student your fee can be paid with a GL Journal. Please contact CPD before making the booking.

We will send you our account details which you will need to forward to your finance contact within your department so that he/she can make the transfer. 

It is your responsibility to inform us when the transfer has been made and it is not until then that your place will be confirmed.
