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 accepts the following cards: Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard and American Express. 

When you proceed to make a payment you will be transferred to WorldPay's payment screens. This is a secure website and will take your payment.

I have changed my mind and would like to pay the course fee via a credit or debit card instead. What do I do?

  • Log into your account
  • Click on the course
  • Change the payment option to credit or debit card payment


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

Companies based within the UK and Europe
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
Please complete the customer set-up form which we will send to you.

What is a customer setup form?
It is a form used by our finance department to set up your company in our finance system. 

What is the billing address?
This is the address where the invoice should go including a contact/department who is responsible for the payment. This may be different from the delegate's address. We also require a named person and their email address. 

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


Please make cheques payable to Imperial College London. We will need to receive it two weeks before the start of the course to be able to secure your place on the course.

GL Journal (Internal transfer)

If you are an Imperial staff or student your fee can be paid with a GL Journal. When making the booking please choose the invoice option as your payment option.

As soon as the booking has been made we will send you our account details which you will need to forward to your finance contact within your deparment 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.
