Bank transfer

Bank transfers can be made from a UK or non-UK bank account. You must quote your battels number (found towards the top right of the statement) and your family name as a reference.

If your bank is not UK-based, it may charge you an administrative fee to make an international transfer. Please ensure that the sum that reaches the College matches the full amount due in GBP.

Debit and credit cards

The College accepts most debit and credit cards other than Diners Club and American Express. Payment can be made by telephone or in person in the Accounts Office. We do not recommend sending card details by email. When making card payments please try to make sure you know your PIN if you have one, that you have a sufficient balance or credit limit on your account and that you are aware of any transaction limits on your account (e.g. a maximum value for a single transaction or a maximum daily limit).

Please note that there is an administrative charge of 2% for credit card payments.

Cheque

Cheques should be made payable to St Antony’s College, should include the date, the amount in numbers and in words and be signed by the account holder. Cheques with a date later than the day they are presented (post-dated cheques) will not normally be accepted.

Cheques in US Dollars and Euros can be accepted, but will incur bank charges that will reduce the amount of the payment credited to your account and take approximately two weeks to clear. The exchange rate used to calculate the value of your payment will be the rate used by the bank on the date that it arrives in the College bank account.

Travellers’ cheque

To pay by travellers’ cheque you will need to visit the Accounts Office. You will be asked to countersign the cheque/(s) in front of a member of staff so that they can
verify that your signature matches the first signature already shown on the cheque/(s).

Cash

Payment can be made in cash by visiting the Accounts Office and a receipt can be provided on request. Whilst it can sometimes be necessary or convenient to
pay by cash the College advises against carrying or keeping large sums in cash if at all possible.
