The DBS application currently costs £46.81 (if you are in the UK, and £57.81 if you are applying from outside the UK), this amount is subject to change. Please be aware the payment is non refundable and the payment must be made before we can initiate your DBS application and send you log in information.

Home and EU fee paying applicants on the BSc/MSc Occupational Therapy and the BSc/MSc in Physiotherapy are not required to pay for the DBS. We will initiate your application once you hold an Unconditional Firm offer of a place.

All payments must be made through eVision or the University cash office at least two working days prior to attending any ID checking session.

How to make the payment:

  • Online payment

    We recommend you make the payment online, by logging into the eVision student application portal. Once you have logged in you should go to the 'My application' section, scroll down to 'application details' and select the ‘View details’ button at the bottom of the page. If you have an eVision account that has been converted from an applicant to student profile, then the task can be found in the 'my Checklist' tab. Then select the 'DBS Check Payment' option and follow the instructions

  • Paying by cheque

    Cheques can be paid in to the cash office in person or be sent in to the cash office by post. Cheques should be made payable to Brunel University London. Please be sure to enclose a cover letter with your name, course and student number (this is your 7 digit student ID number), not your UCAS/UTT ID along with the cheque.
  • Paying by cash

    Cash payments can only be accepted in person at the cash office.

  • Paying by credit/debit card

    Credit/Debit card payments can be accepted in person at the cash office. You can also pay by phone by calling the Cash Office on 01895 265264, between the hours of 9.15am to 1pm and 2.15pm to 4.15pm (telephone payments only). You will need to quote your Brunel University student number. Please do not send any credit/debit card details in the post.

Once payment has been complete you will be given a receipt, if you have paid over the phone this receipt will be sent to you in the post and we will need to see it at the ID checking session. Please keep this receipt in a safe place as without confirmation of payment we will not be able to complete your DBS check fully and this may delay your registration.

The Cash Office is located on the ground floor of the Bannerman Centre, their opening hours for visitors are Monday to Friday from 9.15am to 1pm. The Cash Office does not open for visitors in the afternoon or at weekends, but you can make a payment over the phone.
