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.

Credit / Debit Card

Credit and debit card payments can be accepted via bank transfer. Please contact DBS@brunel.ac.uk for further information. 

Please do not send any credit or debit card details in the post.

Payment over the phone

Applicants can pay by phone by calling the Income Office on 01895 265264, between the hours of 10am to 1pm Monday-Friday (telephone payments only). You will need to quote your Brunel student number. 

 

Once payment has been completed you will be given a receipt, if you have paid over the phone this receipt will be sent to you in the post. 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.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office on 01895 265265 or by email at DBS@brunel.ac.uk
