When it comes to paying for the SQE, you have two options:
We do not offer payment plans.
SQE fees are VAT exempt.
You must pay in full when you book your assessment.
We accept all major credit cards and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Visa Debit, Maestro and American Express.
Payment is via WorldPay.
The following information is for employers and training providers who wish to pay for an exam on behalf of a candidate.
Training providers and employers who are supporting candidates to sit an SQE assessment can purchase vouchers as an alternative to a candidate directly paying the assessment fee(s).
Vouchers can be used as payment for SQE1 or SQE2, and you need to specify which assessment sitting you require the voucher for. Vouchers are valid until the end of the relevant booking window. Once a voucher is redeemed, it cannot be reused. Vouchers are not for resale and they can not be swapped for an alternative assessment. Vouchers are not interchangeable; they are either for SQE1 or SQE2.
Note: Purchasing a voucher or a group of vouchers does not guarantee a seat. You are still required to complete the booking for your assessment and all seats are subject to availability.
Each voucher will have a unique code applicable to the value of the assessment being booked.
Vouchers available to purchase:
The voucher scheme is primarily for organisations booking multiple candidates. Vouchers can be purchased either as a one off or annually.
Contact Candidate Services to order vouchers
Any employer or training provider wanting to purchase vouchers by invoice will need to apply for a credit application using our Credit Application Form. Please contact Candidate Services to request a form.
Once we have completed the credit application process (which can take up to 10 working days), you will be given a credit limit and can purchase vouchers up to the value of that limit. The voucher is not a physical voucher but a code which represents the assessment which you have purchased. You will be sent the voucher(s) with confirmation of purchase. It may take approximately 48 hours to process and send out voucher codes.
When the order has been placed, an invoice will be issued for full payment following Kaplan’s standard 30-day invoice terms and conditions. Payment can be made by debit card, credit card, or by BACS.
An unused, unexpired voucher can be cancelled and refunded at any time before it expires for a fee of £50. The fee covers the cancellation of a single or multiple vouchers. Cancellation must be made in writing to Candidate Services. If the vouchers were purchased by invoice and the invoice has not been paid no administration fee will apply for cancelling the vouchers. Refunds will take approximately 14 days. A refund will be provided for any vouchers which have expired and have not been used. You do not need to request a refund as this will be done on your behalf. Please note vouchers can not be rolled over beyond the expiry date with a top up payment or otherwise.
Purchases of voucher(s) are subject to the Voucher Terms and Conditions. Booking of an assessment (including bookings where a voucher is being redeemed) is subject to the SQE Assessment Terms and Conditions which include cancellation terms.
Vouchers are purchased per assessment sitting, therefore they will expire at the end of the relevant booking window. Booking window closure dates can be found on the Timings page.
