by January 8, 2019

Geoswift, UnionPay International and Western Union have recently offered a joint tuition payment promotion available to Chinese students studying at more than 600 academic institutions in 11 countries.

The promotion is available only for Chinese students studying in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Switzerland, Singapore, Japan, Czech Republic and Austria who choose to pay at least RMB 10,000.

Eligible Chinese students studying abroad who pay their tuition in RMB are offered a complimentary Amazon gift card worth RMB 100, while supplies last.

To be eligible, students will need to make a qualifying RMB payment by selecting UnionPay on their institution’s WU® GlobalPay for Students platform and complete payment via Geoswift’s PayTuitionNow portal. The offer is available until March 31, 2019 and  available to UnionPay cardholders (card number starting with ’62’).

June Chen, General Manager of UnionPay International America said:

“Chinese students who study abroad and their families are a customer group to whom we attach great importance. On the one hand, we are making education payments a feature service of UnionPay cross-border online payments, providing solutions to the biggest pain point of tuition fee payments.”

“On the other, we are expanding our acceptance network in and near renowned schools, further enriching the card using channels by promoting innovative products like mobile QuickPass QR code payment.”
