Western Union has announced a partnership between Western Union Business Solutions and Ritsumeikan University.

They aim to enable Ritsumeikan students to pay tuition using a simplified payment process that helps ensure funds arrive on-time and in-full, with no hidden charges.

Ritsumeikan University has implemented Western Union Business Solutions’ WU GlobalPay for Students platform, which provides students with a price comparison tool and allows them to lock-in exchange rates for up to 72 hours.

Students can pay in their local or preferred currency to minimize surprise expenses and transparently track their payment status through the online portal, mobile messages and email.

Besides, GlobalPay for Students simplifies payment reconciliation to help free up financial and administrative resources for educational institutions.

Ritsumeikan University is a leader in the recruitment of international students in Japan and we are proud to provide the GlobalPay for Students platform to this prestigious institution. With no software to install, the platform provides a simple path for Ritsumeikan University to manage their international student payments easily
