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

According to the press release, the partnership will enable Ritsumeikan students worldwide to pay tuition using a simplified payment process that helps ensure funds arrive on-time and in-full, without 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. 

Besides, students can pay in their local or preferred currency to minimise surprise expenses and transparently track their payment status through the online portal, mobile messages, and email. GlobalPay for Students also simplifies payment reconciliation to help free up financial and administrative resources for educational institutions.

Ritsumeikan University, established in 1869, currently hosts nearly 2,400 international students from 68 countries and regions, making it one of the most diverse, multicultural universities in Japan. 

Western Union Business Solutions is a trusted payment provider that has moved over USD 14 billion on behalf of education providers.
