Delete the before the last word. That's because you have not mentioned a particular uni.

When will you pay your uni fee? would be a simpler way to put it.

It is unclear which school you mean.

It is unclear which school you mean.

I mean the sentence usage. "University fee" might have its definite term. Because I never heard someone say uni fee before. I heard only "school fee".

It's important to be clear. While school and college are often used as synonyms for university in American English, that is not the case in British English. They can be used in the name of a particular university or part of one in the UK, but, they are not used to mean universities in general.


If you mention school fees you give the impression that you mean fees for children to attend private schools. If you mean fees to attend universities, they are generally referred to as just fees or loans.


You have a choice. If you have already established with someone that you are discussing attending a university, you can ask When will you pay your fees? If you have not established the context, you can ask When will you pay your university fees?
