Fees and funding

We recognise that studying at a top-rated University is a major undertaking both personally and financially. If you are wondering how much it will cost you to go to university and how to apply for student finance, this section has all the relevant information.

There is financial support available in the form of a tuition fee loan, maintenance loan and a range of bursaries for students resident in the UK, and scholarships with different eligibilty criteria and application routes.

Queen Mary University London charges you for course tuition with fees varying depending on whether you are a Home/EU or an international student.

UK and EU students

  • £9,250 if you are a new student starting your course in 2018-19.
  • £9,000 if you are a continuing student and started your course in 2012-13 or thereafter.

Tuition fees for UK and EU undergraduate students enrolled at QMUL in 2018 will be set in accordance with the levels permitted by the UK Government.  Tuition fees are likely to increase each subsequent year from 2018 and these increases will be in line with UK Government policy. Students from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man are charged the Home/EU rate for EECS courses.

International Students

Like all universities in the UK, tuition fees at QMUL are higher for international students from outside the EU as the university does not receive government subsidy for international students to help meet the cost of their education.

Queen Mary will send you an invoice in August, which will represent the charge for the full academic year you are enrolled on. If you choose to accept a place at Queen Mary, it is your responsibility to ensure that your tuition fees are paid when they are due. Fees due in any academic year are payable prior to or at enrolment.

Students who are UK residents should apply as early as possible to determine their eligibility for:

  • Tuition Fee Loan
  • Maintenance Loan

For UK residents there is funding available through the Student Loans Company. The arrangements for repaying your tuition fee and maintenance loans have been designed to make higher education as affordable as possible. You will not have to start repaying your loans until the April after you graduate and are earning at least £21,000 a year. Income-related repayments will be deducted automatically from your earnings through the tax system.

We have a wide range of opportunities with different eligibilty criteria and application routes for Undergraduates. Most scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit; some are issued automatically upon exam results and others require a separate application.

In addition to our scholarships, Queen Mary provides a generous range of bursaries. These are awarded based on household income/financial need and are generally for UK residents only.

As a student you will also have maintenance or living costs, especially if you move away from home. This can include rent, bills, travel, textbooks and other living expenses.
