I have accepted my place at Queen Mary, but have a student finance application with another university – what do I do?
What happens if my Student Finance is delayed?
Am I eligible for a QMUL Bursary?
The 2016-17 Bursary package is as follows:
£1,571 each year for students whose household income is less than £25,000 (and who are eligible for income assessed Student Finance)
£1,256 each year for students with a household income between £25,001 and £42,600 (and who are eligible for income assessed Student Finance)
You do not need to make a separate application for the QMUL Bursary. To receive a QMUL Bursary you must have applied to your regional student funding authority for income assessed UK government financial support, as such this Bursary is only available to Home students. Unless you have indicated otherwise, your assessment will automatically be sent to the QMUL Bursaries, Grants and Scholarships Office (BGS). This information must be received by 31 July 2017. Find out more about our QMUL Bursaries.
Where can I find more information on student finance?
Will there be spaces left in QMUL halls of residence?
QMUL has set aside a quota of 100 rooms to be allocated to Clearing applicants. These rooms will be allocated on a random ballot system to applicants who submit their online housing application by Wednesday 24 August (midnight BST). In order to submit your housing application you must be placed at QMUL, i.e. you must be holding an unconditional firm (UF) offer. The Admissions Office will send login details for the housing application system to applicants once their status is confirmed as UF on UCAS. Please note your accommodation account will usually become active 24 hours after you receive the login details from Admissions. If you wish your application for accommodation to be entered into the ballot it is very important that you accept your offer of a Clearing place at QMUL as soon as possible.
The ballot will be drawn on Thursday 25 August and successful applicants will be sent an email confirmation and housing offer on Friday 26 August.
Applicants who are unsuccessful in the ballot will be assisted in finding alternative housing, this is because Clearing and Adjustment applicants fall outside the current priority group under the Housing Policy.
Applicants with a Greater London home address will not be eligible to be entered into the ballot, your application will be held on a waiting list for mid-term vacancies. Applicants not entered into the ballot will also be assisted in finding alternative housing.

Where can I buy things like pots, pans and bedding to kit out my accommodation?
Do many students commute to campus?
Can I make contact with other Queen Mary students before I arrive?
I have a confirmed place at QMUL, how do I apply for a CAS?
After your place has been confirmed you will receive a CAS request email with details for your MySIS account. Once you are logged on to your MySIS portal you will be able to submit all the relevant information needed to request a CAS. If you are required to pay a deposit this must be paid before the CAS can be issued, details regarding deposits can be found on our website and also in your MySIS portal.
If we have received all the relevant information, the details provided have been verified as correct by you and you are eligible to study in the UK, you will receive your CAS, via email. If additional information is required this process will take longer. We will aim to send your CAS within five working days but it can take longer if additional information is required. Please ensure you regularly check your email account.
