EU students beginning courses in 2017

On October 11th 2016 Jo Johnson, Minister for Universities, Science and Research, announced that EU students who enrol at an English university in September 2017 will have access to loan support for the duration of their studies. It has also been confirmed that tuition fee levels for EU students who enter UK Higher Education in September 2017 will remain at the same level of that of UK students for the duration of their studies.

We hope this provides assurance to you about funding your studies at QMUL from September 2017. If you have any further questions please contact EUStudents@qmul.ac.uk where help will be on hand. We look forward to seeing you as you start your studies with us in September 2017.

On April 21st 2017 Jo Johnson, Minister for Universities, Science and Research, announced that EU students who enrol at an English university in September 2018 will pay the same tuition fees as UK students for the duration of their course, and will be eligible for student loans throughout their courses (even after the UK exits the EU). 

The tuition fees for UK and EU students who enrol at Queen Mary University of London in 2018 are not yet set. If you have any further questions please contact EUStudents@qmul.ac.uk where help will be on hand.

Standard tuition fee rates

Full-time taught postgraduate degrees (including MA, MSc, MRes)

£8,200 for classroom-based subjects
£8,700 for lab-based subjects

Non-standard tuition fee rates

Some taught postgraduate programmes have non-standard rates. These include certain masters degrees in subjects such as Business and Management, Economics, Finance, Law, Medicine and Dentistry. Tuition fee rates for postgraduate certificate (PG Cert) and diploma (PG Dip) programmes are normally set at one-third and two-thirds respectively of the masters degree rate.

Continuing students on full-time and part-time courses

Students on a course lasting more than one year are charged fees each year. An inflationary uplift is applied to the fees charged in the second year and subsequent years of the programme. In 2017-18 fees for continuing students will reflect a 2.8% inflationary increase from 2016-17 fee rates. When the inflationary increase is applied, fees are generally rounded up to the nearest £10.

Variable mode programmes

Students on variable mode programmes are invoiced for the full programme fee at the start of the course, but have the option of entering into a payment plan to pay the fee over two years. There is an administrative charge of £50 for payment plans.

Additional fees

Some courses include compulsory field trips, the cost of which is additional to the tuition fees. You will be notified of any additional fee with your offer of admission.
