International students tuition fees

Like all universities in the UK, Queen Mary charges two different rates of tuition fees, known as the Home rate and the Overseas rate.  International students are generally charged the Overseas rate, which is higher, as no Government subsidy is given to universities for international students to help meet the cost of their education.
