Fees and Funding

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. Find out how your tuition fee status is assessed.

Fee Increase

The university may increase future university fees for continuing students by an amount defined each academic year. The increase in university fees for unregulated university
fees in 21/22 will be 1.8 %. Future fee increase for unregulated fee will not be more than 3%

Tuition fees

Tuition fees can be found on the ‘Fees and Funding’ tab of each of the programme pages as outlined below:

You must pay your tuition fees before you enrol for each academic year. Please refer to the enrolment page for key dates:

You will receive an invoice by email before the start of your course each year, typically in late August or early September. The invoice will be sent once you complete the online enrolment via MySIS.  If you would like to make a fee payment before mid-late August and your Admissions status is Unconditional Firm (UF) please visit MySis where the amount payable can be found in the My Finance section. 

If you have not received your invoice, please check your email junk folder. If you would like a copy of your invoice, please email along with your Student ID Number.

Your fee status determines the rate of fees that you will pay for your course at Queen Mary.

Your fee status depends on:

  • Nationality
  • Immigration status in the UK
  • Where you have been living and your vocation for the three years prior to the start of your course.
  • If you applied for immigration permission to study at Queen Mary but this is refused, and you were unable to travel to or remain in the UK to study at Queen Mary. You must provide an immigration refusal notice
  • You are initially refused entry clearance to travel to the UK and your successful appeal comes through too late to start at Queen Mary on time. Documentary evidence must be provided.
  • If Queen Mary does not provide the programme as advertised.
  • If you are required to pay a deposit to accept a conditional offer and the place is not confirmed because you don’t meet the conditions of the offer.
  • If you can’t apply for a visa because Queen Mary is unable to issue a CAS.

The Admissions Team will assess the information in your application with UK Government regulations to set your fee status.

Unsure of what your fee status is? Visit our fee status assessment page

The fee status assessment will remain in place for the course of your studies. Some students(( can be considered for home fees after starting their course.

If you meet one of the UKCISA categories, you will need to complete a fee status questionnaire (

You will be charged a reduced fee if you are on a full year abroad or industrial placement as part of your course. Please refer to the university fee schedules

Students whose university fees are £10,000 or higher will receive a 1% discount if they pay their fees in full before enrolment. The prompt payment discount applies to students who pay the overseas rate of fees on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and Home students on postgraduate programmes. It does not apply to 'Home fee' paying undergraduate students and Channel Islands or Isle of Man students, where the fees are regulated by the UK government.

You are strongly advised to deduct 1% from the full tuition fee and pay 99% rather than paying full fees with the view of applying for a refund. If you have already paid full tuition fees, you will need to submit a refund request via MySIS before January 31st for September starters and before 30th April for January starters. 

A debtor flag is placed on the records of students with overdue fees. The debt might be a field trip, tuition fee or other charges. You can view your fee account under the My Finances section on MySIS. If you need further information about this debt or believe that there is an error, please contact the Fees office.

You may also be flagged as a debtor if you are a sponsored student and we have not yet processed your sponsor letter.  If you believe this may be the case with your red flag, please contact

Your invoice will always quote your full tuition fees as shown on your offer letter. The invoice will not deduct any upfront payments or deposit payments.

You are not expected to pay the full invoice amount if you have already made a payment towards your fees. You are only expected to pay the balance after deducting your upfront payments.

An up-to-date statement of your account is shown under the MyFinance section of MySIS. This will show your current balance and amount to pay.


Total fee: £20,000

Deposit paid £2,000

(Invoice will show £20,000)

Amount to pay: £20,000 - £2000 =  £18,000

If you are paying in full before enrolment to take advantage of the 1% discount you must also deduct the 1% discount. The 1% discount is against the invoice amount. In the example above the 1% discount would be £200 therefore you would pay £18,000 - £200 = £17,800

If your tuition fee is more than £1000, you can arrange a payment plan with the Fees office to pay by instalments.

Full details and the link to the online payment plan portal can be found here

International students must pay at least 50% upfront before enrolment. The remaining 50% can be paid by 31st January or in four instalments up to 31st January. The £2000 deposit can go towards the first 50%. The £50 admin charge is payable with the first instalment only.

Deposit Paid:     £2,000

Amount due before enrolment:                £8,000 or £10,000 if no deposit paid + £50 admin charge
