Overseas applicants who require a Tier 4 visa must pay the tuition fee deposit in order to receive their Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Why am I paying a fee deposit?

Payment of a fee deposit secures your place on the intended programme. If you do not pay a deposit by the specified deadline your offer will be declined by default and the place may be offered to another applicant.

If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK you are required to demonstrate that you are able to fund your studies when you make your visa application. You will be invited to pay your deposit by a specified deadline during the admissions process. Paying your fee deposit demonstrates your commitment to study at Queen Mary and we therefore require you to pay your deposit before issuing your Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS), in addition to meeting any academic and English language conditions.

When do I need to pay my deposit?

The deadline to pay your tuition fee deposit will be outlined in your offer letter and on the applicant portal.

For applicants holding a conditional offer under the conditional deposits scheme, this will typically be 8 weeks after you have received your offer. Please note, this will reduce closer to the start date.

How do I make payment?

You can make payment either by credit card or by direct bank transfer.

To pay by credit card, please follow these instructions:

  1. Go to https://epay.qmul.ac.uk/
  2. Select Option A "Online Payments"
  3. Complete your personal details (enter applicant ID in "Student ID/UCAS Number)
  4. Select "Tuition Fee Deposits"
  5. Make payment of required amount

For details to pay by direct bank transfer, please visit our payment methods webpage

 

My fees will be paid by a sponsor or I am receiving a scholarship. Do I need to pay a deposit?

If you are in receipt of a scholarship or your fees will be paid by a sponsor, you may be exempt from the university fee deposit. We do however require a formal letter from your sponsor confirming the arrangement. Please upload evidence of your sponsorship/scholarship to the portal before the required deadline.

I will be funding my studies using a UK postgraduate loan. Do I need to pay a deposit?

If you are planning to fund your studies using a UK postgraduate loan, we may waive the deposit, as long as you provide us with evidence of the loan award.

I am a current Queen Mary student with an offer of admission to a postgraduate course at Queen Mary. Will I be required to pay the deposit?

Students currently enrolled at Queen Mary are exempt from paying the deposit, regardless of whether they hold a conditional or unconditional offer. 

Will this affect my CAS?

Students requiring an overseas visa will require a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number before they can apply for a Tier 4 visa. You must pay your deposit before the CAS process can begin.

Please note that after payment of your deposit, any subsequent payments of university fees will not be automatically reflected in the CAS. Further advance payments have to be manually updated on the CAS and as such you should allow up to ten days for this to happen. Please factor this in when applying for a visa appointment in your home country. If you are concerned that your CAS has not been updated with an advance payment made by either you or your financial sponsor, please email: CAS-Admissions@qmul.ac.uk, clearly stating your full name, applicant ID, programme you have applied for, amount paid and the date of payment. If you do wish to make an advance university fee payment we recommend you do this after you have secured your visa. A CAS cannot be updated once the status has changed to 'Used'.

Once you have received your CAS, we recommend that you read more about how to apply for Tier 4 student immigration permission by referring to the following pages of the Advice and Counselling website.

It is particularly important that you refer to the section headed ‘How Much Money do I need to show?’ found under the ‘Funds for your Tier 4 visa application’ section of the Advice and Counselling guidance document: Applying for Tier 4 (General) Student immigration permission. This will help you to avoid having your visa application refused because you not shown that you have sufficient funds to cover your tuition fee and maintenance costs.

I have paid a fee deposit. Can I get a refund?

In response to COVID-19, we have introduced additional flexibility to support postgraduate applicants applying to Queen Mary University of London in the 2020/21 academic year. Please see our Deposit Refund Policy below for more information regarding eligibility for a deposit refund. 

University Fee Regulations

By accepting an offer of a place or enrolling on a programme, students agree to the terms of the University Fee Regulations. Details of the terms regarding fee deposits can be found in the University Fee Regulations, including special circumstances when a deposit may be refunded.

University Fee Regulations

Deposit Refund Policy for 2020-21

In response to COVID-19, we have introduced additional flexibility to support postgraduate applicants applying to Queen Mary University of London in the 2020/21 academic year. 

This policy applies to the 2020/21 academic year only, and is in accordance with the University Fee Regulations. 

Deposits may be refunded in the following circumstances: 

Travel and Immigration: 

  • If a student has applied for immigration permission in order to study at Queen Mary but this is refused. The immigration refusal notice must be provided by the student.
  • If a student is initially refused entry clearance (immigration permission) to travel to the UK and successfully appeals, but the appeal comes through too late to start their programme at Queen Mary on time. Documentary evidence must be provided by the student.
  • If a student is not able to apply for a visa because Queen Mary is unable to issue a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies.
  • If a student is unable to travel to commence their studies due to government restrictions on travel.  Documentary evidence must be supplied.

 

Changes to the advertised programme of study: 

  • If Queen Mary does not provide the programme as advertised.   This may include a change to the mode of delivery or a change to the advertised start date. 

If a student accepts a place on an alternative programme at Queen Mary, the deposit payment will normally be transferred to the new programme.  Refunds will not be granted if a student accepts an alternative programme. 

Failure to meet conditions of entry: 

  • If a student was required to pay the deposit in order to accept a conditional offer and the place is not confirmed because the student fails to meet the conditions of the offer. Documentary evidence must be provided in such cases, e.g. academic transcripts or certificates and/or English language test results*.

* Failure to take an English language test between the point of firm acceptance of offer and the intended date of enrolment will not be considered satisfactory grounds for a refund unless an approved English language test was not available in the country of domicile during this period. If a student defers their place to the next year of entry and they are required to take another English language test before joining the programme, they must provide an English language test certificate or other evidence that they have been unable to meet the English language requirement. In either case this evidence must be dated within six months of the start of the programme. 

  • If examinations have been cancelled by the awarding body, or if a student has been unable to take their exams due to COVID-19. 
  • If the student’s university is currently closed and/or if the student is unable to sit their examinations.  

We are aware that universities in the following countries have closed: 

  • Brazil
  • Bangladesh
  • Canada
  • Ghana
  • India 
  • Hong Kong
  • Kenya 
  • Malaysia
  • Mexico
  • Nigeria
  • Pakistan 
  • Singapore 
  • Sri Lanka
  • Thailand  
  • USA

For all other countries, documentary evidence to confirm the closure must be provided by the student.

Please note, a deposit is defined as any payment made towards fees in advance of the start of the programme. Once a student has enrolled, any deposit payment is credited towards the overall fee for the programme and standard fee regulations will apply.

All deposit refund requests must be made via the applicant portal. The request must be submitted within 30 days of the start date of your programme, as stated on your offer letter.

Queen Mary University of London will endeavour to process completed refund requests within 21 days of receipt, provided full information to process the claim has been received. Section 18.5 of the Fee Regulations applies to refunds of deposit monies, such that refunds will only be made to the original payee and in compliance with UK legislation.
