Students outside Queens' building


We are delighted that you are considering coming to study at Queen Mary University of London as part of the Study Abroad programme. 

Applications for September 2023 are now open and close on Wednesday 31 May 2023.

If you have any questions please contact us on


You can apply to our Study Abroad programme in the following ways:

  • Submit a direct application via our application links below (please scroll down). 

Please follow our step-by-step application guidelines carefully in order to submit a correct and complete application for assessment.

  • Through your home university. You should consult the Study Abroad Advisor at your home institution to see whether you have an existing partner agreement with Queen Mary University of London and to check whether there are any special application arrangements.

  • Through a Study Abroad partner provider such as, for example, Arcadia, CAPA, IES and IFSA. Please check these organisations’ application procedures, and note that we consider applications from these routes equally and on their individual merits.

If you want to apply to study with us on the Study Abroad programme, you first need to check your eligibility. You need to meet the following requirements:

Academic requirements

  • You must have already completed a minimum of one year of university-level study
  • You must have a minimum CGPA of 3.0/4.0 or equivalent. If you are graded on a different grading scheme, you are still welcome to apply – we welcome a range of international qualifications. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact us at
  • Further details can be found here on our academic information page. 

English language requirements

  • If your first language is not English or you have not studied in an English-speaking education system, we will need you to prove your English language proficiency by taking internationally validated tests, such as IELTS. This still applies to you if:
    - your first language is English but you have not studied in an English-speaking education system
    - you hold a UK passport and your first language is English, but you have not studied in an English-speaking education system
  • You must meet the minimum requirements of the University in order to be eligible for the programme. Please refer to the English Language Requirements Page, which outlines the requirements for each Queen Mary department. If you are planning to take modules from across different departments the highest score will be required; for example, if you take one Arts module and three Social Sciences modules you will need IELTS 7.0 or equivalent.

At the point of application, you will need to provide:

  • an up-to-date official transcript on university headed paper, outlining the classes you have taken so far, and your GPA or equivalent. This must be in English.
  • a reference (letter of recommendation) written by an academic member of staff who has taught you in some capacity at your current university. 
  • English Language evidence as outlined above, if required. 

Please note the below application deadlines:

Deadline for September entry: 31 May
Deadline for January entry: 24 October

Applications may be considered after these dates if places are still available but it is in your interest to apply as early as possible, as applications are considered on a rolling basis. Late applicants may not be able to obtain housing on campus or register for their preferred modules. Please contact us if you wish to submit a late application on
