Important message to EU students

Following the result of the UK's EU Referendum, the Minister for Universities and Science, Jo Johnson, confirmed on Monday 27 June 2016 that students from EU countries who are currently at UK universities, and those starting this autumn, will receive student loan support for the duration of their studies.

We can confirm that for EU students starting their studies with us in 2016, your course fees will remain the same as those for home students following the same course for the normal duration of your programme. You can also read a message from our President and Principal, Professor Simon Gaskell regarding this.

We hope this provides assurance to you of QMUL's commitment to our EU students. If you have any further questions please contact where help will be on hand. We look forward to seeing you as you start your studies in September 2016.

Tuition fees for taught postgraduate courses 2016-17 [PDF 788KB] Updated document UPDATED 15/05/17

Standard tuition fee rates

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

£7,950 for classroom-based subjects
£8,450 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 2016-17 fees for continuing students will reflect a 1.5% inflationary increase from 2015-16 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.
