Tuition fee deposits for UK and EU students

If you have been assessed as a UK or EU fee payer who will be joining one of the courses listed below you will be required to pay a deposit towards your tuition fee in order to secure your place at Queen Mary University of London.

You will only be required to pay your deposit once your place has been confirmed, ie, after you have firmly accepted our offer and met any academic and/or English language conditions. You will receive an email request when you are required to pay this deposit. If your fees will be paid by a government sponsor we do not require you to submit a deposit; we do however, require a formal letter from your sponsor confirming the arrangement.

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

Tuition fee deposits may not be required for Distance Learning programmes (DL) or for programmes delivered outside the UK. Applicants will be advised of any tuition fee deposit requirements during the admissions process.

£2,000 deposit

£1000 deposit

£500 deposit

Your tuition fee deposit will be deducted from your overall tuition fee cost (for the first year of study) and you will only be required to make arrangements to pay the balance when you enrol.

Time of payment

If you have applied for one of the above courses and have been made an offer of a place you are required to pay a deposit towards your tuition fees. You should do so after you have accepted your offer of a place at Queen Mary AND met all the conditions outlined in your offer. The admissions office will send you a reminder email when you are required to do so.
