If your university fees are £10,000 or higher, you are entitled to a 1% discount if you pay your fees in full before enrolment. It is strongly advised to deduct the 1% prompt payment discount from the full tuition fee and pay 99%, rather than paying full fees with the view of applying for a refund.

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/continuing EU undergraduate students and Channel Islands or Isle of Man students, where the fees are regulated by the UK government. 

Further details can be found in Section 7 of the University Fee Regulations.

If your fees are more than £1,000 per year, you can pay in instalments. This does not apply to Pre-sessional programmes, short courses and one-semester Study Abroad Associate programmes.

All Postgraduates, Overseas and Overseas EU undergraduate students must pay at least 50% of the self-funding portion of the tuition fee before arranging a payment plan. There is a £50 non-refundable charge for paying in instalments. This charge does not apply to home fee paying undergraduate students.

Home fee paying undergraduate students must pay at least 25%.

UK Postgraduate loan only: If you are in receipt of a Postgraduate Master’s or Doctorial loan, you must email a copy of your loan entitlement letter to Please include your student ID number in the subject of the email.

To arrange a payment plan please refer to the Payment plan guidance page.

If your fees are paid in full or in part by a UK government agency (such as FCDO or the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission), a foreign government, employer or official body such as an international scholarship organisation, you must provide a letter from your sponsor before you enrol. 

Please email an official sponsorship letter to The letter should include the following on a company-headed paper:

  • Student's full name and student/applicant ID number
  • Invoice address
  • Invoice contact person and contact details
  • Sponsorship amount
  • Academic year(s)
  • Programme name
  • Purchase order number (if required)

Please note Queen Mary will only accept sponsors if they pass a credit check and are agreeing to pay the fees directly to Queen Mary. Until the letter is provided, a student is deemed to be self-funding. If you or your parents/guardians/friends are paying your tuition fees on your behalf, you are classed as 'Self-funded'. 

Further details can be found in Section 10 of the University Fee Regulations.

Queen Mary University of London bankers, Barclays plc, in common with other UK banks are subjected to a series of regulations surrounding international payments that originate directly or indirectly from a number of countries which are subjected to economic sanction. These countries are

Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Myanmar (Burma), North or South Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Russia.

Students must NOT make payment originating from these countries without the University’s approval. This can be obtained by contacting Hardeep Gill:

You must ensure that any payments from sponsors to the University are only for amounts due to the University. Any monies due to you from the sponsor must be made directly to you.

Should you be in any doubt about whether a payment falls into this category, or wish to discuss this further, please contact Hardeep Gill, for further information.

Keeping you safe and secure

We have to comply with strict Government regulations designed to stop money laundering. Unfortunately, this means our payment methods are restricted, and we cannot take payment from you in cash. We realise that this is inconvenient, and we hope that you understand this is for the long-term safety of our students.

Cash will not be accepted over the counter at our bank.
