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.

To arrange an instalment plan please refer to the Instalment plan guidance page.

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.

Further details can be found in Sections 5 & 6 of the University Fee Regulations.

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.

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