You must pay your tuition fees before full enrolment each academic year. Enrolment dates can be found on the Enrolment & Temporary Enrolment Deadlines page

In 2024/25 the final enrolment dates are: 

New Student:  4th October 2024*

Continuing Students: 6th October 2024 

Your fee amount is shown on your offer letter, your invoice, MySIS (My Finances) and our website

New Student Fees: https://www.qmul.ac.uk/courses/ 

Continuing fees: https://arcs.qmul.ac.uk/students/finances/tuition-fees/ 

*New students who do not pay by this date will be given temporary enrolment with a payment deadline of 11th October 2024.

If your tuition fee is more than £1000, you can arrange an instalment plan with the Fees office to pay by instalments. This does not apply to Pre-sessional programmes, short courses and one-semester Study Abroad Associate programmes.

Full details can be found on the tuition fee instalment page and the link to the online instalment plan portal

There is a non-refundable administration fee of £50 to pay by instalments. This charge does not apply to home fee-paying undergraduate students. This fee can be paid online

Your fee status determines the rate of fees that you will pay for your course at Queen Mary.

The Admissions Team will assess the information in your application with UK Government regulations to set your fee status.

Please visit our fee status assessment page for information on how fee status is assessed.

The fee status assessment will remain in place for the course of your studies. Please refer to the UKCISA guidance for full information on limited circumstances in which students could be considered for home fees after starting their course.

If you meet one of the UKCISA categories, you will need to complete a fee status questionnaire, which can be found our fee status assessment page.

If you are on a full year abroad or industrial placement as part of your course you will be charged a reduced fee. Please refer to the university fee schedules.

You will only receive your invoice after you have successfully completed the Online Enrolment task on MySIS, depending on how you have told us you will be paying your fees. Please be advised it will be sent to you via email within a few working days of completing the task.

You will, however, receive an email shortly after completing your Online Enrolment with guidance on how to pay your fees and who to contact if you need support. Contact details will differ depending on the method you will be using to pay your fees so please refer to this email in the first instance. The subject line is 'Tuition Fees - Funding Option'.

If you would like to make a fee payment before mid-late August and your Admissions status is Unconditional Firm (UF) please visit MySis where the amount payable can be found in the My Finance section. 

If you have not received your invoice, please check your email junk folder. If you would like a copy of your invoice, please email fees@qmul.ac.uk along with your Student ID Number.

Your invoice will always quote your full tuition fees as shown on your offer letter. The invoice will not deduct any upfront payments or deposit payments.

You are not expected to pay the full invoice amount if you have already made a payment towards your fees. You are only expected to pay the balance after deducting your upfront payments.

An up-to-date statement of your account is shown under the MyFinance section of MySIS. This will show your current balance and amount to pay.

Example:

Total fee: £20,000

Deposit paid £2,000

(Invoice will show £20,000)

Amount to pay: £20,000 - £2000 =  £18,000

If you are paying in full before enrolment to take advantage of the 1% discount you must also deduct the 1% discount. The 1% discount is against the invoice amount. In the example above the 1% discount would be £200 therefore you would pay £18,000 - £200 = £17,800

You should receive an automated receipt by email. Below is a estimated timeline of when your email receipt will be sent depending on the payment method used:

Online payment: 1 working day

International payment: 4-7 working days

Bank transfer: 2-3 working days

If you have not received your receipt, please check your email junk folder.

Please email fees@qmul.ac.uk along with your Student ID Number and proof of payment if you have not received your receipt after the estimated time.

Students whose university fees are £10,000 or higher will receive a 1% discount if they pay their fees in full before enrolment. 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 fee' paying undergraduate students and Channel Islands or Isle of Man students, where the fees are regulated by the UK government.

You are strongly advised to deduct 1% from the full tuition fee and pay 99% rather than paying full fees with the view of applying for a refund. If you have already paid full tuition fees, you will need to submit a refund request via MySIS before January 31st for September starters and before 30th April for January starters. 

Some courses include compulsory field trips, the cost of which is additional to tuition fees. You will be notified of any additional fees with your offer of admission.

The university may increase future university fees for continuing students by an amount defined each academic year. The increase in university fees for unregulated university fees in 24/25 will be 3%. There are certain exceptions, such as for students returning from a period of interruption, students progressing from Year 0 to Year 1 in an undergraduate degree with an integrated foundation year and medical/dental students progressing from the non-clinical to clinical years of their programme.

When the inflationary increase is applied, fees are generally rounded up to the nearest £10 or £50.

Future fee increases for unregulated fee will not be more than 3%.

You will be charged a reduced fee if you are on a full year abroad or placement as part of your course. Please refer to the tuition fee schedules for current fee charges.

We have a wide range of opportunities with different eligibility criteria and application routes. Please refer to our Scholarships database.

It is possible that your department has not yet notified the Fees Office of your scholarship. Please email a copy of your scholarship confirmation letter to feesponsor@qmul.ac.uk and we will update your invoice.

If your fees will be paid by a sponsor, please email an official sponsorship letter to feesponsor@qmul.ac.uk

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)

If you are in receipt of an NHS bursary, please email a copy of your NHS bursary award letter to feesponsor@qmul.ac.uk along with your student ID number and we will invoice NHS directly.

The bank letter (correctly named Student Status Letter) can only be given to student who are fully enrolled. You will need to pay your fees before you are fully enrolled therefore you will need to find an alternative way to pay your fees other than via a UK bank account.

Payments can be transferred directly to Queen Mary University bank account or payment can be made by card online. Full payment details here

An unpaid fees flag is placed on the records of students with overdue fees. The outstanding fee might be tuition fees, a field trip, or other charges. You can view your fee account under the My Finances section on MySIS. If you need further information about this outstanding amount or believe that there is an error, please contact the Fees office.

You may also be flagged for unpaid fees if you are a sponsored student and we have not yet processed your sponsor letter.  If you believe this may be the case with your red flag, please contact feesponsor@qmul.ac.uk.

If you are a new student unable to pay your fees, you won’t fully enrol until you have paid your tuition fees or arranged an instalment plan.

If you are enrolled and unable to pay your fees by the deadline, please refer to Section 19: 'Failure to Pay' of the Tuition Fee Regulations.
