Tuition Fee Instalment Plans

If you are self-funding and 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.

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

Arranging an instalment plan

(previously known as payment plan)

Step 1: Pay the first instalment

All Postgraduates, Overseas and Overseas EU undergraduate students must pay at least 50% of the self-funding portion of the tuition fee before arranging an instalment plan.

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

If you have an approved Postgraduate loan from Student Finance that covers all of the total tuition fees, you only need to complete steps 2, 3, and 4.

Please find all payment details on out How To Page page.

Step 2: Pay the £50/€60 Instalment Plan Admin charge

There is a non-refundable admin charge of £50/€60 for instalment plans. This charge does not apply to Home fee paying undergraduate students.

Pay the £50 admin charge online.

Step 3: Access the instalment plan portal

You will need to log into the instalment plan portal using your Queen Mary username. This will be in the format ab123456 and was emailed to you by Queen Mary IT services.
