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.


If you are eligible for a refund as per the University Fee Regulations, you may submit a refund request via MySIS under the ‘My Finance’ section. 

Tuition Fee Deposits

In response to COVID-19, we have introduced additional flexibility to support postgraduate applicants applying to Queen Mary University of London in the 2021/22 academic year.  Please see our Refund policy for deposit payments 2021-22 [PDF 554KB] and Refund Policy for deposit payment 2022-23 [PDF 278KB] for more information.

Payment plans

If your fees are more than £1,000 per year, you can pay in instalments.

If you are a postgraduate student in receipt of the postgraduate or doctorial loan, you will need to provide the Fees Office with a copy of your Postgraduate Loan Summary letter.

If you are an international or postgraduate student, there is a £50 non-refundable charge for paying in instalments. This charge does not apply to home fee paying undergraduate students.

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



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 and MBBS Malta. 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.

Students must deduct the 1% prompt payment discount when they make payment. The deadline for claiming a refund is the 31st January each academic year for student starting in September and the 30th April for student starting in January
