Paying your tuition fees

You must pay your tuition fees before you enrol for each academic year. Here's all the information you need to pay your fees. 


Before the start of your course we will send you an invoice for the full academic year. You must pay your fees or provide proof of sponsorship before enrolment. Otherwise, you will not be able to enrol.

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] for more information.

This policy applies to the 2021/22 academic year only and is in accordance with the University Fee Regulations.

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

If tuition fee payments are not made on time, your registration with Queen Mary may end. If this happens, you will not be able to attend classes or lectures, or take any exams. You may be reinstated once you have paid the outstanding fees but there is a charge and you will usually have to wait at least a year.

There is more information about being de-registered in this document: Ordinance C3: Termination of registration of a student in debt [PDF 8KB] and the University Fee Regulations below.

We encourage you to seek advice on financial issues, including not being able to pay your fees from Queen Mary's Advice and Counselling Service.

Sanction Countries

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 and Venezuela.

Students must NOT make payment originating from these countries without the University’s approval. This can be obtained by contacting Hardeep Gill h.k.gill@qmul.ac.uk.

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, h.k.gill@qmul.ac.uk for further information.
