Payment of tuition fees

Invoices and payments

Queen Mary will send you an invoice in August, which will represent the charge for the full academic year you are enrolled on. If you choose to accept a place at Queen Mary it is your responsibility to ensure that your tuition fees are paid when they are due. You should therefore ensure that you have sufficient financial resources available in the UK to do so throughout your full programme of study. Fees due in any academic year are payable prior to, or at enrolment.

Temporary enrolment

Students who do not pay the required amount of fees or provide proof of sponsorship or a Tuition Fee Loan at enrolment will be given temporary enrolment. Temporary enrolment allows a student to attend lectures but not to borrow books from the library or receive financial support such as a Maintenance Grant or Loan from the Student Loans Company.

Please note - tuition fees are a student's responsibility. If a student is not paying the fees, it is still their responsibility to inform the Fees Office of their sponsor's details. If tuition fee payments are not made on time, the student will be classed as a Debtor and their registration with Queen Mary may be terminated.  See Failure to pay tuition fees

Discount for prompt payment

If you are paying international student fees and you pay your tuition fees in full on or before enrolment, you will be eligible for a 1% reduction on the tuition fees. If you have been awarded a scholarship by Queen Mary, the 1% reduction will apply only to the remaining balance of your tuition fees after your scholarship has been taken into account.

If you are a Home/EU postgraduate student paying tuition fees of over £7,500 in full on or before enrolment, you will be eligible for a 1% reduction on the tuition fees. If you have been awarded a scholarship or any other discount by Queen Mary, the 1% reduction will not apply.

Liability on interruption or withdrawal

If a student interrupts their study or withdraws from their degree programme, they are responsible for payment of part of or the full year's tuition fee. Please see the following document for detailed information:

These regulations are updated every year - you can access a list of archived and present Tuition Fee Regulations documents.

Late payment

Students are required to settle their fee account promptly. If a student is unable to pay they must consult the Head of Income and Credit Control at the earliest opportunity. Extensions of the time to pay will normally only be granted in exceptional circumstances. If a student fails to pay without having been granted an extension to the payment due date, the student is liable to have their registration terminated and to be excluded from attending classes and using College facilities.

Students who are unable to pay their tuition fees on time should immediately seek advice from the Advice and Counselling Service.

If you fail to pay the required amount of tuition fees by the due dates for payment your registration as a student of QMUL could be terminated in accordance with Ordinance C3. De-registration normally takes place in February. If you are de-registered, you will not be able to take any QMUL examinations in this academic year. If you are de-registered, it may be possible to be reinstated once the debt is cleared, however this is subject to an administrative charge (currently £250) and you will not be reinstated until at least 12 months after you have been de-registered.

If you are a debtor

your record in the Student Information System will be flagged as a debtor record.

Some of the consequences of this include:

  • You will not be able to obtain official confirmation of your assessment results, progression or awards
  • You will not be able to book a place at a graduation ceremony
  • Your details and information regarding your debts may be passed to a debt collection agency employed by QMUL
  • You will be prevented from re-enrolling with QMUL
  • You will not be able to obtain any formal documentation from QMUL
  • You will not be able to borrow books from QMUL libraries

Protocol on fees

Queen Mary University of London, in common with all other UK institutions of higher education, is bound by legislation and regulations which embody the Government's policy on fees both for Home and Overseas students, including the provision that Home and European Union undergraduate students should contribute to the cost of their education through the payment of tuition fees.
