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. If you need support or advice about financial issues, get in touch with Queen Mary's Advice and Counselling Service.


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.

If you receive Student Finance funding, you will still get an invoice, for information only.

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.

Payment plans

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

To arrange a payment plan, you must first pay the first instalment plus the £50 admin charge, then please email a request to fees-plan@qmul.ac.uk. Distance learning students must first pay the first instalment plus the £50 admin charge then email feesdl@qmul.ac.uk. 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 Student Finance Notification letter and arrange a payment plan by email at fees-plan@qmul.ac.uk, you must ensure you pay the £50 admin fee prior to sending the email.  

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/eu undergraduate students.


From 2019-20, there is a 1% discount for:

  • Self-funded Home/EU postgraduate students whose tuition fees are £10,000 or higher
  • International undergraduate and postgraduate students whose tuition fees are £10,000 or higher

This does not apply to Home or EU undergraduates. This only applies if you pay your fees in full before enrolment. You should deduct the 1% before you pay. If you have been awarded a scholarship, the 1% discount applies to the remainder of your tuition fee after the scholarship has been deducted.

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].

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.
