Fees and scholarships

At Queen Mary we want to encourage the best qualified students into subject areas which have been identified as essential to UK economic growth, and which are highly sought after by employers. 

Tuition fees

Undergraduate degree students are charged tuition fees each year by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The rate you will be charged depends on whether you are assessed as a Home/EU or an Overseas student.  Home/EU students will not have to pay your fees while studying – the government will lend eligible students the money, which you will have to start paying back once you have left university and are earning at least £21,000.

Visit the QMUL website for more information on undergraduate fees and funding.

Help and advice

Anyone who has applied to QMUL can contact our Advice and Counseling Service for specialist financial and welfare advice. Hear from our students in the video below on how best to manage your finances at university.
