Money Matters

Students sitting in the Quad

Many students and their parents see the financial side of further education as a daunting subject. Queen’s is committed to attracting the best students, from wherever they are in the world and whatever their circumstances.

The University offers competitive tuition fees and living expenses are lower than those at many similarly regarded UK universities. View information about tuition fees for 2013/14.

Tuition fees are a commitment but they should not be a burden and, if required, there are various avenues of support available. They can be paid in full but there are also funding arrangements which allow students to study now and pay later, when they are working and earning more than £15,000 a year.

Full-time students from the UK and EU can apply for a loan to cover their fees, as well as a maintenance loan to cover living costs. Your son or daughter should contact the appropriate education authority - in Northern Ireland this is your local education and library board  – for the application forms.

In addition, the NI education boards provide maintenance grants to Northern Ireland full-time students from lower-income households. Queen’s also offers bursaries to ensure that students from all backgrounds can afford to make the most of their time at the university.

Full details of these opportunities can be found on the University website and in the Undergraduate Prospectus. There are also details of arrangements for international students, as well as information for students with a disability.

Entrance scholarships
