Step 1

Accepting your offer

We simply just need to know if you intend to take up your place, even if you haven’t met the conditions of your offer yet.

To accept or decline an offer of a place, you should reply online following the links through the Postgraduate Applicant Portal. This should be completed as soon as possible, ideally within 14 days from receipt of your offer letter.

If you cannot accept your offer through the application portal, email International Admissions (intl.student@qub.ac.uk) with your Name and Application number.

If you have a conditional offer:

If your offer of a place is conditional upon the completion of a degree or other qualification (such as an English language examination), please remember to upload a scanned copy of your official examination results by logging on to the online application portal.

Step 2

Upgrade your status from conditional to unconditional offer holder

If you are a conditional offer holder, your place is still here for you.  Please upload scanned copies of your final transcript and degree award certificate, along with your English language qualification (if appropriate) to the My Applications section of the application portal.  Where applicable, confirmation of your qualifications must be officially translated into English.  This will enable us to process the required documentation in preparation for your enrolment and send you information details for your visa application.

Please submit your results even if you have not exactly met the condition(s) of your offer, as it may be possible to exercise some flexibility if places are available.

If you cannot upload documentation through the application portal, email these to International Admissions (intl.student@qub.ac.uk) with your Name and Application number.

Step 3

Pay your deposit

Self-funding international applicants undertaking taught postgraduate courses must pay a tuition fee deposit of £2,500 towards their tuition fees. This should be paid once you have accepted an unconditional offer.

Please note that if payment of a deposit is a formal condition of your offer in order to secure your place on a postgraduate course, payment will be required in order to uprate your offer to unconditional.

After you pay a deposit towards your fees, you will be issued with a receipt which you should present with your documents when you apply for your student entry visa to the UK.

This information will also be included in your CAS Statement – see leaflet ‘Studying at Queen’s: Study Visa Options’.

CAS details will not be issued earlier than six months before the start of your degree programme.

Step 6

Is English not your native language?

Students must be able to demonstrate their competence in English in order to benefit fully from their course of study or research. Non-EEA nationals must also satisfy the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) immigration requirements for English language before the University can issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) for visa purposes.

Please view the Coursefinder for details of the English Language requirements for entry to individual degree programmes.
