Pharmacy (Distance Learning Courses)
The tuition fee is based on the number of CATS points to be completed during 2016/17, and is determined by the student’s country of residence at the time of taking the course, as follows:
Resident in the UK, Republic of Ireland or other EU country
£33.50 per CATS point
Resident outside the EU
£56.50 per CATS point
Direct entry applicants will complete 60 CATS points during each stage. Their 2016/17 fee will be:-
Non EU £3,390
The fee to be paid by applicants who are awarded credit for previous Postgraduate qualifications via the Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) will be calculated according to the number of points to be completed in 2016/17.
International students will be required to fulfil certain financial arrangements to the satisfaction of the University before being able to complete their Registration as a student of the University.

If you have met all the course entry requirements and you have received an unconditional offer of a place to study on a one-year postgraduate taught course, you should note that international applicants are required to pay a deposit towards their tuition fees before a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) for visa/immigration purposes can be issued.
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 enclosed with your offer letter.
The arrangements for deposits for 2016 are as follows:-
Details regarding fees can be obtained from the Student Finance Office.
International applicants who are in receipt of a full tuition fee scholarship are not required to pay the mandatory tuition fee deposit (evidence of the scholarship must be provided to the Admissions and Access service).
Contact details - see Useful Contacts at Queen's.
For some courses students may be required to purchase specialist equipment or attend field courses and any costs involved will be additional to the tuition fees indicated in your admissions letter.
It is estimated that you will require approximately £8,500 to £9,500 (excluding tuition fees) to cover the cost of living expenses e.g. rent, heating, food etc for one calendar year. However, this sum of money does not take account of funds necessary to support any dependants who may accompany you whilst you are studying. The overall cost of attendance will vary depending on your lifestyle. Further information about the cost of living in Belfast can be found at http://go.qub.ac.uk/costoflivingtables
Note – please refer to the leaflet – Visas and the Points Based System – to check the minimum amount of money you are required to have in place when applying for your student visa – see Useful Contacts at Queen's.
