International tuition fees

Queen's offers lower tuition fees and living expenses than many other similarly well-regarded universities in the United Kingdom. The fees you will pay will vary depending on the course you choose and the level of study.

The tuition fees payable by international students are based on the student's first year of registration and are listed below for undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research students. Exceptions to the standard fees are listed separately.

In addition, the fee rate will depend on the following classifications:

Fee Rate 1 (FR1): Courses which are essentially classroom based
Fee Rate 2 (FR2): Courses with a substantial laboratory or workshop component
Fee Rate 3 (FR3): Pre-Clinical elements of medical courses
Fee Rate 4 (FR4): Clinical elements of medical courses
BDS Dentistry: Composite fee per annum over 5 years

Tuition Fee Payment Options

The options for paying tuition fees and charges for the academic year 2016-17 are summarised in the table below. Students must ensure they have made the necessary arrangements to pay their tuition fees and charges at enrolment and registration. These payment options are set out in more detail at the following link: Link to payment options.  

The overarching principle, regarding the payment of tuition fees, and other associated charges, is that the student remains liable for the payment.  If the student loan or sponsorship arrangements do not subsequently provide funding, the student will be required to pay all fees and charges personally.

Please note the 25% of Tuition Fees are Non-Refundable following enrolment

Students whose personal contribution is £250 or less will be required to pay in full on enrolment.

Options Notes

Direct Debit
  • Minimum of 25% payment at enrolment, followed by 3 further bi-monthly payments at the end of November, January and March.

Tuition Fee Liability for Student Withdrawals

Full-time Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Students

The date when a student withdraws will affect the level of tuition fees which may be refunded.  Adjustments to tuition fees are calculated with reference to the date of a student's withdrawal from the University, not the last date of attendance. The table below demonstrates how tuition fees are calculated in respect of a withdrawal;


Withdrawal Policy (effective from 1 August 2018)

Attendance/SLC Liability Point Normal Effective Date  Fees due to the University 
 Completion of Enrolment and Registration (non-refundable)*  September/October  25%
 Resumption of Autumn Semester following the Vacation Period January 2019  50%
 Resumption of Spring Semester following the Vacation Period March / April 2019  100%

*The non-refundable percentages of fees will increase at various points during the academic year.

Part-time Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Students
Fees for part-time students are calculated by semester.  Further details of the withdrawal and module drop policy, for part-time students, are outlined in Section 4.4.2 of the Student Finance Framework 2017-18.

Postgraduate Research Students
The tuition fee liability for a Postgraduate Research student withdrawal, or a temporary leave of absence, is based on the official date of withdrawal in the academic year, and a refund will be issued, if appropriate.  The tuition fee is calculated for a month if a student is deemed to be in attendance on, or after, the 5th of that month.

For further information, please refer to the Student Finance Framework 2017-18.
