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.

Check Coursefinder pages for specific International fees for each course

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

    The Northern Ireland Department of Health introduced a mandatory clinical placement levy for all new international medical students commencing study at the University from 2019/20 onwards.  This charge is payable in each year of study to cover access to clinical placements in the Northern Ireland Health and Social Care system. 

    The University has taken the decision to pay to the Department of Health the full cost of this clinical placement levy for the first year of study (£10,000), on behalf of new international students entering Year 1 in the 2020-21 academic year. This cohort of students progressing to Year 2 in the academic year 2021-22, will be required to pay a reduced charge of £5,000, and the University will pay £5,000. The full cost of the new charge is likely to be applied from Year 3 onwards (i.e. academic year 2022-23), and students will be required to pay £10,000 in each year (Years 3, 4 and 5).

    *All fees are payable in £ sterling. Approximate equivalencies are shown at the following rates ( August 2019) US$ = £1.25

    All tuition fees (with the exception of FR3 and FR4 above (2020/21 only) are subject to a 2% annual inflationary uplift.

  • 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 2019)

    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 2020 (Date TBC)  50%
     Resumption of Spring Semester following the Vacation Period March / April 2020 (Date TBC)  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.

    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.
