How to Apply

Cost Of Attendance (CoA)

Students (or students and their parents) can only borrow up to the maximum CoA.

The CoA at Queen's is calculated using your tuition fees and estimated living costs for the duration of your programme.

Tuition fees can be reviewed here.

An allowance for dependants can be included if necessary. 

Once we have received your Institutional Student Information Report (ISIR) we will send you an internal application which includes a maximum of CoA. 

The estimated CoA is shown in GB Pounds Sterling (£) and converted to US Dollars ($) using a fixed rate taken at the beginning of the summer period.

This is a fixed rate for the entire academic year, and will not be adjusted should currency exchange rates fluctuate.

An example of a CoA for the 2018-19 academic year is shown below. 

The living costs included are estimates and your costs may be lower depending on your lifestyle.

The examples show the maximum amount that we can approve but you can opt to borrow a lower amount.

Please note: All students are treated equally and the CoA cannot be increased to support lifestyle decisions.
