HISTORY OF QUEEN MARY UNIVERSITY
The East End is renowned for its resilience. Continually reinventing and reshaping itself in response to an ever-changing world, it’s a part of London that has been a constant scene of social, political and environmental change. By the 19th century, many workers in the capital called the East End home, and at its heart grew an institution committed to providing them with educational and cultural opportunities.
Today, Queen Mary University of London has evolved into an international hub of education and research excellence. We offer hundreds of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and also offer an inspiring environment in which to undertake a PhD.
We’ve formed partnerships with like-minded institutions both here in the UK and overseas. Students and staff from more than 160 nationalities are a part of our family and we continue to empower future generations with the skills and knowledge they need to make a difference. But we keep our commitment to our home in east London – and whether we are working with local schools, businesses, charities or community groups, we take pride in our philanthropic roots.
From the very beginning, our founders aimed:
…to create an institution in which, whether in Science, Art or Literature, any students may be able to follow up his education to the highest point by means of Technical and Trade Schools, Reading Rooms and Libraries…

Standard tuition fee rates
Full-time taught postgraduate degrees (including MA, MSc, MRes)
£8,200 for classroom-based subjects
£8,700 for lab-based subjects
Non-standard tuition fee rates
Some taught postgraduate programmes have non-standard rates. These include certain masters degrees in subjects such as Business and Management, Economics, Finance, Law, Medicine and Dentistry. Tuition fee rates for postgraduate certificate (PG Cert) and diploma (PG Dip) programmes are normally set at one-third and two-thirds respectively of the masters degree rate.
Continuing students on full-time and part-time courses
Students on a course lasting more than one year are charged fees each year. An inflationary uplift is applied to the fees charged in the second year and subsequent years of the programme. In 2017-18 fees for continuing students will reflect a 2.8% inflationary increase from 2016-17 fee rates. When the inflationary increase is applied, fees are generally rounded up to the nearest £10.
Variable mode programmes
Students on variable mode programmes are invoiced for the full programme fee at the start of the course, but have the option of entering into a payment plan to pay the fee over two years. There is an administrative charge of £50 for payment plans.
Some courses include compulsory field trips, the cost of which is additional to the tuition fees. You will be notified of any additional fee with your offer of admission.
