Fees and Living Costs

Queen's offers lower tuition fees and living expenses than many other similarly well-regarded UK universities.

Tuition

Study Abroad students receive a 10% discount on the tuition fee payable by international students on full degree programmes.

The Study Abroad tuition fee rates are as follows:

 

2013-14

(£ sterling)

2014-15

(£ sterling)

Full Year

£10140

£11000

Semester 1 (full semester or up to Christmas)

£5070

£5500

Semester 2

£5070

£5500

Single semester students are required to pay the full amount on arrival, before completing registration.  Full year students may pay in two instalments, at the beginning of each semester.

Financial Aid

The University does not offer scholarships to Study Abroad students.  However, Queen’s University is recognised by the US Department of Education as a participant in the Federal Direct Loan Program.  Under US Department of Education regulations, loans for Study Abroad students must continue to be processed by the home university, so you should contact the Financial Aid Office at your home university for further guidance. The Financial Aid Office at your home university will need to liaise with the Exchange and Study Abroad team at Queen's for confirmation of the costs of the Study Abroad programme (email studyabroad@qub.ac.uk).

Cost of Living

Northern Ireland is recognised by the British Council as having the lowest cost of living in the UK.  We estimate, as a guide, that you should allow approximately £7500 to cover your personal expenses for one academic year (in addition to tuition fees).

Rates for University accommodation can be found in the Stay at Queen's Accommodation website.
