Fees and Funding


Fee Status

The University’s Admissions team will assess your fee status and determine whether you are considered to be a Home student or an International student for tuition fee purposes. Please see the following links for further information and guidance:

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. Tuition fee rates for 2016/17 are now available. The Student Finance Office provide details of tuition fee payment methods for international students.

International Scholarships 2015 

Queen's University Belfast offers a range of scholarships for international students. 

Living Costs

The International Student Calculator website may help you to plan and manage your money for your studies in the UK, although please be aware that costs of living may vary slightly from region to region. 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 between £5500 and £7000 to cover your personal expenses for one year (in addition to tuition fees). 

Accommodation Costs

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

Part time work

Your student visa will allow you to work up to 20 hours per week during term time. Part time work can provide you with extra money for leisure activities but it should not interfere with your studies. Our Careers, Employability and Skills Unit offers part time temporary positions at the University, as well as advice on planning for your future career.
