Queen Mary Bursaries

QMUL offers income assessed bursaries to help students with the costs of studying. You do not need to repay this money. Bursaries are paid in each academic year. They are administered by the Bursaries, Grants and Scholarships Office at QMUL (for any queries contact the Student Enquiry Centre, Ground floor, Queens’ Building, Mile End campus or email bursaries@qmul.ac.uk).

Please note that all international students and those EU nationals who are only eligible for a tuition fee loan will not be eligible for a QMUL bursary.

Medicine and Dentistry students are eligible for the QMUL Bursary when in years where tuition fees are funded by a student loan or yourself; students in NHS funded years are not eligible for the QMUL bursary. 

The amount of bursary you are eligible for in 2018/19 also depends on your course start date:

Course start date in 2015:

If your gross household income is £25,000 or less you will get a bursary of £1571 for the year.

If your household income is between £25,001 and £42,600 you will get a bursary of £1256 for the year.

Course start date in 2012, 2013 or 2014:

If your gross household income is £25,000 or less you will get a bursary of £1500 for the year.

If your household income is between £25,001 and £42,600 you will get a bursary of £1200 for the year.

Course start date before 2012:

Please contact a Welfare Adviser in the Advice and Counselling Service for more information.

How do I apply?

When you apply for Student Finance, your household income information will be passed to QMUL by Student Finance England, unless you ask them not to. QMUL will then be able to assess your eligibility for a Bursary without you needing to make a separate application.

How is the bursary paid?

If you are eligible for a bursary, the Bursaries, Grants and Scholarships Office will email you to let you know in semester 1. The bursary will be paid into your bank account in two equal instalments, in February and May.

Will my bursary affect my means tested welfare benefits?

No. You will need to get a letter from the Bursaries, Grants and Scholarships Office to state that your Bursary is for course related costs. You need to show this letter to each of the offices that pay your welfare benefits. Your bursary should then be disregarded in the assessment of your means tested welfare benefits.

Other Bursaries, Scholarships and Prizes

There are a number of university-wide and department-based awards and prizes. Some are awarded automatically when your application to study at QMUL is being considered, others require you to make an application, and others are awarded at the end of an academic year by the heads of academic schools in recognition of academic ability.
