Who is this Advice Guide for?

This Advice Guide is for home and EU students who are planning to study, or who are already studying, a postgraduate programme (taught or research) at Queen Mary University of London. It gives information about sources of funding that you may be eligible to apply for before the start of your programme, as well as possible funding options if you are in financial hardship during your programme.

This guide also explains what your academic options may be if your circumstances change during the course, for example if you need to take time out, as well as explaining the financial implications of such a change to your studies.

When you are planning your funding, you will need to know how much your expenses will be. You can use our useful budget planning resources, including a spreadsheet to help you calculate what your cost of living will be.

Graduate entry and second degree medical and dental students should read our advice guide Funding for Medical and Dental students.

International students should see the money section of the international webpages on the Advice and Counselling Service website for information about funding.

You can read and download all our advice guides from the Advice and Counselling Service website.


The information in this advice guide is for full-time home and EU postgraduate students and applicants. Shaded EU+ boxes like this one have important extra information for European Union students only. UK students can ignore the EU+ boxes.

Law, regulations and policies can change quickly.
