Undergraduate students from the UK and the EU
Students accepted onto this course are eligible to apply for tuition fee and maintenance loans from Student Finance England or other government bodies. Students who are applying for funding through Student Finance Wales are currently not eligible for tuition fee and maintenance loans.
Eligible students do not have to pay anything up front and the arrangements for repaying Tuition Fee and Maintenance loans are designed to make higher education as affordable as possible. Students will not have to start repaying loans until the April after they graduate and are earning at least £21,000 a year.
Tuition fee loan
Tuition fee loans do not involve means testing and students who take out a full loan do not pay any fees directly to ULIP.
Maintenance loans help students with their everyday living expenses while studying.
ULIP students are assessed on an overseas rate and entitlements vary according to parental income. As an example, new students from England currently receive a maintenance loan between £5,095 and £10,539 depending on circumstances. Please consult the relevant Student Finance websites for further details on the application process and for an estimate of your entitlements.
As part of our partnership with Queen Mary University of London, institutional communication with the Student Loans Company is handled by Queen Mary.

We offer bursaries to assist students from the UK with the cost of study. Bursaries do not need to be repaid and are paid by bank transfer in instalments. The amount received each year will depend on your household income which is assessed during your application for government financial support.
Two levels of bursaries are available:
- Students who come from households with an income of £20,000 or less per year are likely to be eligible for a bursary of £1,700 per academic year.
- Students who come from households with incomes of between £20,000 and £35,000 are likely to be eligible for a bursary of £1000 per academic year.
You do not need to make a separate application for a university bursary. When you apply for financial support from Student Finance, you will be asked to give your consent to your information being shared with the University. Sponsors/parents who are submitting financial details about themselves as part of your application will also be asked to give their consent. It is important that this consent is given so that we can decide whether your assessed household income means you qualify for a bursary. Please consult the QMUL Bursary page for further details.
