Step 2 – Review Entry Requirements

After you have chosen a masters programme, read the Entry Requirements for your chosen programme to find out if you fulfil the minimum entry requirements, including English Language Requirements if relevant.

Step 3 Check Tuition Fees and Funding Opportunities

When making your application for masters study it is important that you consider the availability of finances to cover both the tuition fees and your living costs.  Check the tuition fees for your chosen masters programme here

If you are unsure as to your fee status please see the College’s international student pages here. Most international students will be charged the 'overseas' fee rate for their programmes. However there are some exceptions where non-UK students are liable to be classified as 'home' students for fee purposes.

Information on funding opportunities for masters students can be found here

Step 4 – Complete the Application Form

Applications are made direct to College using the College Application Form: Please ensure you use the postgraduate application form for non-Medicine/Dentistry students. The form is largely self-explanatory.

All applicants are asked to include a brief Statement of Interest (about 300 to 500 words) outlining the main academic areas covered in their first degree, how these might relate to the issues examined on their chosen MA/MSc programme, and their main reasons for choosing the masters programme at Queen Mary.

Candidates must include a full academic transcript (a record of courses taken and grades achieved) and two referees reports with their application. Failure to do so will result in a delay in the application being processed.

Applications may be submitted on-line, or to: The Admissions and Recruitment Office, Queen Mary, University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS, United Kingdom


Step 5 – Track Progress / Raise Any Further Questions
Please liaise with the relevant contact listed under the ‘Contact Us’ tab for your particular programme for any questions regarding your application.

The application process can take up to 4-8 weeks depending on the time of year. Please do ensure that your application form is as complete as possible to speed up the process
