For 2021/22 entry we will be discounting our full-time international fee to £7000 per year for the following undergraduate programmes:

• BA (Hons) Business Management

The discount for the above programmes applies to all full-time undergraduate EU and international students with international fee status. It is being introduced both as an interim arrangement as EU students move to international fee status and to support undergraduate international students in their studies at QMU. The discount will apply for the duration of the programme (up to a maximum of four years).

This EU and international undergraduate fee discount introduced in 2021/22, which discounted our full-time international fee to £7000 per year for many of our courses has been embedded from 2022/23. Please see our 2022/23 fees page for the courses to which this fee applies.

There are separate arrangements for students from the Republic of Ireland (also set out on this page) and so they are not eligible for the discount above.

Transitional scholarship for EU postgraduate students: 2021/22 and 2022/23

The Scottish Government have confirmed that, as a result of Brexit, higher education students from the EU starting their studies from academic year 2021-22 will no longer have the costs of their tuition fees met by the Scottish Government (but see exclusion below for students from the Republic of Ireland). ‘Home fee’ status for these students will come to end, and they will be classified as international students for the purposes of tuition fees. As part of our management of the Brexit transition, for many of our courses, we have introduced an EU transitional scholarship for EU full-time postgraduate students commencing their studies on campus in academic years 2021/22 and 2022/23. This provides a 40% discount on international tuition fees. The scholarship is available to EU students for whom the international fee rate applies and covers the majority of our postgraduate programmes. See our fees page for confirmation of the courses to which this scholarship applies. This transitional scholarship is not applicable to students from the Republic of Ireland, who will continue to be eligible for the home fee rate.

We also have a number of Saltire Scholarships available to students from the EU and EEA joining us for a one-year full time postgraduate degree course in January 2022. The scholarship is worth £8000, and is granted as a reduction of the tuition fee.  Again, this scholarship is not applicable to students from the Republic of Ireland, who will continue to be eligible for the home fee rate. Please note that you cannot receive both a Saltire Scholarship and our EU Transition Scholarship.

Arrangements for students from the Republic of Ireland
The Scottish Government has confirmed that undergraduate students from the Republic of Ireland who commence their studies in 2021/22 will have the same fee status as students from the rest of the UK, excluding Scotland.

This means that full time students from the Republic of Ireland commencing in 2021/22 on an honours programme will be required to pay fees for the first three years of study (£9250 per annum). No fee will be charged in year four. A tuition fee loan of up to this amount will be available from the Students Awards Agency Scotland for Republic of Ireland students.

Postgraduate students from the Republic of Ireland who commence their studies from 2021/22 will have the same fee status as home/rest of UK students. Details of home/rest of UK fees for each postgraduate course is available on our 2021/22 postgraduate fees page. Eligible students from the Republic of Ireland will also be able to access a tuition fee loan from Student Awards Agency Scotland.
