Special notes for EU students in light of Brexit

EU and international undergraduate student fee discount 

Reflecting the centrality of social justice to QMU’s ethos and the value we place upon diversity in the classroom, we aim to keep our courses affordable to international students.

In response to Brexit, we have discounted our full-time international fee to £7000 per year for a number of our undergraduate programmes. Please see undergraduate fees listings for the courses to which this discounted fee applies.

The discount for the above programmes applies to all full-time undergraduate EU and international students with international fee status. The discount will apply for the duration of the programme (up to a maximum of four years).

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

As a result of Brexit, higher education students from the EU starting their studies from academic year 2021-22 onwards 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). These students do not have ‘home’ fee status and they are 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 postgraduate fees listings 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.

Arrangements for students from the Republic of Ireland

Undergraduate students

As a result of Brexit, undergraduate students from the Republic of Ireland who commence their studies from 2021/22 onwards 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 who have commenced an honours programme from 2021/22 onwards are required to pay fees as set out in our undergraduate fees listings. A tuition fee loan of up to this amount is available from the Students Awards Agency Scotland for Republic of Ireland students.

Postgraduate students

Postgraduate students from the Republic of Ireland who have commenced their studies from 2021/22 onwards 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 postgraduate fees listings. Eligible students from the Republic of Ireland are also be able to access a tuition fee loan from Student Awards Agency Scotland.
