Managing your money whilst studying

Queen Mary's Advice and Counseling Service provides lots of useful information on managing your money.

We want to do everything we can to minimize any additional costs that may be incurred during your studies. Outlined below are the costs we are able to cover and the costs which our students will have to meet themselves (where applicable).

What costs do we cover?

  • Laboratory coats and safety spectacles for practical classes
  • Compulsory learning aids (e.g. Mastering Biology, EVS Clickers)
  • Printing of posters (when these are required as part of a module's assessment)
  • A wide range of course notes, data booklets, laboratory manuals etc.
  • Access to a range of general and scientific software via QM's Student PC Service
  • On-campus high-speed internet access (including WiFi)
  • Some software for installation on students' personal laptops (e.g. ChemDraw)
  • An initial free printing allocation (ca. 100 pages)

What costs may you still have to cover?

  • Textbooks for personal purchase - these can be quite expensive, but the Queen Mary library maintains multiple copies of all recommended texts
  • General printing/photocopying costs - printing facilities are widely available on-campus, and typically charged at 4p per A4 black-and-white page
