Financial Support

Queen Mary University of London has a vibrant international community. Our International staff form a key part of the University.  As the cost of immigrating to the UK increases, Queen Mary wishes to provide financial assistance to our international staff coming to and working in the UK.

To assist staff in paying for the UK immigration costs Queen Mary offers two schemes:

  • A visa reimbursement scheme for staff who have applied for Skilled Worker or Global Talent Visas to work at Queen Mary.
  • An interest free loan scheme to pay for the cost of other visa routes. 

Costs not covered by the scheme

Please note that these schemes set out the immigration costs that are covered by the University.  Costs that are not expressly covered by these schemes cannot be claimed under either relocation or through expenses.
