Pre-sessional English Language Programmes

We offer Pre-sessional English Language Programmes to international students with a conditional offer to study at Royal Holloway. These programmes offer intensive preparation in English language and study skills. You can choose to take a twelve, eight or four week programme depending on your current level of English and the entry requirements for your chosen degree.

If you take the four or eight week programme and successfully attend and complete a Pre-sessional English Language Programme, you’ll progress directly onto your chosen degree at Royal Holloway (subject to meeting UKVI minimum visa requirements).
