United Kingdom

background to Modern BritainIf you’re currently studying in the United Kingdom, you may be interested in progressing onto an undergraduate or postgraduate course at Royal Holloway, University of London.

We welcome many international students who are already living in the UK and work closely with schools and colleges, as well as individual applicants, to ensure you are supported through the application process.

The Regional Manager responsible for international applicants in the UK is Sarah Parker. Please do not hesitate to contact her at Sarah.Parker@royalholloway.ac.uk if you would like to any further information or require assistance in making an application.

As you are already in the UK, why not take the opportunity to come and visit our campus for yourself? Royal Holloway organises Open Days which include guided tours of our campus, visits to academic departments and useful talks on areas such as accommodation and finance. You will also mix with current and prospective students on the day, and have the chance to experience a taste of student life on our campus.

If you are unable to attend an Open Day, we can arrange guided tours of the campus, along with meetings with academic departments. For further information please email us at campus-tours@royalholloway.ac.uk.

Applicants to Royal Holloway come from a diverse range of backgrounds and we accept a broad range of qualifications to our courses. Each applicant is considered carefully on their individual merits, but please see below for the standard minimum entry requirements.

Masters Degree
