A-Levels & International Baccalaureate (IB)
Students who have taken A levels or the IB will be considered for direct entry onto our undergraduate programmes.

Specific grade requirements can be found in course finder for your chosen course.
Students who have successfully completed a 4 year Bachelor's (Bacharel or Licenciado) degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA and at a reputable university will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme. Most departments will require the equivalent of an average of between 6.5/10 and 7.5/10, but exact requirements will depend upon the programme.
