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 for students from Ghana.
West Africa Secondary School Certificate (WASSC)
Students who have completed their West Africa Secondary School Certificate in Ghana will need to take our one year International Foundation Programme, or the equivalent from another institution, before beginning their undergraduate studies.
A-level & International Baccalaureate (IB)
Students who have taken A levels or the IB Diploma will be considered for direct entry onto our undergraduate programmes. Specific grade requirements can be found in the course finder entry for your chosen course.
Students who have successfully completed a Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA at an accredited university will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme and the university you have studied at, but most departments will ask for either a Lower Second Class Honours (2:2) or an Upper Second Class Honours (2:1).
Students who have successfully completed a 2-year Master's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA at an accredited university will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway MPhil/PhD programme. Individual departments have their own entry requirements and prospective students are encouraged to contact their chosen department for more information.
Students will need to be able to prove that they have a minimum level of English language proficiency.
Students who do not quite make the English language requirements may be able to take a pre-sessional English language programme.
For undergraduate students, applications are made online via UCAS. Students applying for a University preparation course or a postgraduate course apply to Royal Holloway directly.
You can find further information on how to apply in the Study here section of the Royal Holloway website.

The scheme offers scholarships to Tullow Group scholarship applicants who are looking to pursue studies on either our MSc Petroleum Geoscience (Basin Evolution) or MSc Petroleum Geoscience (Tectonics) courses. More information can be found on the Tullow Group website.
