Hear from one of our students 


"I studied both narrative and prose and have always been involved in the theatre, so I wanted to pursue a Masters degree, just focused on Theatre. I wasn’t able to find anywhere like Royal Holloway. It was like magic, I was looking for a suitable Playwriting degree and the only webpage that came up with the wording MA Playwriting on a Google search, was Royal Holloway. As soon as I opened the link and saw the beautiful building, I went crazy, not only did I want to study at Royal Holloway, but it made me come to England and see it for myself. For us international students, the fees can be expensive, so having the deduction took a load off of my back."
