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, however please see below for the standard minimum entry requirements for students from Sri Lanka.
A levels & International Baccalaureate (IB)
Students who have taken A levels or the IB Diploma will be considered for direct entry onto our undergraduate programmes. The requirements for A levels taken in Sri Lanka are the same as for those taken in the UK and these can be found in the course finder entry for your chosen course.
Our International Foundation Year, run by Study Group, is a programme of academic and English language study skills for international students who do not meet the direct entry requirements for undergraduate study.
Bachelor Special Degree
Students who have successfully completed a Bachelor Special 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. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme, but most departments will ask for either an Upper Second Class degree (2:1) or a Lower Second Class degree. Students who have completed a Bachelor General Degree and who have either an Upper Second Class (2:1) or First Class (1st) degree will also be considered.
CIMA Chartered Accountancy
Students who have successfully completed the CIMA Chartered Accountancy Diploma will also be considered for direct entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme.
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.
