If you’re currently studying in the United Kingdom as an international student, you may be interested in progressing on to 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.
