This is the Period of Residence Abroad (PRA) in Spain or another Spanish-speaking country for all Single , Major and Joint Honours students. Depending on degree programme, all or part of the year may be spent in Spain or a Spanish-speaking country studying at a university, working as a language assistant, or in other approved employment. Students on other programmes (such as Multilingual Studies) may also opt to spend all or part of their PRA in Spain or a Spanish-speaking country. The year is assessed and counts towards the Royal Holloway degree by means of an oral examination the following autumn and the validation of foreign examination results or a report written by students working abroad on their PRA.
