Alternatively, you can message Jonathan on our Unibuddy platform if you prefer a text conversation.

Egham campus

If you prefer to meet in person then please email and we'd be happy to arrange a time to meet on campus.

Our postgraduate recruitment manager regularly holds on-campus study surgeries, to answer your questions about postgraduate study. Work out which course is right for you, ask about the application process, funding, life as a student, or anything else that you’d like answering.

These sessions are held on the ground floor of the Emily Wilding Davison Building every second Wednesday, beginning 9 February. There is no need to book, but please do email ahead if you would like to check dates or ask any questions in advance.

Royal Holloway London Graduate School

Unfortunately we are unable to hold in person meetings at our Royal Holloway London Graduate School at present without prior notice. If you would like to meet us in central London then please email and we will aim to set this up for you.

 

Where can I park my car?

Egham campus

Parking is free for all guests at the Open Evenings and Postgraduate visit afternoons. We will be in touch closer to the event to advise which parking has been allocated to you.

Royal Holloway London Graduate School

Parking is limited in London, so we recommend using public transportation if possible. If you are driving then there is a number of car parks in the local area and we advise you carry out your own research into these prior to travelling.

How do I get to Royal Holloway from the train station?

Egham campus

The nearest train station is Egham and Royal Holloway operates a shuttle system that runs from the station to campus most of the year. The main campus is around a 20 minute walk from Egham train station and it is also serviced by the number 8 and 441 local buses.

Royal Holloway London Graduate School

Royal Holloway London Graduate School is located at 11 Bedford Square, Stewart House and Senate House. Nearby Underground stations include: Tottenham Court Road (Central and Northern lines), Goodge Street (Northern Line), Holborn (Central and Piccadilly lines), Russell Square (Piccadilly line), Euston Square (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines). It can also be access by numerous bus routes, we recommend using Transport for London’s journey planner for specific routes.

Do I need to print my ticket?

You don't need to print your ticket, simply turn up on the evening and we will look up your ticket by the name you booked with.

Do my guests need tickets?

No, you won't need to book separate tickets for your guests. Do bring along any friends or family who you would like to share the day with, but please note that in some of our busier talks we may have to implement a one guest per visitor system.

Where can I see the programme for an Open Evening?

Our programme for the Open Evening will be released before the event via email. It's a great idea to plan your visit and have a think about the talks you would like to attend, but don't worry as you do not have to book any sessions in advance (unless you would like to book a session with our Admissions Team to receive an 'on the spot' offer to study with us, available for selected courses).

How can I change my details on the Eventbrite booking system?

You can amend your booking by logging on to the Eventbrite website by clicking ‘Tickets’ from the drop-down menu under your name, select the ticket and then 'edit'. If you'd prefer, email PGEvents@royalholloway.ac.uk and we can do this for you.
