We have a number of exciting ways to find out more about Postgraduate study at Royal Holloway.
Join us at an Online Open Day or on-campus Visit Experience this summer to find out about your course and student life at our top 25 UK university.*
Throughout the pandemic, we have been working hard to adapt our event offering to provide Covid-19 secure opportunities in accordance with current Government guidelines.
We’ve designed our on-campus Postgraduate Visit Experiences to enable you to explore our beautiful campus whilst meeting some of our world-leading academics, staff from key services such as Careers and Wellbeing, and some of our current students.
Our Postgraduate Online Events are a great way to get a taste of life at Royal Holloway without visiting the campus itself. You'll have the opportunity to chat with our academic staff and current students about the postgraduate taught courses that interest you, watch exclusive videos and experience a virtual 360 tour of our campus. You can find out more about application processes, fees and funding, accommodation options and other facilities, with our professional services on hand to answer any questions you might have. Details of our upcoming online events will be published here once confirmed.

Postgraduate visit afternoons
We are not currently offering any Postgraduate Visit Afternoons, please instead look at our online events and Postgraduate Visit Experiences.
Come along to one of these events at our beautiful Egham campus to get a taste for life as a postgraduate student.
Your visit will begin with a campus tour given by a current postgraduate student, who will show you the key facilities on campus including the library, the Students’ Union and some of our dedicated postgraduate accommodation. You will then get a chance have your questions answered over a tea or coffee by a member of the admissions team and our Postgraduate Recruitment Manager.
Conditional on their availability, we will also invite a member of academic staff from your department of interest to discuss the courses on offer with you. Please note that you will need to have booked your place by the end of the working week preceding the event in order for us to arrange a meeting.
Postgraduate Online Events
Join us at our Postgraduate Online Events to get a virtual perspective of what it's like to study at Royal Holloway.
You'll be able to use our live chat to ask about the application process, accommodation, fees and funding, and more. With access to exclusive video content and a virtual 360 tour of our facilities, you can experience our campus from the comfort of your own home.
We currently have no upcoming Postgraduate Online Events planned. Please check back in the autumn.
Our Postgraduate Webinars run throughout the year and are an ideal way to get a deeper understanding of academic study and student life in a more compressed time frame than at a Postgraduate Online Event.
We'll begin with an overview of Royal Holloway, covering our academic departments, facilities, and the various funding options we have available. Our Admissions team will then discuss how to make an outstanding application, as well as outlining the steps you'll need to take between application and enrolment.
Our Careers Service will talk about the many ways they can support you in finding the right position when you graduate, and finally we'll hear from a current postgraduate student on how they made the transition into postgraduate study, as well as their experiences of the course.
Our next Postgraduate Webinar is due to take place from 3.00-4.00pm on Wednesday 9 June.
Reserve your place here.

Postgraduate event FAQs

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.

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?
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.
