Support for international advisors

Royal Holloway works in close partnership with those who advise international students on UK education both in the UK and overseas.  

Royal Holloway International offers a range of presentations, workshops and on-campus activities, specifically designed with the student and their choices in mind. They aim to try and give students a real flavour of UK university life.  Although they are initially focused at an international audience; if you do have a mix of UK and international students this can also be accommodated for. Below are examples of the types of activities we can offer, however any presentation or workshop titles are flexible - we are happy to tailor the themes and sessions to meet the demands of your individual institution if it will assist you in assisting your students.


School and college visits

We regularly visit schools and colleges in the UK and overseas and are happy to deliver presentations and workshops, which can help your students with their university choices. We try to make them interactive, and keep them up-to-date so they reflect how students currently access information about universities. 

 Recent presentations have included:

  • information overload? How to make your university choices wisely and the key questions you should be asking
  • different ways of making decisions – what can I find out from social media?
  • applying to UK universities and writing a personal statement
  • practical tips on preparing for UK degrees
  • student life: making the most of your time at university, while still getting good grades.

Meet a current Royal Holloway student...

... and hear from them what life at university is really like!  We realise that our students are the people who understand the most what it's like to make their university choices.  Therefore, where possible, we try to involve them in the presentations given above.

Customised inward visits and workshops

Royal Holloway's campus is set in 135 acres of woodland. It provides students with a perfect example of a campus university, just 19 miles outside of a large city.  What's more, it is well connected by public transport if you are visiting with a group - Egham is just seven miles from Heathrow Airport and around 40 minutes by train from Central London.

We regularly receive groups of interested students from schools and colleges we work with.  These can be tailored to your students’ interest and needs, and a visit to Royal Holloway’s campus really gives the students the best idea of UK university student life.  If you have a group interested in a certain subject area, we can also try to arrange talks, sample lectures or a tour around the specific facilities from one of our departments.  For a full list of Royal Holloway’s departments, please see our website.


Online activities

We realise you can’t always make it to our campus, and we can’t always make it to you – therefore, we’re trying to deliver more sessions online.  Check back soon for more information on our online presentations (webinars).  If you have any suggestions for a presentation which might help you, which could be delivered online - just let us know!
