Application process

  • All students apply online through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

  • Students can apply to five institutions and UCAS sends their application to all of them.

  • Each university will consider their application and tell UCAS their decision who will then pass it on the student. This will often be complemented by an offer letter.

  • They can check the progress of their application using ‘Track’ and respond to their offer online.

  • If they apply to Royal Holloway they will be invited to a UCAS day between November and March. This will give them a chance to meet academics and tour the facilities.
