Diego Sosa Ortego MA Playwriting


"It was like magic, I was looking for a suitable Playwriting degree and the only web page that came up with that wording on a Google search was Royal Holloway. As soon as I opened the link and saw the beautiful building, I went crazy, not only did I want to study at Royal Holloway, but it made me want to come to England and see it for myself. For international students, the fees can be expensive, so having the deduction took a load off of my back."
