If you’re an international student interested in a research degree, Royal Holloway International can give you extra English language support.
English language courses offered to current students aim to help you meet the challenges of writing up your thesis using the appropriate structure and academic style as well as making sure you don’t feel uncomfortable taking part in academic discussions with native speakers.
For example, in-sessional English language courses and one-to-one writing workshops cover essay-writing skills, how to deliver an effective presentation and discussion skills to aid your postgraduate studies.
