We welcome applications from international students whose qualifications match our entry requirements for courses. You can check Royal Holloway International’s your Country pages for more information.
English language qualifications
If English isn't your first language, you’ll be required to demonstrate your English language level through a recognised qualification.
If your language results are slightly below the required level, you may have the chance to attend a pre-sessional English language course - meaning you don't need to re-take any exams or tests.
If your secondary education took place in an English-speaking country, or in English (such as international A-Levels) you may not have to take an IELTS or equivalent test. Email Admissions for confirmation.
International Foundation Year
If you’re applying from a country in which you studied for 11 or 12 years, or you only hold AS levels or the IB certificate, you will usually have to complete a recognised international foundation year.
We offer our own International Foundation Year, delivered by Study Group, to prepare you for undergraduate study.
