What happens next

Once you've accepted your offer there are a few more steps you need to take before enrolling and starting your course.

Research your fees and apply for funding

Under our fees and funding section you’ll find out the fees charged on each course and given details on government loans, bursaries and scholarships that you can apply for.

If you’re a UK undergraduate student applying for a tuition fee and/or maintenance loan, make your application as soon as possible after applying to Royal Holloway.

Apply for accommodation

The accommodation application system opens in spring. You apply for accommodation using the online application form. Further information can be found on the accommodation pages.

You should make note of the accommodation application deadlines. If you're starting in September 2017, you can check the deadline dates page from spring 2017.

Due to the high demand for on-campus accommodation, you’re encouraged to make an early application.

Royal Holloway also operates HouseSearch, a service for students who would prefer to live in a private sector house.

International students: check if you need a CAS and visa

Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) information for international students

In order to apply for a Tier 4 Student visa you will need a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number. We will issue a CAS number once:     

  • You have accepted us as your Firm choice        
  • You have met all the conditions of your offer        
  • You have paid a £2,000 deposit.  

If you have applied for a pre-sessional programme, you can find advice on the CAS on our visa web pages.

Preparing for your student visa

If you are a non EU national you will require a Tier 4 student visa, please consult the information on the international student support web pages.   

Other useful information

You’ll also find pre-departure information for international students with advice on planning for study, travelling to the UK and our free airport collection service. 

There is also information about our orientation and welcome programme for new international students, which is designed to make your transition to the UK as smooth as possible.

Enrol before starting your course

In August, we launch our enrolment web pages, which provide further information on the online sign-up, enrolment process and how to make fee payments. 

They also give you useful arrival information and details on what you can expect during your first few weeks on campus.
