A warm welcome to our deferred students coming to Royal Holloway this September 2017!
We hope you're looking forward to your arrival this September and have had an amazing year out. Whichever way you may have spent your gap year, we understand that the run up to starting your university adventure could be an anxious (yet exciting!) time.
So we asked some of our current students who deferred their place with us, and who were in your shoes just a few years ago, to share their gap year stories and provide some key tips and advice for you, on how to prepare for university.
Click on a student's profile to find out more about what they got up to during their gap year, how their experiences helped them, and how they felt in the run up to university life!
If you have any queries, you can chat to us on social media or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
