Tuition fees for undergraduate students

The tuition fees that Royal Holloway charges will vary depending on whether you are classified as a UK/EU, international or Islands student. These charges are set out below:

Tuition fees for students from the UK and European Union

The tuition fee for Home and EU students in 2016-17 will be £9,000.

There is a different tuition fee for a year spent abroad or working in industry.

Tuition fees for international students outside the European Union

Tuition fees listed are for students starting their degree programme in the 2016-17 academic year. For joint or major/minor courses (for example BSc Economics and Mathematics or Physics with Psychology ) the fee charged will be for the major subject, i.e. Economics or Physics.

The fees advertised on this page are for study in one academic year. As fees for years two and three of an undergraduate programme are not set in advance, students should be aware there may be increases in the fees for subsequent years, in line with the rate of inflation. Royal Holloway's policy,however, is that any increases in fees will not exceed five per cent for continuing students.

*Year out: Eramus exchange students study at one of our partner institutions in Europe for a term or full year while non-Eramus exhange students study abroad at a university outside of Europe.

Some degrees give you the option to spend a year working in a company to gain experience.

A compulsory exchange is a year spent abroad as part of your degree (this year counts towards your degree) while a non-compulsory exhange is a year spent abroad that does not count towards your degree.

How to pay the tuition fee

You can pay your fee to Royal Holloway in a number of ways including student loans and paying them yourself. You can find out more about paying your fees here.

If you're able to pay your own tuition fees in one amount you may benefit from our early payment discount.

Will I pay the UK/EU or international fee?

The UK government sets guidelines on who is eligible to pay the UK/EU rate of fees. Guidance is produced by the UK Council for International Student Advice (UKCISA) on which students should qualify for the lower fee. 

Please note that holding a UK or EU passport does not automatically qualify you for the UK/EU rate of fees. You will also need to meet residency requirements.

When you apply to Royal Holloway a provisional decision is made on your fee status, based on the information you provide on your application form.  This status will be communicated to you if you are made an offer on your chosen course. You can check this using the Campus Connect status checker.

If you disagree with the College's assessment, you should complete a fee assessment questionnaire and submit it to the Admissions Office together with supporting documentation. 

A trained member of Admissions staff will then re-assess your fee status based on the information on the questionnaire.

A copy of the fee assessment form, and further information on the fee assessment procedure can be found in Admissions Policies and Procedures.

Please note that once you have enrolled , your fee status cannot be changed for the duration of your course. Any queries must be sorted out before you enrol.

Check out our frequently asked questions if you have any queries about your fee status.
