Applicant Visit Days


What is an Applicant Visit Day (AVD)?

These specially tailored days have been designed to give you (applicants and your guests) an in-depth feel for what it's really like to study your chosen course at Royal Holloway. The day will feature department specific activities, the opportunity to take a tour of campus, see our accommodation and listen to a talk on student life. See below for more information on the days:

When do they take place?

If you've applied and received an offer to study at Royal Holloway, your invitation will include a selection of dates which you can book from December until March. We offer a variety of Saturday dates to ensure that everyone (applicants and their guests) can attend regardless of your school/college timetable or work commitments.



Department activities

Every department is different and every applicant will have a unique experience of their chosen course, whether they are applying to a single or joint honours course. Each department will take a varied approach to showcasing both their teaching methods and facilities. Activities often include, but are not limited to:

  • an introductory talk

  • a sample lecture, seminar or laboratory experiment

  • a tour or hands-on experience of the department's facilities

  • a one-to-one or wider discussion with academics from the department

  • the opportunity to speak with current students about their experiences.
