For parents and supporters

Welcome to Royal Holloway’s parents' and supporters' Hub

The journey to higher education can be overwhelming for the prospective student as well as their family and supporters. With such an enormous amount of information available it can be a daunting prospect. In fact, an independent survey recently conducted on behalf of Royal Holloway, University of London has found that while the majority of parents (93%) want to be involved in helping their aspiring student select a university, less than half (48%) understand how to apply for a place.

With this in mind, please see our Top tips for parents/supporters who want to support their children in applying to university.

In addition, we’re holding a webinar on Tuesday 28 April 2020 for those who are supporting someone who has, or is, thinking about applying to Royal Holloway. We know the current circumstances caused by the coronavirus (Covid-19) are unsettling and this webinar is an opportunity for us to share the most up to date information we have now, and answer any questions you might have.
