Royal Holloway is a truly multicultural institution. Our students from Brunei study a range of subjects from Information Security to Politics & International Relations and Management.
The qualifications we accept
Applicants to Royal Holloway come from a diverse range of backgrounds and we accept a broad range of qualifications to our courses. Each applicant is considered carefully on their individual merits, but please see below for the standard minimum entry requirements for students from Brunei.
A-Levels & International Baccalaureate (IB)
The requirements for A-Levels or the IB Diploma taken in Brunei are the same as for those taken in the UK and these can be found in our course finder. International students who do not meet the direct entry requirements for undergraduate study may take the International Foundation Year, run by our Study Group. It is a programme of academic and English language study skills before you start your degree.
Students who have successfully completed a Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades at a reputable university will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme but departments will usually ask for either a lower (2:2) or upper (2:1) second class Bachelor (Honours) degree, or an upper second class (2:1) or First class (1st) Bachelor (Ordinary) degree.
Royal Holloway in Brunei
We hold occasional events that bring together new students from all over South East Asia. The last one gave 30 students and potential students a chance to meet and network, discussing life at Royal Holloway, finding future housemates, sharing experience and making friends.
