Book a one-to-one appointment
We are really keen to connect with students interested in studying with us. We offer 30 minute, one-to-one counselling sessions via Microsoft Teams. These chats are informal and do not affect admission - they're simply an opportunity for you to learn more about Royal Holloway and studying in the UK. We welcome any questions you might have about our application processes, study programmes, and campus life.
General Certificate of Secondary Education (Thanawiya)
If you achieved good results in your General Certificate of Secondary Education Exam (Thanawiya), then you will be considered for entry, but you will need to take our one year International Foundation Year or International Year One programme, or the equivalent from another institution, before beginning their undergraduate studies.
Students who have successfully completed one year of a Bachelor's degree in Jordan with good grades will be considered for direct entry to the first year of a Royal Holloway Bachelor's degree programme.
A levels & International Baccalaureate (IB)
If you have taken A levels or the IB, you will be considered for direct entry onto our undergraduate programmes. Specific grade requirements can be found in the course finder entry for your chosen course.
University preparation programmes
The Royal Holloway International Study Centre provides an International Foundation Year and International Year One programme, which are designed for international students who do not quite meet the requirements for an undergraduate course. These programmes will help to develop your academic and English language skills in preparation for university. Upon successful completion, you can progress to degree level study at Royal Holloway, University of London.
If you have completed a Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA at an accredited university you will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme and the university you have studied at, but most departments will ask for either a Lower Second Class Honours (2:2) or an Upper Second Class Honours (2:1).
Research Degree (MPhil/PhD)
If you have successfully completed a Master's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA and at a reputable university will be considered for entry onto a Royal Holloway MPhil/PhD programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme, but most departments will ask for a GPA of between 3.0 and 3.3/4.0 or equivalent.

The local Jordanian community
Royal Holloway is a multi-faith community, with many different beliefs represented on campus and excellent cooperation between faiths both on campus and in the local community.
The numerous on-campus faith groups include the RHUL Islamic Society (ISoc), who arrange five daily Muslim prayers and classes. ISoc also maintain the College's Prayer Room, which offers prayer and ablution facilities for men and women. We also have Middle Eastern and North African MENA Society who put on events such as MENA movie nights, shisha nights, cuisine nights, Dabake sessions, game nights as well as annual MENA ball.
There are several food outlets on campus with Halal provision; simply look for the letter ‘H’ next to meat meals in The Hub, Crosslands, Founder’s Dining Hall, KW’s and The Store on Campus.
Royal Holloway has close links with the Islamic Welfare Association of West Surrey, which was formed in 1986, to serve the Muslim community in and around Royal Holloway University of London.
