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.
