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 Kenya.
Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE)
If you have completed the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education you will need to take our one year International Foundation Programme, or the equivalent from another institution, before beginning your undergraduate studies.
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.
Our International Foundation Year, run by Study Group, is a programme of academic and English language study skills for international students who do not meet the direct entry requirements for undergraduate study.
Students who have successfully completed a Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA at an accredited university 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).
Students who have successfully completed a Master's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA at an accredited university will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway MPhil/PhD programme. Individual departments have their own entry requirements and prospective students are encouraged to contact their chosen department for more information.

The local Kenyan community
There is a growing African community at Royal Holloway. There are a range of societies and groups for Kenyan students, both on the campus and in the local area. First and foremost the Afro-Caribbean society supported by the Student's Union, alongside faith societies, such as our Christian Union.
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. For information about our College Chaplaincy and the numerous on-campus faith groups, please see our Faith Support pages.
