สวัสดี! We have been welcoming Thai students for years, with more than 60 students from Thailand currently studying at Royal Holloway.
We regularly visit Thailand to meet students interested in applying for Royal Holloway, as well as visiting schools and attending events and exhibitions.
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 Thailand.
Upper Secondary School Certificate (Mathayom VI or Maw 6)
If you have completed the Upper Secondary School Certificate in Thailand you will need to take our one year International Foundation Year or International Year One 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. For specific required grades, find your course today.
If you have finished the first year of a Bachelor's degree in Thailand, and your grades are good, then you may be considered for direct entry to the first year of a Bachelor's degree programme.
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 a Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject, and you have good grades/GPA, then you will be considered for entry to a Master's degree at Royal Holloway. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme, but departments will usually ask for a minimum GPA of either 2.8 or 3.2/4.0.
Research Degree (MPhil/PhD)
If you have a Masters degree in an appropriate subject, with good grades/GPA, you will be considered for entry to a research degree at Royal Holloway. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme you are applying for and the university you have graduated from, but most departments ask for a minimum GPA of at least 2.8-3.0/4.0.
