A visit to our campus is a great chance for students to experience life on a UK university campus. The campus is just 5 miles (8 km) from Windsor Castle, 7 miles (11 km) from London Heathrow and 40 minutes to central London making a campus visit a great addition to your trip day schedule or a fun full-day activity.

We acknowledge the skills and independence developed by students completing the Extended Project Qualification and for many Royal Holloway Undergraduate courses, an EPQ will be taken into consideration and result in lower A-level grades being required for applicants. To watch and share our short video about the benefits of an EPQ, please click here.

Our EPQ visit days offer students the chance to learn research skills in an interactive session hosted by our librarians, as well as supervised use of our university library. Students can explore sources and supporting material for their projects while getting an insight into university level facilities. These visits are subject to the availability of our staff and facilities. 

To enquire about an EPQ visit please contact us - international@rhul.uk

School and group campus visits

We are hosting visitors on our  London campus. Should government guidelines or university policy change, we will review what we are able to offer.

Campus visits to our central London campus typically last 2 hours.  This is a great addition to a trip itinerary being just seconds away from the British Museum and a short walk to key tourist attractions like Oxford street and the west end.

Campus visits will vary depending on the size of the group visiting, and room availability, but a typical visit will include:

  • Introduction to Royal Holloway
  • A campus tour
  • Information session
  • A Q&A with our student ambassadors 

Example timetable

Specific timings can be adjusted to suit the groups' needs. Due to the size of the rooms, we will not be able to accommodate more than 30 students per visit. All timetables and visit requests are subject to staff and room availability.
