Widening Access

Royal Holloway was founded on principles of social inclusion and being amongst the first places in Britain where women could enter higher education.

We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access higher education. We offer a contextual offer and financial support to students who meet certain Widening Access criteria.

We are also ramping up our work with schools and colleges by offering aspiration and attainment raising activities, resources and opportunities for students in Year 5 - Year 13.
