    I still haven't heard anything about my application yet for MSc Petroleum Geoscience. You said Sophie would contact me last week.

    Hi Jess,

    Can I just check, have you/are you applying before the 15th of Jan? By closing date...do you mean the 15th? Or is the the portfolio closing date?

    Laurel
    Hey laurel
    I have already applied and I meant the 15th as a closing date for the applications ! I'm just worried that because I only applied around a week ago it might affect any chances of me getting accepted

    Hi Luke,
    I emailed and spoke to Sophie last week and she was keeping an eye on your application. As far as I am aware, she is still waiting on the department to make a decision on your application.

    Hi Jess,
    No need to worry...I'll explain why now everyone who applies before the 15th gets equal consideration. Your application will be considered the same as someone who applied in October.
    Good luck,

    Hi,

    I recently made an application for Geology BSc.
    Today I received an earth science prospectus from RH and after reading about Environmental Geology am now in two halves about which course I want to study.
    I noticed that they both follow the same course structure for the first year, would there be any scope to change between courses before the start of the second year if I decided I wanted to change?

    Hi,
    I'm currently in my AS year studying: psychology, english literature, ICT and business studies. I really would like to go to royal holloway and study psychology. On the website the requirements are AAA. I have started revising for summer exams now to ensure I nail those exams. Incase I don't is there any other offer they may give me. E.g. AAB, or ABB.
    Any help would be much appreciated because I'm really anxious about my exams.

    Hi 3vo,
    To get the best answer on course structure/module choices I would suggest that you contact the department of earth science.
    The number is: 01784 443582
    Hopefully they will be able to help you decide which course you prefer

    Good Afternoon

    I received a conditional offer last week for Classics. I am currently on a gap year having taken my A-Levels last year (AAA). The condition was that I supply scans of my certificates to confirm the results that I said that I had. I emailed the scans to arts-admissions but have not had any reply. I presumed that whenever admissions received the scans that the offer would switch from conditional to unconditional.
    Regards

    Hi,
    It's great to hear how hard you are working Psychology is one of our most popular courses and it is also one of the hardest to get into because they want students that have AAA with a B at maths GCSE.
    They make decisions based on predicted grades - so it doesn't matter as much if you get AAB/ABB at AS if you are predicted AAA. You can still apply with AAB but please remember that you will be up against students with AAA so it would help to have something 'extra' on your personal statement eg some really great work experience in pyschology.
    Good luck for your exams! Try not to worry about them too much - it sounds like you have worked really hard.
    Get back in touch, if you have more questions. Also, when you know what you have achieved this year in your AS exams and I might be able to help some more Also going to an open day and meeting the psychology professors can't hurt!

    Hello.
    I recently recieved an offer of ABB from the English department of Royal Holloway to study the English course (Q300), for which I am very grateful and pleased! I have booked a visit day for the 22nd of this month, and I was wondering if there is any protocol or structure of the day that should be noted or indeed anything else that I should know. I'm not too sure about the layout of the day itself, and therefore and thusly here I am: if anyone could help me I would be very grateful.
    Thanks! Sarah.

    Hi Sarah

    Congrats on the offer!
    Ok, the layout of the day = Registration starts from 10am, at 11:10 there is a Student Life at Royal Holloway talk, at 11:40 there is a Graduate Employment and Careers talk. In the afternoon the department will take over and run talks/seminars. Campus tours are once an hour (the 1st one at 10am and the last one at 3pm)
    The day gives you a chance to meet your lecturers and find out more about module choices, societies and a chance to meet your potential class mates! You can of course have a look around the campus (which is beautiful!!!...if I do say so myself!) and a chance to see the accomodation.
    I would suggest that you just bring something to write on, incase you want to take any notes
    Is there anything else I can help you with?

    Do languages account for the same credit as other A-levels to universities, or does it depend on the language?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Can you expand on that a bit? Do you have language qualifications? or do you mean if you can speak a language fluently does that equal the same as an A Level?

    I dont actually have one but alot of my friends are taking one or more Languages at A-Level.

    Does their Language A-level account for same credit as a Science or maths A-level?

    All A-Levels are worth the same. But..it completely depends on what course you apply for. For example, if you did French and German for A-Level that would be very useful if you wanted to do a degree in languages. But if you wanted to apply for a science degree it might not be as useful as doing chemistry and biology.

    Hi laurel,
    I'm currently an offer holder for the Management and Marketing course and I'm thinking about making Royal Holloway my firm choice. I study 2 BTEC subsidiary Diploma's and 1 A- level. The conditions for my offer are Distinction,Distinction and a B at A-level, however I'm currently predicted Distinction, Merit and a B. Even though I'm working hard to achieve and meet with the requirements, I still just wanted to ask you that if there are any possibilities of me being accepted into this course with my predicted grades of Distinction, Merit and a B.

    I have additional qualifications of two AS- levels: C in Media and a B in graphics. Could these be considered if I miss the requirements by one grade??
    Thank you.

    Morning,

    Well done on getting an offer from us! It sounds like you are panicking a little bit? We have read your application and the admissions officers have seen potential in you and think you are on target to achieving the grades! If you don't meet the conditions of your offer we would have to assess that situation at the time it occurred...so I can't really say whether they would still take you if you didn't meet the requirements.
    Keep working hard and I'm sure you can meet the requirements!
    Laurel
