Hi Kamil,

Congratulations on receiving an offer! :clap2:

It's great to hear that you enjoyed the Open Day.

Keep an eye on your email as we'll start sending out Applicant Visit Day invitations in the next few weeks with all the details for the day. They're similar to an Open Day, but offer a strong focus on your academic department with departmental sessions that usually last half a day. You'll also have an opportunity to speak to members of our student support teams about studying abroad, disability and dyslexia support, finance and any admission queries you might have.

Hi alex20044,

Our on-campus internet doesn't have a download limit and you can expect speeds of up to 54Mb a second over Wi-Fi and 100Mps over wired internet. Please note that there is no difference between the wireless and wired connection, except if you're gaming or streaming HD, where you might want to use an Ethernet cable. All of our halls of residence rooms have plug-in points and we provide Wi-Fi coverage across the campus.

Have you had a chance to visit the campus yet?

That's great! Our Applicant Visit Days are a great opportunity to get to know your department, speak to current students and explore the campus.

I'm a graduate from Royal Holloway, so if you have any questions at all please just let me know.

Hi!

I got an offer from Royal Holloway and I wanted to know when I’d see my fee status? I got an email from UCAS track which extended the offer, but the separate Royal Holloway portal hasn’t updated with anything yet. So I wanted to know if a follow up email will be sent with details of my fee status etc present?

Hi carysellen_,

Congratulations on receiving an offer! :thumbsup:

We have over 140 clubs and societies on campus so there's definitely plenty to do. I'm a Drama and Theatre Studies graduate and was an active member of the Savoy Opera society and the Musical Theatre society throughout my time at Royal Holloway. There are plenty of performing arts societies in addition to these including Drama, Shakespeare, Improv and the Department of Drama,Theatre and Dance has its own society called The Student Workshop. The Students' Union hosts club nights every Wednesday and Friday and there are plenty of pubs on and off campus that hold function nights including pub quizzes.

Royal Holloway is only 40 minutes from London by train and students often head into the city for nights out, to hang out with friends or to see everything the city has to offer. In the local area, Windsor is only 20 minutes by bus and offers evening events as well as the opportunity to be a tourist during the day.

We have a breakdown of our accommodation options by price on our website here. It also includes information about the let type, room type, catering options and an approximate weekly price.

If you have any other questions, please let me know!

Hello!! My name is Fahima and I am applying for Medical Biochemistry at Royal Holloway and I am doing an access course to Biomedical Sciences. I am so scared if I have a disadvantage of not getting an offer because I am doing an Access course but I really admire Royal Holloway. I went to the open day really loved the vibe of the university and also the course structure for Medical Biochemistry is really suited for me. However, I have question if I do an access course will it be a disadvantage for me if i apply for Medical Biochemistry?

Hi Fahima,

We accept Access to Higher Education Diploma and all qualifications accepted are valued equally. For this course, we ask that you pass the Access to Science HE Diploma with at least 24 level 3 credits at Distinction, including all Biology and Chemistry units and the remaining level 3 credits at Merits. Please note that we are only able to accept the Access to Higher Education Diploma if you have had a considerable break from education.

I applied for English with Film Studies and recently got an offer. I am excited to be starting university as it feels like what i’ve been working towards for so long with GCSE and A levels.

I already attended an Open Day and I am currently considering whether to go to an Applicant Day

Hi Kushal Kulkarni,

All applications to our postgraduate courses can be made using our online application form. Our MSc Sustainability and Management course asks that applicants with Indian qualifications have a bachelor degree with 60% to 65% overall or a CGPA of 6.0 to 6.5 out of 10 overall depending on the institution. You may also need to provide an English language qualification if your undergraduate degree was not taught in English. You can find out more about this here.
