Hi, I hope it's not late but I'm thinking of applying to Royal Holloway. I did some research and I found it to be a university that offers the degrees and life I wanted.

I was wondering if I could have more information on Law with International Studies and a year in industry.

I was also wondering about career prospects after graduating.

Thank you!

Hi just_ranzel,

It's great to hear you are interested in studying with us.

Our School of Law and School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy have excellent reputations for research and teaching, and for engaging with policy makers in the legal professions and government, public bodies, journalists and other opinion forums.

The LLB Law with International Relations with a Year in Industry is for anyone who is looking to start a career in the law or in public affairs. You'll gain an extensive knowledge of the foundations and content of the law of England and Wales and learn about the latest developments in both law and global politics.

Graduates from our School of Law have gone on to enter into a range of professional careers including Solicitor/Barrister, Social Worker, Local Government Officer and Police, Prison and Probation Officers.

If you'd like to speak to a current Law student, I would recommend speaking to Alex on our website here. He'd be more than happy to answer any questions you might have about the School of Law.

Hi,

I have applied for an MSc in Clinical psychology at Royal Holloway. Everything I have read said I'll hear in 10 working days but it has now been longer than that? Shall I just wait as I know it's a busy time of year or get into contact with admissions??

Thanks,

Megan

Hi Megan,

Due to the large volume of applications we are receiving at the moment, the response time is slower than usual.

Have you had a chance to visit the campus?

Hi everyone,

Royal Holloway will be hosting an Online Open Day on Wednesday 12 December from 2-4pm (UK time) that you might be interested in attending. It's an opportunity to chat to current students and support staff as well as explore our campus through our new Virtual Experience.

You can book your place here and if you have any questions, I've set up a thread for this event here.

Hi katie091000,

The average response time is usually within 10 working days, but as we are receiving a large volume of applications it may take longer than usual.

Hi Happyaries01,

It's great to hear that you're interested in studying with us!

You would only be able to submit one personal statement to our admissions team. If the two subjects you are interested in are related to each other, you could write a personal statement that accommodates both subjects. For example, if you were interested in History and Politics it would be easy to blend both interests into one personal statement. However, this would be more difficult to do if the subjects you are interested in are very different. If this was the case, I would recommend researching the subjects you are interested in and either choose one of them or find another course that could accommodate both of your preferences. If you would like to speak to our admissions team, you can contact them at [email protected].

What subjects are you thinking about studying?

Hello. My daughter received an offer from RH today via UCAS Track, which she is delighted about. There is nothing on the RH applicant portal other than the status of her application as being received. Should she expect to see that site updated, or receive an email? Thank you.

Thank you for contacting us. I'm delighted your daughter is interested in studying here. I recently graduated from Royal Holloway and really enjoyed my time studying here.

Hi

i was planning on applying to Royal Holloway for psychology and when i went to the open day it seemed like a wonderful uni to attend.
However the only problem is that it is expensive to travel to from central London. i was wondering if there is an cost efficient way of getting there everyday without spending £300.00 on travel per month

Hi mishisweet,

It's great to hear that you enjoyed our recent Open Day! If you did have any more questions about studying Psychology, you can chat to current student, Lucy.

If you chose to commute to uni, you definitely won't be alone - lots of our students decide to live off campus or at home throughout their time at Royal Holloway. At the beginning of term we also hold a Commuter Welcome Talk, which gives you a chance to meet other students and find potential train buddies!

I know that travel can be expensive, but I'd definitely recommend looking into a 16-25 railcard which can save you around 30% discount on Standard Anytime, Off-Peak, Standard Advanced and First Class Advanced rail fares anywhere in the UK. Also, if your journey would require the tube, the 18+ Oyster Card can also save you a lot. I've heard from others that make the journey that it works out cheaper to buy a ticket each day rather than a season ticket, as you may find that you're not in everyday of the week/Christmas/Easter/Summer, so that's definitely something to keep in mind. Also if you are choosing to live at home, you'll be saving a lot of money on accommodation and your maintenance loan can help with the travel costs.

Hopefully one of our current commuter students can give you a better insight on costs, but I hope I have helped a bit

Best wishes,
Lara
