Hey there.

I was looking at some of the courses at Royal Holloway and came across this page https://university.which.co.uk/royal...9-f36f9f0d7056

I noticed that the "Politics" tab shows a dropout rate of 10%, and when you click "French Studies", this jumps to 63%. What is the reason for this?

Hi there,

Our European and International Studies courses tend to have small cohorts of around 15 students with each specializing in one of four languages. In order to progress, students are required to meet our language requirements at the end of each year. If only a few students fail to meet this requirement it will reflect as a large percentage due to the small numbers on the course. While this is stated as a dropout rate, it may be that students do carry on with their studies with us, but undertaking a single honours course within the School of Politics and International Relations.

I hope this is helpful, but please let me know if you have any other questions.

Susana
