Applicants will have been offered a place at Royal Holloway for a particular undergraduate or postgraduate degree. Applications for the Pre-sessional English Language Programme are sent to Royal Holloway International.
All applicants are required to use the Pre-sessional Application Form:
Pre-sessional application form (pdf)
Pre-sessional application form (Word)
Students must not pay the tuition fee until they have received a pre-sessional offer letter and, if they have any other academic conditions to meet, they must meet these conditions before paying.
Students are not normally admitted to the Pre-sessional unless they already hold an internationally-recognised English Language qualification at a level which indicates they are likely to be successful on the programme. For the 8-week programme, this means students are not normally admitted unless their English language qualification is only 0.5 or 1.0 band below the level specified in the prospectus for their academic programme. For the 4-week programme, it means that students normally need an English language qualification which is only 0.5 below the level specified in the prospectus or your academic programme offer letter.
After you have firmly accepted the offer for your degree programme/diploma, you will be invited to apply for accommodation and can then apply online for accommodation in the university halls of residence. Please refer to the accommodation webpages for further information .
