Royal Holloway, University of London

Royal Holloway was founded by two social reformers who pioneered the ideal of education and knowledge for all who could benefit. Their vision lives on today. We are one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities, home to some of the world’s foremost authorities in the sciences, arts, business, economics and laws and attracts students and staff from all over the world.

We currently have about 2,200 postgraduate students, out of a total student population of about 10,500. Our students benefit from a broad education, being taught and working alongside dedicated researchers and practitioners within our 25 academic departments.

As well as the campus in Egham, we have a thriving central London campus which offers a range of taught postgraduate courses.

Our beautiful Egham campus combines history with all the modern facilities you’d expect at a successful university. At the heart is the Grade I-listed Founder’s building, which is built around two quadrangles and includes a beautiful gilded Chapel and Picture Gallery. Our flagship library and student services centre, named in honour of Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, opened in 2017 while the Shilling Building is the newest addition to our campus, containing state-of-the-art teaching spaces, labs and lecture halls.

Our London campus is located in Bloomsbury, with a dedicated suite in the University of London’s headquarters, Senate House, as well as a historic base at 11 Bedford Square.
