British education, global opportunities
Royal Holloway is situated on a beautiful campus location just 40 minutes from London, giving international students the benefits of out-of-town living while they study for an internationally recognised University of London degree. Study Group works with Royal Holloway, using our unique global reach to attract students from all over the world. We run the International Study Centre (ISC) on behalf of the college, helping international students attain the academic, English language and study skills they need to progress to their chosen degree.
The ISC provides academic tuition and language support for international students who do not yet reach the requirements for entry to a Royal Holloway undergraduate degree. At the ISC, students will be introduced to the style of teaching that they will continue with when they progress onto their degree. Students will experience small group and individual tutorials, seminar-style classes and larger group lectures whilst studying one of the following pathways:
- Arts, Media, Film and Music
- Social Sciences
The ISC staff work closely with students to choose their degree programme, advising on academic requirements, career opportunities and suitable subjects to achieve their goals.
The International Study Centre also offers an English Language Preparation course for students whose English language level just falls below the entry requirement for the International Foundation Year.
