Information for students

What is the Pop-up university event?

This event will offer you the chance to experience life as a Royal Holloway student in our pop-up venue at the Royal Institution in London. You’ll hear from our current students and academics about life here, and get stuck in to two academic taster sessions of your choice. We will also provide information and guidance sessions on the process of applying to university, and the support you can expect to receive while you study with us.
