We have a number of exciting ways to find out more about Postgraduate study at Royal Holloway.
Our Postgraduate Open Evenings and campus tours give you the opportunity to visit campus, explore the facilities and chat with current staff and students. Details of forthcoming postgraduate events will be published here once confirmed.
If you would like to visit campus as part of a guided tour then please click on the campus tours button the side of this page. If you would prefer a self-led tour then please email and we would be happy to arrange this for you.
Our Postgraduate Online Events are a great way to get a taste of life at Royal Holloway without visiting the campus itself. You'll have the opportunity to chat with our academic staff and current students about the postgraduate taught courses that interest you, watch exclusive videos and experience a virtual 360 tour of our campus.
Postgraduate Open Evenings
We offer regular Open Evenings at both our Egham campus and our Royal Holloway London Graduate School. These events offer prospective postgraduate students the fantastic opportunity to speak with our expert academic staff about the courses on offer. At our Open evenings, you can also discover either our beautiful Egham campus or our ideally situated Royal Holloway London Graduate School and find out important information on subjects such as:
- entry requirements
- admissions processes and procedures
- accommodation options
- fees and funding
- career support
Our last Postgraduate Open Evening took place on Wednesday 25 May. Details on future events will be posted on this page when they become available.
Postgraduate Campus Tours
Visit our beautiful Egham campus to get a taste for life as a postgraduate student.
Your visit will begin with a campus tour given by a current postgraduate student, who will show you the key facilities on campus including the library, the Students’ Union and some of our dedicated postgraduate accommodation.
You will also have the opportunity to meet with our Postgraduate Student Recruitment Manager, either before or after your tour, and ask any questions you might have for a member of staff.
Please visit our dedicated campus tours page to learn more about our guided and self-led tours, and to view our frequently asked questions.
Conditional on their availability, we may be able to arrange to have a member of academic staff from your department of interest discuss the courses on offer with you, either during your visit or after. If you are interested in arranging a meeting with an academic member of staff then please email our Postgraduate Events Team.
Postgraduate Online Events

You'll be able to attend live sessions with academic staff and current students, and use our live chat to ask about the application process, accommodation, fees and funding, and more. With access to exclusive video content and a virtual 360 tour of our facilities, you can experience our campus from the comfort of your own home.
Details on future events will be posted on this page when they become available.
Our Postgraduate Webinars run throughout the year and are an ideal way to get a deeper understanding of academic study and student life in a more compressed time frame than at a Postgraduate Online Event.
We run two types of webinar:
i) General overviews of postgraduate study
ii) Subject-specific presentations, led by academic members of staff
Our last postgraduate webinar took place on Friday 6 May 2022 and we have no more planned for the immediate future. Details on future sessions will be posted on this page when they become available.
Subject Specific Webinars
Our last subject-specific webinar of this year took place in April. Please check our general postgraduate webinars or bookmark this page for updates on next year's events, which we expect to release in late summer.

Postgraduate event FAQs

Parking is free for all guests at the Open Evenings and Postgraduate visit afternoons. We will be in touch closer to the event to advise which parking has been allocated to you.

How do I get to Royal Holloway from the train station?
The nearest train station is Egham and Royal Holloway operates a shuttle system that runs from the station to campus most of the year. The main campus is around a 20 minute walk from Egham train station and it is also serviced by the number 8 and 441 local buses.

You don't need to print your ticket, simply turn up on the evening and we will look up your ticket by the name you booked with.
Do my guests need tickets?
No, you won't need to book separate tickets for your guests. Do bring along any friends or family who you would like to share the day with, but please note that in some of our busier talks we may have to implement a one guest per visitor system.
Where can I see the programme for an Open Evening?
Our programme for the Open Evening will be released before the event via email. It's a great idea to plan your visit and have a think about the talks you would like to attend, but don't worry as you do not have to book any sessions in advance (unless you would like to book a session with our Admissions Team to receive an 'on the spot' offer to study with us, available for selected courses).
How can I change my details on the Eventbrite booking system?
You can amend your booking by logging on to the Eventbrite website by clicking ‘Tickets’ from the drop-down menu under your name, select the ticket and then 'edit'. If you'd prefer, email PGEvents@royalholloway.ac.uk and we can do this for you.
