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.
Our next event is from 3pm-4pm on the 24 November. This webinar will be most relevant to current Royal Holloway students and previous alumni who are considering further study, though all are welcome to attend.
We'll begin with a quick overview of Royal Holloway, covering our academic departments, facilities, and the various funding options we have available, as well as discussing postgraduate study more generally. Our Admissions team will then discuss how to make an outstanding application, as well as outlining the steps you'll need to take between application and enrolment.
Our Careers Service will talk about the many ways they can support you in finding the right position when you graduate, and we'll hear from the Student Ambassador Scheme about paid opportunities they have available on campus. Finally, a current postgraduate student will provide their insight on how they made the transition into postgraduate study, as well as their experiences of their course.
At the end of the session we'll have time for your questions.

More webinars will be available throughout the year and will be posted here when bookings go live.

Postgraduate event FAQs
Where can I park my car?
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.
Central London campus
Parking is limited in London, so we recommend using public transportation if possible. If you are driving then there is a number of car parks in the local area and we advise you carry out your own research into these prior to travelling.
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.

The central London campus is located at 11 Bedford Square. Nearby Underground stations include: Tottenham Court Road (Central and Northern lines), Goodge Street (Northern Line), Holborn (Central and Piccadilly lines), Russell Square (Piccadilly line), Euston Square (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines).

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.
