For parents and supporters

Welcome to Royal Holloway’s parents' and supporters' Hub

The journey to higher education can be overwhelming for the prospective student as well as their family and supporters, particularly during these unprecedented times. With such an enormous amount of information available it can be a daunting prospect. In fact, an independent survey recently conducted on behalf of Royal Holloway, University of London has found that while the majority of parents (93%) want to be involved in helping their aspiring student select a university, less than half (48%) understand how to apply for a place.

With this in mind, please see our Top tips for parents/supporters who want to support their children in applying to university. You can also find out about our ongoing response to coronavirus (Covid-19) and flexible teaching and learning approach. If you are the parent of a current student, we have created an FAQ page to help you understand the current measures in place at Royal Holloway.

We hope that our top tips and downloadable guides will assist you but if you can’t find the answers to your questions, please call us on +44 (0)1784 414944 or email
