Applicants to Royal Holloway come from a diverse range of backgrounds and we accept a broad range of qualifications to our courses. Each applicant is considered carefully on their individual merits, but please see below for the standard minimum entry requirements for students from Nigeria.
West Africa Secondary School Certificate (WASSC)
If you have completed the West Africa Secondary School Certificate in Nigeria you will need to take our one year International Foundation Year, or the equivalent from another institution, before beginning your undergraduate studies.

A levels & International Baccalaureate (IB)
If you have taken A levels or the IB, you will be considered for direct entry onto our undergraduate programmes. Specific grade requirements can be found in the course finder entry for your chosen course.
University preparation programmes
The Royal Holloway International Study Centre provides an International Foundation Year programme, which is designed for international students who do not quite meet the requirements for an undergraduate course. This programme will help to develop your academic and English language skills in preparation for university. Upon successful completion, you can progress to degree level study at Royal Holloway, University of London.
If you have successfully completed a Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA at an accredited university, then you will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme.
Exact requirements will depend upon the programme and the university you have studied at, but most departments will ask for either a upper or lower second class degree or a GPA of between 2.5/5.0 and 3.5/5.0.
If you have successfully completed a 2-year Masters degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA at an accredited university, you will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway MPhil/PhD programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme.
English Language requirements
To apply to any of our courses, you need to prove a minimum level of English language proficiency.
For postgraduate degrees, if you have completed your bachelors degree in Nigeria you automatically meet our English language requirement.
Students who do not quite make the English language requirements may be able to take a pre-sessional English language programme.
