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 Pakistan.
Pakistani Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSC)
If you have completed your Pakistani Higher Secondary School Certificate in Pakistan you will need to take our one year International Foundation Year, or the equivalent from another institution, before beginning 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 4 year Bachelor's degree, or a combined Bachelor's degree and Master's degree for the duration of 4 years in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme you are applying for, and the university you have studied at, but most departments will ask for a GPA of between 2.8/4.0 to 3.5/4.0, or a final grade of between 58% to 68%.
