The qualifications we accept
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 Singapore.
If you have successfully completed a 3-year Diploma at a Polytechnic in Singapore with a minimum average grade of C, you will be considered for direct entry to a Royal Holloway undergraduate programme. If you have a minimum grade of B you may also be considered for direct entry to the second year of a degree programme, but this is decided case by case.
A levels & International Baccalaureate (IB)
If you have taken A levels or the IB Diploma 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, and you have achieved good grades/GPA, then you will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway Master's degree programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme you are planning to study at Royal Holloway, but most departments will ask for either an Upper Second Class or Lower Second Class degree or a final grade of between 50-60 per cent.
Research Degree (MPhil/PhD)
If you have a Masters degree in an appropriate subject with good grades/GPA, then you will be considered for entry to a Royal Holloway MPhil/PhD programme. Exact requirements will depend upon the programme you are planning to study at Royal Holloway, but most will usually require a minimum final grade of 60 per cent.
