Royal Holloway, University of London is a pioneering university, steeped in history and culture, yet constantly evolving and adapting to the demands of modern higher education. We proudly hold a place in the Top-25 of all UK universities.
Student recruitment at Royal Holloway is crucial to the ongoing success and reputation of the university and the Schools Liaison team are at the forefront of introducing Royal Holloway to prospective students.
