What you will study

The programme consists of core and pathway-specific modules. The core modules will improve your academic and English language skills, while the pathway-specific ones will build specific knowledge about your chosen progression degree.

Progression degrees

Once you successfully complete the International Year One in Electronic Engineering, you can progress to the second year of your chosen undergraduate degree at Royal Holloway. This is providing you have met the required grades for progression. Keep in mind that grade requirements are subject to change – our teaching staff will talk to you about them towards the end of the programme year.
