Find out when you can start your course

Plan ahead and check when your course will be starting – it is important to arrange your travel and accommodation ahead of time, based on your term start date.

Each of the programmes offered at Royal Holloway International Study Centre differ in length and start date. The date you start will determine how long you will have between when you finish your pathway programme and the beginning of your degree. It is important to note that if you are taking the English Language Preparation or English for Pre-Masters courses, you will arrive a term or two ahead of the programme dates.
