Bursaries and Scholarships
- Listed below is the financial support Royal Holloway will be offering to students in 2013–14 and support measures designed to widen access to university education.
- 358 National Scholarships In 2013–14, as part of the National Scholarship Programme (NSP) for students from low income backgrounds, we will match the £537,000 allocated to Royal Holloway by the government for the award of National Scholarships. We will provide 358 national scholarships in total, each valued at £3,000, taken as tuition fee discounts and other benefits for the first year of undergraduate study. In subsequent years continuing students in receipt of full living cost grant and having a SLC verified family income of less than £25,000 will be eligible for a Royal Holloway bursary of £2,500. The Royal Holloway National Scholarships will be awarded to the 358 eligible students who achieve the highest three grades at GCE A2-level or equivalent in those subject elements of their academic qualifications which are specified in their RHUL UCAS offer as requirements for admission for their programme of undergraduate study at RHUL. AS and GCSE results will be used to differentiate between eligible entrants with similar A2-level results where necessary. In order to be eligible for the national scholarship programme students must meet the following national criteria: a) Student Loan Company (SLC) verified residual family income of under £25,000, b) English Domicile, c) Full time student studying an undergraduate degree.
- Royal Holloway Bursaries We will also provide financial support for students with a Student Loan Company (SLC) verified residual family income of between £25,001 and £30,000 per year with a non-competitive award valued at £1,000 per year, and those with a Student Loan Company (SLC) verified residual family income of between £30,001 and £42,600 per year with a non-competitive award valued at £750 per year.

Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees
The table below lists the annual tuition fees that were charged to new students entering the first year of an undergraduate degree or a one-year taught postgraduate course, most recently for those entering in September/October 2013. Note that these are tuition fees only for the full academic year and do not include accommodation, living costs or travel costs, etc. The fees information for this university is an extract from the Reddin Fees Survey – a survey of UK university tuition fees. See the full table listing all universities participating in the survey.
Fees for UK nationals with UK residence (home students) and EU nationals with EU residence (EU students) are the same, whereas fees for other overseas students are typically differentiated by course, usually in two bands: one for arts/classroom based courses and the other, typically higher, for science/laboratory based courses (fees for medicine and dentistry are generally much higher). Universities in Scotland and Northern Ireland may charge a different fee for RUK (rest of the UK) students.
Postgraduate course fees do not necessarily fit neatly in fee bands and further enquiry should be made to a university (or its website) for the exact fees for a particular course.
|Year||UK and EU Students||Overseas – Classroom||Overseas – Laboratory|
|* PGEU £3390 MA, £6368 MSc; PGOS £11555 MA, £12785 MSc|
