I so far have thoroughly enjoyed my program; it’s been engaging, fun and at times challenging. The teachers are incredibly easy to talk to and ask for advice which is oftentimes incredibly helpful. The only real criticism I would have regarding my program is the sheer volume of text one has to consume, but that’s to be expected given it’s an intense degree as well as the cost of living given it’s a London university. I do believe the nightlife at the university could be improved although it’s still a lot of fun if you meet the right people! I’d definitely recommend it to others as it’s a fantastic university with great lecturers but if you’re looking for busy nightlife, it’s not ideal. The school has numerous students from across the globe and seems very inclusive. I’m cautiously optimistic about my career prospects as I haven’t finished my degree (yet) but I believe things will work out well. My experience with Royal Holloway is of a great university in terms of academic studies, however, a poor nightlife. That being said, as a student, it is of course possible to create your own nightlife in many ways although it’s not as fun at times.View more
Being a top Russell group university, royal Holloway is both impressive in the stats and through looks. The gorgeous orange brick building was originally a women’s college and the feminist spirit is still present today. Every member of staff is approachable and dedicated and choosing this uni was the best choice I’ve ever made. I feel safe on campus with 24/7 CCTV and access to security as well as being proud to be part of the community. Rhul uses an online platform called Moodle to distribute resources, it’s a well organised, easy to use system that allows access to all recoded lectures, slides and quizzes. I study clinical psychology and would highly recommend it to anyone! The course is well structured and engaging.View more
I overall had a great learning experience when studying at RHUL. I found the lecturers to all be very passionate about their subjects which could, in turn, be seen through how innovatively they delivered their lectures. As well as this, personal tutors and course convenors were always happy to answer any queries or provide additional support whether that be academic or not. My only grievance would be that at times, the department which I worked under could be slightly unorganised, however, never to the detriment of their students. I therefore thoroughly enjoyed my time studying there overall!View more
Liked the classes and teachers. Student life was good. Very international uni. I think the professors were really supportive and went the extra mile to ensure we understood the content. The department staff were also great as well.View more
I think the size of the campus was great because it was not too big. Therefore, I got used to familiar faces. Getting to my lectures and seminars was not a long walk at all. My lecturers were very supportive and responsive especially when the pandemic came about. When we had lockdown in England having access to the library was really beneficial for my upcoming exams. Also having safety measures in the library such as private pods and separate tables made me feel safe while I was studying for my final year.View more
The teaching quality this uni has provided has been incredible. The close relationships I have formed with tutors as a result of small classes has massively helped with my degree. The tutors always have had time for me and made sure I felt confident in my ability for learning.
The amount of content covered as well has surpassed expectations and I feel I have learnt about a wide range of things that I would be able to take into different workplaces.
Overall the university is quite good. The lecturers are extremely helpful and down to earth which allows for their teaching to be clear and enjoyable. However, there are some small issues that at times can significantly affect students. For example, unlike many universities, Royal Holloway does not provide a plagiarism checker when students submit work. While I appreciate that this is to encourage good practice I think some students get paranoid when it is not available for them even if they have not committed an offence. As well as this, the school is not particularly forgiving when it came to some international students who went home for Christmas and were anxious to come back due to the increasing number of cases. Finally, another issue that affects a lot of students is the difference in opinion of markers. There are times were two students do similar things in their work but are provided with different feedback and this can be misleading at times. It would be appreciated if there was a way for work to be marked by a secondary person before being released to students.View more

Most universities are money grabbing monopolies that don’t actually care about your education, but Royal holloway made this blatantly obvious by continuously letting me down any and everytime I needed them.View more
