Scholarships and grants

At Royal Holloway, we wish to support those students affected by the change in EU fee status through the transition. For eligible EU students starting their course with us in September 2021, we will award a fee reduction scholarship which brings your fee into line with the fee paid by UK students. This will apply for the duration of your course. For eligible EU students starting their course with us in September 2022, we will award a fee reduction scholarship equivalent to 60% of the difference between the UK and international fee for your course. This will apply for the duration of your course.

To receive the fee reduction scholarship, you must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Be classified as overseas for fees purposes
  • Be an EU national on 1 September before the start of the course
  • Recipients of the EU fee reduction scholarship are eligible to hold a second Royal Holloway scholarship.
  • A decision on the level of fee for EU students starting their course with us in September 2023 has not yet been made.

Studying Physics at a UK university will give you a solid scientific grounding in the four cornerstones: condensed matter, quantum mechanics, electromagnetism and thermodynamics, the basics of the evolution of our universe from where to choose your area of expertise. Do you like Theoretical Physics, Relativity or Cosmology? Or you may prefer technologically-important areas such as Quantum Optics and Photonics, and Physical Methods in Biology and Medicine, and active research areas such as Galaxies and High Energy Astrophysics, and Nanostructures and Graphene Science. Whatever you choose, you will have plenty of hands-on opportunities, practical experiments and real-life research during your studies.
