This information is for students on courses starting on or after 12 January 2015. For each main intake we organise a welcome and orientation programme for new international students arriving at the University of Roehampton to help you make friends, settle in and feel at home before your classes start. We realise that arriving in a new country and meeting new people can be confusing and stressful, as well as exciting, and our aim is to ensure that you have a positive experience both in and out of the classroom. Our international orientation activities will provide you with the best structure to help you settle in fast before your studies begin. It is also fun and engaging as well!
Orientation covers a multitude of activities and it is important that you participate in the programme full in order to prepare you for your studies and living at Roehampton.
New international students (International Foundation, Pre-masters and PG Business degrees) can view the details and a programme of events by downloading the International Arrival Guide - January 2015.
Study Abroad and Exchange students can view a full details and programme of events by downloading the Study Abroad and Exchange Orientation Programme.
