  • Welcome to the University of Roehampton

    Study Abroad Programme

    We are delighted that you are considering studying abroad at Roehampton. The information below provides you with everything you need to know about the Roehampton study abroad student experience. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

  • Academic offering

    The University of Roehampton is delighted to offer a wide variety of modules to students on the Study Abroad Programme. You can choose your modules by going to the Study Abroad Module Catalogue. You can take modules that relate to your major, minor or general education, as long as you meet any pre- or co-requisites.

    If you are coming in the fall, you should choose modules that end in an A (Autumn).

    If you are coming in the spring, you should choose modules that end in an S (Spring).

    Modules can be selected up to a maximum of 60 credits per semester or 120 credits per academic year. 10 UK credits are considered to be equivalent to 3 US credits/5 ECTS. 20 UK credits are considered to be equivalent to 4 or 5 US credits/10 ECTS.

    Updated module (course) information for 2014/15 will be uploaded to the University of Roehampton website programme pages by mid-April 2014.

    You must seek approval for specific courses from your home institution before commencing studies at the university. It is your responsibility to ensure your home institution will accept credit gained from taking each course. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further information.

    Unless otherwise stated, all modules will be taken alongside full degree students at Roehampton, to ensure you have plenty of opportunities to meet local students and fully integrate into campus and university life.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

  • Accommodation

    We aim to guarantee accommodation in one of our halls of residence for all study abroad students, provided you apply in good time. Rooms are single occupancy study bedrooms with shared kitchen facilities, internet connection and optional private bathrooms. There are plenty of cafes and diners on campus if you’re not sure of your culinary skills.

    The goal of the University is to provide a living/learning environment which promotes academic and personal growth and a sense of community among students.

    The Study Abroad team will apply for accommodation on your behalf. If you are to be invoiced directly for your accommodation costs, you will also need to apply via our online system. Further details will be sent to you nearer the time.

  • Social Programme

    In order to help you immerse yourself in London and the UK during your time with us, we organise the Study Abroad Social Programme. The programme is updated every semester and full details will be sent to you in the pre-departure information we send to you once you have been accepted on to the Study Abroad Programme.

    In Spring 2014, students took part in trips to Greenwich, Hampton Court Palace, a weekend trip to York and the North of England, Cambridge plus a walking tour and theatre performance in London.
