Our summer school offers you the chance to continue your academic studies by taking courses relating to your major, minor or general education over a three or six week period.
Roehampton is a small, friendly, collegiate community where students can live, learn and socialise together on a beautiful and historic campus in south-west London. We offer a range of excellent facilities as well as easy access to the world-class museums, libraries and galleries of London. By embarking on this period of study you will experience British university life, make new friends and immerse yourself in London, one of the world’s most exciting and cosmopolitan cities.
Whatever your nationality, our Summer School aims to help you progress with your academic career whilst living in London. Download our Summer
