We often visit schools, colleges and education fairs in Saudi Arabia. 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic there are travel restrictions in place for a number of countries. In order to ensure that we continue to work towards slowing down the spread of the virus, we have temporarily suspended our travel. We understand that this is not ideal as we know that many of you value meeting Roehampton staff face to face. We are monitoring the situation and we intend to resume travel as soon as it is safe to do so.

Though we cannot travel, we have increased the number of digital Open Days, Online Taster Sessions and Webinars to ensure you can still find out more about studying at Roehampton. Our digital events have been extremely popular during this difficult time, please take a look at our event page where you will find a list of upcoming digital event.

Once we are able to resume travel safely we will be updating this page with new information so please do check back regularly.
