PLEASE NOTE: All students wishing to study a pre-sessional English course must ensure that they take a UKVI IELTS test.
Outside your course we organise trips to famous London attractions to help you get to know the city and spend some fun time together as a group.
Roehampton halls of residence on our beautiful parkland campus are close to University facilities and only a short ride from central London. As a Roehampton student you'll be able to live in halls of residence in rooms specially allocated for presessional students. Living on campus lets you be near your classes and the friends you'll meet on the programme. You'll also benefit from all of the University's facilities, including internet access in every room, laundry, gym and 24-hour security.
If you have already applied for an undergraduate or postgraduate programme you do not have to complete another application form for the Pre-Sessional English programme. Please simply email our international admissions team and inform us that you wish to be considered for the pre-sessional English programme. Admissions will then assess your eligibility for the programme and issue you with a formal offer.
You can pay online in our e-store.
