PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS 

• Vibrant and diverse, London is the perfect study abroad destination! Take in a show, explore a world-class museum, spend an evening in the local pub, explore one of the many green spaces, try curries and other cuisines from around the world, or just enjoy a good book and a cup of tea! 

• Take advantage of Roehampton’s unique London Studies program! The immersive classes take students out of the classroom and into the city, using one of the world's greatest capitals as the backdrop for learning. 

• Enjoy all that London offers while enjoying campus life at Roehampton! The traditional, park-like campus offers exceptional, community-focused residential life, and the Roehampton Student Union organizes events and activities on campus and throughout London each week. 

• Take a break from the hustle of London in Richmond Park, London’s largest park and green space, which is just a few steps from the Roehampton campus, or explore nearby Richmond, a riverside community featured in Ted Lasso! 

LIFE ABROAD 

Study in southwest London at the park-like campus of the University of Roehampton! A wide variety of academic options are available in addition to the popular London Studies program. The campus is dedicated to cultivating a supportive learning environment and close-knit campus community, and past ISEP students rank the Roehampton team among the best staff of ISEP’s programs! Join one of Roehampton’s four colleges—they each offer support services and social activities, and they compete against each other each year for the college cup.  

LIVE 

Live right on campus and walk to all your classes. You’ll have your own room and share a kitchen and bathroom with local and international UR students. Each residence includes on-site Flat Representatives to help with any issues, 24/7 security, and internet access. 

DINE 

Cook with friends in your residence hall, grab something on campus, or enjoy one of the many nearby neighborhood restaurants. The Hive Café, an ethical and environmentally friendly coffee shop, is a popular place to meet up with friends right on campus. Each of Roehampton’s four colleges offers its own dining option, and South London is brimming with street food, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, and more. Seeking traditional fare? Be sure to try Fish and Chips, Pie and Mash, Cornish pasties, or a Full English! Grocery stores, including Tesco and the Roehampton Supermarket, are within 1-2 miles of campus. Plan to spend about 200-300 GBP a month for groceries and meals out. 

EXPERIENCE 

Wander through art and history exhibits at the nearby South London museums, including the Victoria and Albert, or cheer for the local team at one of the many sporting venues in South London. If you are looking for a night out, join the Roehampton Student Union on organized nights (transportation provided!) Once you arrive, you can also purchase an optional cultural programming and excursion package available for study abroad students. On campus, it’s easy to get involved! Yoga classes, roller skating, film screenings, gardening, game nights, swing dance, writer’s nights, and religious fellowship are all part of the weekly schedule. Roehampton also has excellent facilities for esports and gaming, and an active esports society that competes nationally. 

EXPLORE 

Living in London means there’s always something new to do or see, but it’s also easy to travel throughout the British Isles and Europe. Low-cost airlines make it affordable and fast to fly to popular destinations like Barcelona, Rome, and Prague. Trains and buses keep the rest of England, Scotland, and Wales accessible too. Spend a weekend hiking in the Cotswolds or relaxing seaside in Brighton! 

THRIVE 

UR provides a welcoming environment for under-represented student groups. On campus, you’ll find gender neutral toilets, disability services, and resources for mature (non-traditional) students. Counseling and therapy services are available on campus, and an NHS medical center provides health services as well. Roehampton has designated non-alcoholic spaces and quiet residences if you are seeking a peaceful and academically focused environment. Fitness facilities, team sports, and group exercise options are also available. 

London Studies Program 

Roehampton’s popular London Studies program offers credit-bearing coursework exploring the history, culture, and legacy of London. These courses are included for ISEP Direct students, ISEP Exchange students will pay an additional fee to the university directly. 

What We Love About Roehampton 

London is such a fun and vibrant city! It’s easy to imagine it as a traditional, historic British city, which it certainly is, but everywhere you go you hear a different language and witness an incredible mix of cultures, cuisines, and religions. Plus, the welcoming and supportive campus environment at Roehampton is perfect for anyone a bit nervous about going abroad!
