Best Summer Ever!

I had such a wonderful and memorable experience at Roehampton University! I made life long friendships and had an amazing time exploring London! I took the "Introduction to the London Stage" class, and I thoroughly enjoyed the theatre in London. All of the shows we went to see for class were interesting and expanded my knowledge of theatre. We saw 10 different shows as a class in the 3 weeks I was there.
There were many fun places to hang out with people I met, and the campus is just a short ride on the tube away from central London. There are plenty of places to shop there, plus there's cool markets to check out where I bought some really awesome souvenirs.
The Roehampton University campus is beautiful! I would highly recommend this program for your summer study abroad trip! 10/10

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I would like to change about this program is to make it longer than 3 weeks. It can go by too fast.

Summer School

Studying at Roehampton University was an absolute pleasure! The campus is beautiful with gorgeous lakes and lush green parks to enjoy time with friends. The staff and advisors were super friendly and very helpful throughout my time studying here. The rooms are decent but do get very warm in the summer. Overall, studying at Roehampton was great fun and I've made friends from around the world that will stay with me for a lifetime!

review of Roehampton international summer school

I really enjoy these three weeks at Roehampton University! On the arrival day, my flight arrived in London at 9:00 pm, and I have already passed the coach pick-up time. I told the Roehampton abroad team and asked them some information about how to get to the campus. Because it's my first time to Europe and my classmates all took different flights from mine, I'm alone. Luckily, Nat arranged a uber for me and I am really appreciated for that! He's very nice and patient! During these three weeks, he solved lots of problems for me! Thank you again for all the support on the campus! It's the first time that EdUHK sends students here, and I will recommend Roehampton to my friends in Hong Kong! Suggestions are that the doors in accommodation are too thin, sometimes I cannot sleep well~

Enjoyable experence

I was expecting to be quite stressed as I don't work well when it comes to traveling. However, it only took me a few days to settle in and get a good sense of the surroundings. I had a great time thanks in large part to the staff who were very helpful and supportive. In my class, I explored the literature of London in terms of Magic, Mystery, and Murder. My professor was excellent and made the subject very engaging and interesting. The class had a reasonable workload and offered several excursions to explore London. The social programs were great and well-organized and did a lot to let me explore a number of locations around London and get to know the other members of the program. The housing was nice and the provided kitchen supplies were extremely useful.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Go out more and try more of the restaurants around the area.

My Summer at Roehampton

I had so much fun this summer at Roehampton! The city is an hour tube away from the campus which was really good for the most part because you could get away from the bustle of the city. There was a small shopping area about ten minutes away from campus with a movie theater and several restaurants. The classes were fun and easy going. You can tell they are structured with the knowledge you will be traveling and doing other things besides class. I wasn’t that big a fan of my accommodations due to size and having to share a bathroom, but I have really good and private accommodations at home to compare them to. If I were to come back they wouldn’t factor into my decision because I didn’t stay inside very much. University of Roehampton was a great experience.

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I would want to improve about the program is the way the directions for assignments is explained. There wasn’t very much explanation at first about how to complete assignments until our professor heard us talking and realized we had completely misunderstood the directions. Making them more internationally friendly would be a good idea. If you’re traveling to study make sure you ask your professor to break down exactly what they want from the assignment because the rules are different in London vs USA but they sound the same.

A wonderful time at Roehampton

My time on this stunning campus has been incredible! My session really lucked out with beautiful weather all 3 weeks. I have made life long friends from all around the world and have been able to explore so many areas of the city. London, while very busy and very large, is one of my favorite places and I'm glad I got to come back and experience it for a longer time. It's easy to travel from London to other European cities, but if you stay around London there are hundreds of things for you to experience - parks, the tourist attractions, museums, pubs, theatres, markets, shopping, etc. Be aware that it does take quite a bit of time to get from campus into the city, but you'll quickly learn the tube lines and buses that get you where you want to go. The best study abroad experience I could want! Highly recommend!

What would you improve about this program?
The only improvements I would make are the structures of the modules (how much is class time, how much is excursion time) and the showers in the flats. Otherwise a wonderful program!

My Life Has Been CHANGED

My name is Nina Villano. I'm a 58 year-old African American, disabled student. When I tell you that coming to Roehampton to study abroad has changed my life, believe me. My journey here has been amazing. I am a Media Studies major and the information I learned from this country has been phenomenal. The study abroad program was more than I could've imagined. My classes were all trips to the many museums it has. I learned about media in every aspect and in every form.
The Professor was brilliant. It will be easy to tell that everyone involved in this study abroad program is passionate about what they do.
This has been an opportunity of a lifetime for me and it can be for yu too.
Roehampton has no problem with a disabled student. They have actually gone out of their way to make sure I felt safe and comfortable.
If you are considering studying abroad, I implore you to check out Roehampton University. It doesn't matter what your age creed or color is, Roehampton will welcome you with open arms.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
The most surprising thing I saw was an actual whip, lock, and bracelet used on slaves. This I wasn't prepared for and I became quite emotional. It was hard to see that this is how my people were treated.
