Where can I study?

We are very confident that wherever you end up studying, you will have the experience of a lifetime. However there are some things we recommend you consider when thinking about where and when to study abroad.

When considering where to study, you should think about:
  • What type of institution you wish to study at: large or small; urban or rural; English-speaking or not; traditional or modern; city or campus; close to home or further afield;
  • This should also largely be based on whether that institution is recommended for your programme of study and whether it offers enough modules in your subject area for you to complete one semester of full-time coursework. This doesn’t necessarily mean they have to offer your exact degree subject. For example, Criminology students could find relevant modules in Sociology, Criminal Justice, Law or Justice Studies programmes.
  • If you’re a joint honours student, you may not have to find a partner university that offers both of your subjects, as long as you can work out a plan with your Programme Conveners that will allow you to complete all of your requirements in both subjects.
  • Studying abroad can provide a valuable opportunity to learn a language or improve your language skills and you may consider studying at one of our non-English speaking partners.
However, you don’t have to speak another language to participate. Apart from all the options in English-speaking countries, many of our European and Latin American partners offer programmes in English.  You may also be able to take language classes in your host country, and if you participate in the Erasmus+ programme, you may be eligible for a free online course. Don't forget about Roehampton's Languages for All programme, which allows you to incorporate language modules into your study at Roehampton.
