Modern Languages & International Business Students

Modern Languages Students

Modern Languages students must spend a year abroad on a compulsory work or study placement as part of the degree programme. As well as the many other benefits to studying abroad, your year abroad gives you an exciting opportunity to develop your language skills and to gain an insider's perspective on a new culture.

If you are on a four-year degree, you will spend your third year abroad, while fast-track students spend the second year abroad. Your Year Abroad Tutor will work with you to find a suitable host university and you must then follow the internal departmental application procedures. Along with your Programme Convenor, we are here to provide support during this process.

If you are going to study at one of our European partner institutions, you may be eligible to apply for an Erasmus+ grant to support you whilst abroad.


International Business Students

International Business students must spend a semester abroad in year two on a compulsory study placement as part of the degree.

You should apply through Roehampton Abroad to the partner institution of your choice; please note that despite this semester abroad being compulsory, your application is evaluated in the same way as students applying for an optional semester abroad.

The University of Roehampton has a number of partnerships set up specifically for International Business students, in Brazil, China, France, Spain and the Netherlands. Find out more here.
