International Business Students


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

You should apply through Roehampton Abroad to the partner institution of your choice; please note that despite this semester abroad being mandatory, your application is evaluated in the same way as students applying for an optional semester abroad and you must still meet the 40% grade average minimum requirement in order to go abroad.

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


You can find out more about receiving funding for your semester abroad through the Turing scheme here. 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. Find out more here. See our costs page here, for more information on funding your period abroad.

If you have any questions about the compulsory components of your degree, please contact your programme convener, Margaret Adjaye If you have any questions about the semester abroad, please contact Gina Ralph or book an appointment with us during our drop in hours here.
