The University of Roehampton is delighted to offer a wide variety of modules to students on the Study Abroad Programme.
Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor
Roehampton is one of the newest universities in the UK, having been established in 2004. At the same time, through our four Colleges which have come together to found the University, we have a proud and distinguished history dating back to the 1840s, particularly in the field of Childhood Studies and Education. Our Colleges were also among the first colleges of higher education in the country to admit women. That tradition of commitment to equality continues to be part of the University's Vision and to the ethos of Roehampton, which has one of the most diverse communities of students in the UK.
Today the University has a broad range of expertise across the arts and humanities, social sciences and the human and life sciences, at the same time as maintaining its historic strength in education. Studying these subjects at Roehampton means that students acquire the essential skills they need to develop successful careers in a complex and fast changing world. In an era of globalisation, studying in a community that consists of over 110 different nationalities prepares them to do business with people from around the world. And because our students are taught directly by academics with national and international reputations for their research, they learn in an environment that is rich in creativity and new ideas.
Roehampton is a small, friendly, collegiate community where students can live, learn and socialise together on a beautiful and historic campus in southwest London. We offer a range of excellent facilities as well as easy access to the world-class museums, libraries and galleries of one of the most exciting and successful cities in the world.

Chapman students will be placed in En-suite rooms in Roehampton’s on-campus housing. Each room is a furnished, single bedroom and bathroom with shared common areas with local, international, and other U.S. study abroad students. Accommodation is self-catered with shared kitchen facilities available in each flat/area. If a student selects to upgrade to a “Deluxe” or “Premium” room, the student will be billed an upgrade fee.
Chapman University maintains a record of the courses that previous Study Abroad students have taken, and the equivalent Chapman credit that was granted for each course.
