London is calling. Are you ready to explore this hub of culture, fashion, music, and politics? The streets and markets are buzzing, the pubs are jolly, and the museums are packed with art and artifacts. As a student embarking on the London Semester, you’ll study at the top-ranked University of Roehampton, giving you A-plus academics. Roehampton is in a beautiful neighborhood in London, so you can easily visit iconic places like Big Ben, Parliament, and the famous Buckingham Palace. Another bonus: everything on campus is within walking distance, so you can zip from class to your dorm to the student union. This serene campus gives you a break from the bustle of the city—that is, until you’re ready to tackle it again.
Here are some things to expect while on this unique program:
- Vast array of courses in many fields to support your major
- Wide selection of sports teams and student activities
- Trips to Big Ben, Parliament, Oxford Street, the London Eye, and more
- Large international student population
- Walkable, serene campus near public transportation
- Supportive on-site staff to help you transition to life in London
A hotspot for art, fashion, film, history, music, theater, and nightlife, London is an experience in itself. Explore the many diverse markets across the city, including the punk-rock-inspired Camden market and colorful Portobello Road. Visit the Globe Theatre to see some of Shakespeare’s most famous works performed live. Many of London’s museums are free and house some of the most renowned works of art and artifacts. Cruise down the River Thames or find a rooftop with a sweeping view of the spectacular city below. As the saying goes, coined by famous author Samuel Johnson, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.”
The London Underground makes navigating this big city easy. Also called "the Tube," it's the oldest underground railway in the world. Combined with London’s train and bus systems, the entire city is well connected and accessible. Walking is also a great way to see the sights. You'll glimpse contrasts between beautiful Victorian architecture situated next to some of the most modern buildings in the world. Stroll to one of the nearby well-preserved parks to enjoy green surroundings in the midst of a bustling city.
Feel like taking a weekend trip to the Beatles’ hometown of Liverpool? Or checking out a Manchester United football match? Or taking a quick jaunt to a traditional seaside town? Thanks to England’s rail system, the whole country is easily accessible by train. And if you want to travel farther afield, London's international rail and air links make European excursions both easy and affordable!
