Overview

WHY MISSOURI LONDON?

The Missouri London Program is ideal for students who want to experience London without having to pay premium costs. Public transportation is easily accessible (though exploring London on foot is both essential and encouraged), so the city is always at your fingertips.

Student ambassadors and staff members from the Roehampton Abroad office offer airport pickup services for international students. Roehampton has a dedicated team to assist international students, and there are also other physical and mental wellness resources available on campus that will be discussed during your Roehampton orientation.

HOUSING

We aim to guarantee accommodation in one of our halls of residence for all study abroad students, provided you apply in good time. Rooms are single occupancy study bedrooms with shared kitchen facilities, shared bathrooms, and an internet connection. Roehampton strives to place one American student per flat, so that you will always be able to interact with locals and other international students. Every building has a canteen and a café, and there are plenty of other cafés and diners on campus if you’re not sure of your culinary skills. 

The goal of the University is to provide a living/learning environment which promotes academic and personal growth and a sense of community among students.

The Study Abroad team will apply for accommodation on your behalf. If you are to be invoiced directly for your accommodation costs, you will also need to apply via our online system. Further details will be sent to you nearer the time.

 

STUDENT LIFE

In order to help you immerse yourself in London and the UK during your time with us, we organize the Study Abroad Social Program. The program is updated every semester and full details will be sent to you in the pre-departure information we send to you once you have been accepted on to the Study Abroad Program.

In Spring 2015, students took part in trips to Greenwich, Hampton Court Palace, a weekend trip to York and the North of England, Cambridge plus a walking tour and theater performance in London.

"I became even more independent and really tried to take advantage of traveling. The Missouri London Program also has what they call a social program where they take you on trips by coach and train to amazing sites. I visited Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Bath, Tower of London, Hampton Court, and many other sites..." (continue reading)
