Spend a Summer in London!
The University of Roehampton is located a short walk from the River Themes and just minutes from the center of London. The International Summer School offers students the chance to study in the United Kingdom for either a three or six week period. An diverse array of courses are offered during each three week session.
Roehampton is a parkland campus university located in south west London within walking distance of the historic royal park of Richmond. In 1625 King Charles I brought his court to Richmond Palace to escape the plague in London and turned the area into a park for red and fallow deer. London is a large city comprised of many different neighborhoods with Westminster at the heart of the capital and it’s a only short bus, tube or train ride from Roehampton to all of London’s major landmarks.
- Summer I: Early June to Late June
- Summer II: Late June to Late July
Summer School students will be housed on campus. Rooms are single occupancy study bedrooms with Internet connection and shared kitchen facilities. Accommodation is self-catering (no meal plan); there are plenty of cafés and diners on campus and in the local area if you are not sure of your culinary skills!
Housing costs will be billed through Appalachian State.
