London and University of Roehampton

University of Roehampton 

Webster's international partnership in London, England is with University of Roehampton. Roehampton sits on 54 acres of beautiful parkland in southwest London and is one of the city's only full-campus institutions. Roehampton is considered the most research-intensive modern university in the UK, with 66 percent of its research judged either world leading or internationally excellent. Roehampton is the collection of four colleges, each founded between 1841 and 1892. The colleges unified in 1975 as the Roehampton Institute of Higher Education in order to address the need to educate poor and disadvantaged children, and in 2004 officially became Roehampton University. Students who study at University of Roehampton have a wide variety of courses available to them and take their courses alongside local degree-seeking students.

Why you should study abroad at Roehampton

The University of Roehampton is a friendly, modern, lively academic community with a growing international reputation for the high quality of its teaching and research.

The university's academic teaching staff work at the cutting edge of their subjects, which means their teaching is based on the very latest knowledge. Unlike many other universities, all of its students are taught by research-active academic staff from their first year of study, which means students will study with staff working at the cutting-edge of their subjects. Roehampton's size (about 9,000 students) means that students get to know their lecturers and fellow students, giving students a personal learning experience.

Teaching styles are likely to be very different to Webster University; students adapt to a different way of learning and see their subject in a new light, giving them a renewed vigor with which to approach their studies. Study abroad students also bring a different perspective to the classroom, enriching them in class debate.

Study abroad students live and study with Roehampton students from over 130 countries. The collegiate campus experience helps students to really integrate into the community and the newly made friends teach them a lot about different cultural values.
