Roehampton Course Offering

Webster University students who study abroad at the University of Roehampton will receive academic credit at Webster University for all courses. Depending on the type of program and the student's major, specific course equivalencies may vary and are subject to review by individual departments.

Students will register for courses as part of the direct application process to Roehampton. Students will not see the final grades on their Webster record until after the official transcript arrives from Roehampton and is entered onto their record. Due to a difference in academic calendars, this happens several months after program completion. (Fall grades arrive in late March of the following semester, and Spring and Summer grades arrive in late October of the following semester).
Depending on the individual student's major, the credits from Roehampton will apply differently at Webster University. It is important that students maintain contact with their home-campus advisor regarding this.

Courses at University of Roehampton are called "Modules." A student studying abroad at Roehampton for a semester will take three modules and earn 15 US credits for the semester. The Office of Study Abroad works with students and their academic departments in order to obtain course equivalencies for the modules they take at Roehampton.
