Update for January 2021 intake: In January, our aim is that our spacious 54-acre parkland campus will be open for students to enjoy safely. This includes our excellent teaching facilities, study areas, social spaces, student accommodation, student medical centre and world-class library. We have put measures in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of our community. We will also provide more flexibility and support to students joining us, including providing teaching and student experience activities online as well. You can find out more about our response to Covid-19 and FAQs here.
Designed specifically for international students, the International Foundation Programme (IFP) offers you a pathway from your current qualifications to your chosen University of Roehampton undergraduate degree.
The IFP is a 3 or 2-term programme focusing on building your everyday English language confidence alongside the academic English and study skills needed for undergraduate success.
You will also study subject-specific modules in either business, science or humanities on your IFP that will prepare you for your chosen undergraduate degree.
If you have the equivalent of IELTS 5.5 with no sub score below 5.5, the majority of the target degrees are available for a joint CAS option. This means you will only apply for your Tier 4 visa once, for the whole of your foundation and undergraduate study at Roehampton.
