Coronavirus: International and study abroad students

Guidance for prospective international students 

We fully intend to be able to welcome all students to join us on our campus at the start of term on Monday 21 September, or earlier during Arrivals Week. However, should students need to, we can allow enrolment on most of our courses as late as Monday 19 October 2020.

At this time, we are planning to deliver teaching in person at the start of term, but if the situation requires it, we will support all students to study remotely online until it is safe for you to join us on campus.

We can now offer an online English test should this be required. This test will be available for Roehampton offer holders as a way to demonstrate proof of English language. Further details on how to book a test will be sent over in the next few days, with a link. Our online English Test can also be used for entry for pre-sessional English courses.

We can guarantee on-campus accommodation to students who accept an offer from us by 31 July. We have a wide range of options, you can find out more on our website.

We are currently working to make more of our courses available for a January 2021 start – and we will be sure to update you once this is confirmed. Courses will include our MBA and most postgraduate Business School degrees. If students confirm for a September 2020 start and wish to later change to a January start, we can help you do this.

More guidance for prospective international students can be found in the Applicants and offer holders FAQ here

I am studying abroad in the US on a J-1 visa, how will online study affect my visa status?

The US Government has announced that you will not be in breach of your visa regulations by switching to online learning and teaching temporarily, therefore you will be able to remain in the US and your visa status will not be affected.

I'm on a visa. What happens if I return to my home country?

Following guidance from the Home Office, the University will continue your Tier 4 sponsorship during the suspension of face-to-face teaching. However all Tier 4 students should continue to engage with all learning, teaching and assessment online.

Any Tier 4 students who cannot attend their course due to the coronavirus or suspected coronavirus will have their absences classed as authorised. This means your Tier 4 sponsorship will not be negatively affected. Please make sure you e-mail tier4attendance@roehampton.ac.uk to inform us.

If you decide to return to your home country, we will continue your Tier 4 sponsorship during your period of absence. It is very important you notify us, both for visa requirements and so that we can support you appropriately to continue your studies. Please e-mail immigration@roehampton.ac.uk with the following information:

  • Date of departure
  • Travel details i.e. flight confirmation
  • Reason for leaving UK
  • Planned return date (if possible)

My host university has closed and transitioned to online learning but accommodation remains open. Do I have to return home?

I am studying abroad and want to return home to the UK but my host university is not offering classes online. What do I do?

It is advised you keep up to date with Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel information as well as any local or state travel restrictions and the advice of your host university. If your accommodation remains open, you do not need to return home but can do should you wish to.

Will returning home affect my Erasmus+ Grant or Scholarship?

Students studying at an Erasmus+ partner institution will still be able to receive funding for the duration of time you were abroad. Roehampton Abroad Scholarships will not be affected. Please contact roehamptonabroad@roehampton.ac.uk for more information.

Will returning home affect my student loan?

You should be aware that returning to the UK may impact your student loan entitlement. We are working to gain clarity from the Student Loans Company. The latest information can be found here.

I am currently studying abroad, will Roehampton tell me I need to come home?

We are currently closely monitoring the situation and are in regular communication with host universities. We would advise you to follow travel advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Should the UK Government designate the location you are currently studying in high-risk, Roehampton Abroad will be able to arrange flights for you to come home.

What will happen to international students staying on campus at Roehampton?

We appreciate not all students are able to, want to or can travel home. No students will be forced to leave University-managed halls of residence in any scenario. In an emergency scenario, you may be asked to move rooms as per the conditions of your accommodation agreement.

I am a study abroad student and require medical treatment, can I use the NHS or do I need to go through my own insurance provider?

In an emergency you would be provided medical assistance. However, you must check with your insurance provider as you may need to pay for a doctor's appointment and some other services.

I am a study abroad student that had to leave campus early. What happens in terms of my transcript?

Teaching and learning will continue online with alternative assessments provided where possible. Academic departments will contact students directly with further details. Students will still receive transcripts once they have completed assignments within three months of the programme finish date.
