Program Information5954424196_7e8d573a52_m.jpg

Missouri Southern is a member of the Missouri Consortium for International Programs and Studies, which has been sponsoring the Missouri London Program since 1982. The MLP sends students to the  University of Roehampton  in southwest London (in the Wimbledon area). The University of Roehampton, with 9,000 students, is the only traditional campus university in the city; the bustling heart of central London is just six miles away.

Students can choose courses from the Roehampton  Study Abroad Catalogue. Also, London Studies modules have been developed for study abroad students. These courses make the most of Roehampton's close proximity to central London. London is used as the classroom, and you are offered the chance to experience the city from an exciting academic perspective. 

The tuition cost is £6,600 per semester. Rooms are single occupancy with shared kitchen facilities; a room with a private bathroom is £3,022.71 for the Fall semester and £3,477.23 the longer Spring semester. A standard room with a shared bathroom is £2,553.29 for the Fall semester and £2,935.17 for the Spring semester. A deluxe room in the new Elm Grove Hall with a private bathroom and a double bed is £3,588.51 for the Fall semester and £4,129.20 for the Spring semester. There is an optional Social Programme cost of £420; this includes evening events in and around London and guided day trips to cultural and historic locations in the U.K. MSSU students who are eligible can receive a study abroad grant to cover most or all of their airfare.  All of your MSSU financial aid applies to this program, and you do not have to pay MSSU tuition on top of the Roehampton costs!

Roehampton does not have any insurance requirements, but suggests that students check with their existing coverage provider to make sure they will be covered for medical needs while abroad. MSSU recommends that students purchase insurance from LewerMark. Costs can vary by age and length of your Study Abroad Experience, but for a typical student it ranges from about $150 to $200 for a single semester. The British National Health Service advises all students to have a vaccination against meningitis before they begin their studies.

All on-campus accommodations are self-catering, so students cook for themselves. During the day there are standard university canteens serving hot food; students can always grab a pub-style meal in The Union Bar

Roehampton has now added a meal plan so that you can eat at the restaurants and cafes on campus.

Semester dates for Fall 2024: arrival and orientation, Sept. 18-19; classes start, Sept. 30; classes finish, Dec. 13; last departure date, Jan. 2.

Semester dates for Spring 2025: arrival and orientation, Jan. 22-23; classes start, Jan. 27; spring vacation, April 17-May 2; classes finish, TBA; last departure date, June 7. Students coming in the spring semester have a longer time on campus; many use the spring break to travel throughout Europe.

Students will enroll in 60 credits at Roehampton, which is the equivalent of 12-15 U.S. semester hours. As a guide, Roehampton says a 10-credit module is worth 3 U.S. semester hours, and a 20-credit module is worth 4-5 U.S. semester hours.

Application deadline is May 31 for the Fall semester, Oct. 31 for the spring semester, and April 1 for  International Summer School.
