In cooperation with Roehampton University in London, Biola offers the opportunity for a Fall semester of study in the United Kingdom. Roehampton is composed of four colleges: Digby Stuart College, Froebel Institute College, Southlands College and Whitelands College. It is located near Wimbledon, six miles southwest of the center of London. Application, payment of tuition and room are made through Biola. The applicant must be a junior or a senior not graduating in December with a 3.0 GPA and must be approved by the department of the student’s major, the coordinator of the program and Roehampton University.

Students who are accepted live in campus housing and take three or four courses in the regular University curriculum. An additional course will be taught by an instructor designated by Biola, which fulfills the Bible integration requirement (BBST 465). Roehampton offers courses in a wide variety of academic disciplines, but students should inquire early to see if their academic needs can be met by the program. Because of the nature of British higher education, students are encouraged to take their courses in their areas of specialization.

The program gives students the opportunity to experience the British educational system firsthand, while enjoying the unique historical and cultural environment of London and the British Isles. Students receive an orientation at Roehampton before starting the term of study, and a Biola-designated faculty member will mentor the students while at Roehampton, providing counsel and guidance throughout the semester.

Students participating in the program are expected to abide by the rules and regulations of Roehampton University; in addition, they are expected to maintain Biola’s code of conduct as they would on the La Mirada campus. At the end of the semester Roehampton will forward the student’s transcript to Biola, where it will be interpreted in light of our American grading system.
