University of Roehampton
We are committed to ensuring that all of our students, regardless of their background, fulfil their potential. They become the kind of graduate that employers value: a confident, critical thinker; adaptable, able to work well with people from all walks of life and with an ongoing passion for learning.
Situated on a beautiful parkland campus in the heart of south-west London, the University of Roehampton has a proud history stretching back 175 years through our four Colleges. Our history informs our ethos, built on community and partnership.
Roehampton has a diverse community of 10,000 students from 140 countries and a cosmopolitan outlook, with over half of their students the first in their family to attend university. They are also one the largest providers of teacher training in the UK and one of the fastest-growing providers of online education, with 5,000 students studying for Roehampton degrees online.
Our Student Partnership offers our students a say in how we run the University. We provide a wide range of opportunities for them to get involved, through volunteering, playing sport, music, or joining one of our many active student societies.
We are focused on creating new knowledge and ideas that help us to understand our world and make it a better place; two-thirds of our research is officially recognised as of world-class standard. We have research-active staff engaged in teaching across all of our academic departments, which means our students benefit from being taught by leading thinkers from their first year of study.
Roehampton has an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research. We are ranked as the best modern university in London according to all three major UK league tables.
Our growing reputation means that we are seeing rising demand from students. We have therefore commenced an ambitious £80million masterplan to enhance our campus. This will allow us to continue to offer our students and staff the best of both worlds: a stunning green campus, with modern facilities, in one of the most vibrant cities in the world.
