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. We have been consistently ranked as London’s best modern university for three years (Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 and 2016, Guardian University Guide 2016, The Complete University Guide 2016 and 2017).


At Roehampton, we are focused on creating new knowledge and ideas that help us to understand our world and make it a better place.

We are ranked the most research-intensive modern university in the UK. We have staff undertaking world-class research across all our academic departments. This means that if you join us as a student you will benefit from being taught by leading thinkers from their first year of study.

Here are some examples of the impact our research has on the wider world.

  • Scientific Discoveries
  • Improving Lives
  • Supporting Young People
  • Enriching Culture
