The University of Roehampton (UoR) is a long established, yet modern academic community in south-west London with a growing global reputation due to the high standard of its teaching and research.
Location is one of UoR's key assets. The university campus is nestled within 54 acres of landscaped parkland. Tree-lined avenues and open green spaces connect the facilities of this 180-year-old educational institution, yet students are only 30 minutes from central London by public transport. It really does give the best of both worlds the community atmosphere of a traditional campus university, with the proximity to one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
The university campus contains all the facilities needed for students to succeed, while also providing a safe and social place to live and work. Historic buildings sit alongside cutting-edge facilities. Lecture halls and computer laboratories sit beside dance and theatre venues, and sports facilities including a fully equipped gym which is available to all students. The university provides a wide range of indoor and outdoor social spaces, catering options, on-campus bars and various non-alcoholic spaces. The UoR Students' Union hosts live music events, weekly markets and club nights to service the university's social scene.
Students can apply for over one hundred different degree courses at undergraduate and post-graduate levels, as well as a number of doctorate study programs and research positions. UoR has established a firm reputation for performing world-leading research across all of its academic schools and faculties, and its academic staff are highly qualified within their fields, with the teaching experience to provide expertise to their students.
UoR's specialism in research, and its proximity to London create a wealth of opportunities for its students to find internships and job placements while at university, and its network of sponsors and alumni provide further support for UoR graduates.
