The Guardian University Guide 2016, the Sunday Times Good University Guide and the Complete University Guide this year have all ranked the University of Roehampton as the best modern university in London.
Roehampton is one of London’s campus universities. Overlooking Richmond Park, the scenic campus features lakes and woodland walks. The campus contains a mixture of architectural styles ranging from 18th-century buildings to new modern structures. While located in the south west of London, Roehampton is only a short train journey from central London.
The university is popular with students and performs strongly in league tables, especially with regards to graduate employability. Students can enjoy innovative teaching facilities, including well equipped science laboratories, a sports performance centre, studios for dance and drama students and modern media and photography suites.
In the subject-level rankings in the Guardian league table, Roehampton degree courses feature among the top 20 universities in the UK in five different subject areas. These are Journalism, Film and Photography, Classics and Ancient History, Sports Sciences and English and Creative Writing.
