    how is the actually uni?
    Hey,
    I've really enjoyed my time here so far, in 3rd year now. I think it's a nice place and all the staff I have encountered have been knowledgeable and supportive.
    What course are you interested in? Was there a particular aspect of the Uni you wanted to know about specifically?

    Hi,

    I don't do Psychology myself but I would definitely order a prospectus online if you haven't got one. The next Open Day is 16th November so it might be worth a visit too if you can get here easily, even if not on an Open Day, just to look around and see for yourself. I have seen some of the Psychology laboratories and they look pretty impressive.

    Roehampton has 4 colleges and Psychology is based on the Whitelands campus, a 10 minute walk from the rest of the Uni. They have their own little community (lecture rooms, accommodation, social area, computer room) but also regularly come to the main campus for the library, Union, gym and events. If you came and preferred the accommodation on the main campus, that's always an option.

    Hope this helps!

    You're welcome. That's fair enough. You could always come just to look around the campus yourself although you probably wouldn't be able to go into the laboratories and lecture rooms. You can do a self-guided tour: http://www.roehampton.ac.uk/admissio...ays/tours.html.
    If you do visit it might be worth giving Enquiries a ring or email on the off chance that you may be able to speak to a lecturer. Here's the link: http://studentzone.roehampton.ac.uk/...ies/index.html
    Good luck with your application!

    Yes, or you can get the 265. It's not far at all on the bus, only a couple of minutes. Get off at Roehampton University Main Entrance.

    You can check out the RSU website: http://roehamptonstudent.com/ where you can find out what clubs, societies, sports, days out and trips away are on offer. The Uni has acoustic, comedy, quiz and bands nights. There is a weekly 'Bop' on a Friday where everyone gets dressed up and there's a DJ in the Union and adjoining hall until 2am. Places where students like to go in the day or evening include; Kingston, Putney, Richmond, Westfields and Hammersmith which are all within 15 minutes away on the bus. Central London isn't too far, even for a night out as there are night buses or a shared taxi for about £7 each, depending on where you go. It can take as little as 20 minutes to get there.
    Hope that answers your question.
    Good Luck with your application, I'm, sure you'll receive confirmation soon.

    Are you going to Roehampton Uni in 2012 ?
    if so what are you planning on studying ?
    I went to Roehampton Uni for my school work experience last year, the site looks good, but it's not exactly the greatest university in the world. Well it depends, what subject are you going to do?

    The attitudes of some of the students, I don't know why some people bother wasting their time and money. However most of the people are friendly and committed, if you live on campus (at any of the colleges) then you'll find a nice community atmosphere.

    Some of the admin can be a bit disorganised at times.

    Some would say that there are too few books in the library that they need. That is partly from selfish students stealing them/not bringing them back on time, however the library are going to be buying loads of ebooks and journals in the next year so they're available online, and have launched a thing where students can actually buy them out the library's funds of they come across one they find and want to read. Not sure how it works but it's what I've heard.

    There's no tube station in Roehampton which can be annoying! Putney is really close by by bus though.

    I guess there will be bad points at any uni.

    Overall I loved my experience there

    I love the look of Roehampton, hopefully doing Criminology there. How close is it to the centre of London, close enough that everything costs about 4 times more than the rest of the country, or is it slightly further out?

    The guardian league table doesn't mean much really.

    My best mate did Criminology combined with Photography and loved it.

    It's out of central London, but not so far that it's hard to get to (15mins from Barmes station to Waterloo, or a 10min bus ride to Putney where you can get the tube). The catering in the university itself is rather expensive in my opinion, however just don't be lazy and cook your own food :P There's a co op near the Whitelands campus, about 10mins from the main campus, which is the cheapest bet for supplies, or a 24hr Asda a 10min bus away. Pubs and clubs in the surrounding areas (Putney, Kingston, Hammersmith etc) are a lot cheaper than central.
    The campus itself is lovely and doesn't feel like London, howeevr you do have to get buses to get anywhere
