Roehampton offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in nursing, computer science, dance, drama, English literature, creative writing, the humanities, business, law, psychology, life sciences, health sciences, social sciences, film, photography, digital media, teacher training and education studies. We are also a pioneer in teacher training and, through our colleges, have provided higher education to women for longer than any other institution in the country.

Whichever course you choose, you will have access to study skills and career support from your first year, including our thriving career mentoring scheme, which pairs Roehampton students with our successful graduates, and opportunities for placements across many of our courses. Our results speak for themselves: Roehampton graduates earn £130 more per year than the average UK graduate and £1,150 more than the average graduate from a modern London university (Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) results 2019); and 93% of our undergraduate students are in work or further study within six months of graduation according to official national figures (Destinations of Leavers of Higher Education Survey 2019 results).

We are the most research intensive modern university in the country (Research Excellence Framework) and have been awarded Silver in the Teaching Excellence Framework.
