    Top teaching and research

    Roehampton was rated number one for dance research in the UK in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), which measures quality of research in higher education. It judged 94% of our research 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

    Our 20-plus staff bring wide-ranging expertise to their teaching and research supervision. From leading scholars in dance anthropology to internationally active choreographers, they have respected research profiles and are strongly active in the professional dance sector.

Most of our teaching staff are members of the Higher Education Academy and three staff have won prestigious Roehampton Teaching Fellowships.

    We have very low dropout rates with 95% student retention for Single Honours BA Dance Studies (HESA 2009/10).
