Welcome to the Graduate School

The Graduate School is the centre of the research student community at Roehampton. All research students belong to the Graduate School in addition to their Academic Department.

The Graduate School supports students studying for research degrees in the following ways:

  • Administers applications for research degrees.
  • Oversees the Research Student Development Programme.
  • Supports production of a Personal Development Plan to help students track their research career at Roehampton.
  • Promotes research events, seminars and funding opportunities.
  • Supports students with the Research Degree Board-related administrative requirements of their programme.
  • The School also provides a forum for research students from different disciplines and backgrounds to share ideas, information and to meet and socialise, including the Annual Research Student Conference.
  • Welcomes applications from Visiting Research Students

In addition, the Graduate School provides an opportunity for the views of research students to be heard. Its overseeing body, the Graduate School Committee, which includes student representatives, works with academic departments and central university services to promote the interests of research students and ensure they have the best possible experience.
