The University has seen the biggest rise of any of the UK’s universities, according to the independently produced league table, climbing 27 places in total.

The results are based on factors including student satisfaction and employment prospects, the quality and intensity of research and spending on academic services and student facilities.

This league table is the latest evidence of the University’s growing international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. The results come in the same month the Times Higher Education magazine rated Roehampton the top modern university in the capital for the student experience it provides. The most recent Sunday Times Good University Guide also ranks Roehampton as the best modern university in London.

Roehampton is currently making a significant investment in student facilities, including new accommodation and a state-of-the-art library. This will ensure that our campus will be even better and that the excellent experience we provide to our students will improve further.

The full results of the Complete University Guide 2015 can be found on its website.
