Roehampton has been ranked the best modern university in London by the Sunday Times University Guide

The University was placed higher than the universities of Middlesex, St Mary’s, Twickenham, Greenwich, Kingston and Westminster.

The news confirms Roehampton's status a centre of excellence for teaching and research, which places great emphasis on students’ employment skills.

The guide said: “Roehampton outperformed all other post-1992 universities in last year’s research ratings, entering two-thirds of its eligible academics and seeing 66 per cent of its work rated as world-leading or internationally excellent.”

The fact that Roehampton teaching staff are engaged in such high-level research is important because it means they are able to share the latest knowledge in their subject areas with their students.

The guide also highlighted Roehampton's favourable student-staff ratios. The University places great focus on ensuring academic staff are regularly available to students outside of lectures, as well as providing the best possible teaching. Roehampton’s commitment is illustrated by the eight National Teaching Fellows the University has on its academic staff.

The results of the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 means Roehampton is now ranked the best modern university in London according to all three major UK league tables, following on from positive results in the Complete University Guide 2016 and The Guardian University Guide 2016.
