The league table is compiled using range of measures, including the employment prospectus of graduates, student satisfaction and the quality of research undertaken.

Roehampton is already ranked best modern university in the capital in the other major UK league tables, the Guardian University Guide 2016 and the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016.

Although Roehampton has been awarding its own degrees since 2004, it has a much longer history through its four colleges, dating back 175 years.

In order to ensure students continue to receive an excellent experience, the University is undertaking a multi-million pound investment programme, which will see teaching facilities upgraded across campus this year, a new student accommodation building opening in 2016 and a new state-of-the-art library, scheduled to open to students in 2017.
