Based on a beautiful parkland campus, close to Putney and Hammersmith and within easy reach of the West End, we are ranked the best modern university in London according to all three major UK league tables - the Complete University Guide 2016, the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 and the Guardian University Guide 2016.

We have an excellent research profile, with some of the most highly-regarded academic departments in the UK. Two-thirds of our research has been officially judged either 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent' and we are ranked the most research-intensive modern university in the country.

We have a series of upcoming events that will give you the opportunity to find out more about postgraduate study with us.
