Why study atRoehampton?
At Roehampton, we provide a wide range of opportunities for you to get involved, through volunteering, playing sport or music, or joining one of our many active student societies. We also have a beautiful parkland campus, in the heart of south-west London.
As a student, you will have be supported not just by those that teach you, but also by the wide range of staff who will be with you throughout your studies.
We provide health and wellbeing services, financial guidance and support to develop your study skills. You will also have access to careers advice, work placements, paid and voluntary work opportunities and career mentoring.
At Roehampton, we are focused on creating new knowledge and ideas that help us to understand our world and make it a better place. We are ranked the most research-intensive modern university in the UK. Our staff undertake world-class research across all our academic departments. This means that if you join us as a student, you will benefit from being taught by leading thinkers from your first year of study.
A Roehampton study predicting locations of Tiger Sharks will help countries to develop shark management strategies and could protect swimmers from potential attacks.
Dr Robert Busch, Senior Lecturer in Molecular Immunology in the Department of Life Sciences, is working on a two-year project co-funded by the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society, identifying how vitamin D protects against the disease.

Training-specific functional, neural, and hypertrophic adaptations to explosive- vs. sustained-contraction strength training.
Maximal and explosive strength training elicit distinct neuromuscular adaptations, specific to the training stimulus
Contraction type influences the human ability to use the available torque capacity of skeletal muscle during explosive efforts
Short-term training for explosive strength causes neural and mechanical adaptations
