Pro: Lecturers and departments are fantastic! Nice facilities and a green campus. Cons: The university administration is abhorrent!!! They are extremely disorganised - enrollment is always late, payment of loans/bursary is late, response time can be up to a week (if ever!), and class registration on moodle isn't available until past the first week of class. International students should be weary of courses longer than a year as year-to-year tuition increases can go up drastically! While they state to expect a 3-5% increase, my last year went up 10% with no explanation.

Q&A


Q
Hi can anyone studying photography tell me what it's like please? How are the tutors? Do different tutors teach specialist areas of the course? Are the facilities good? How many on the course? Thank you.

Q
I like the look of Roehampton and the reviews are great. I'm just a bit worried about the male/female ratio (I'm a girl). I went to an all-girls school and didn't rate the experience. Is Roehampton heavily female-oriented? e.g. are some flats in halls occupied exclusively by girls?

Q
Hi, I am thinking of staying on the Main campus even though my sports and exercise science course and it is on the Whiltelands one--is that a big deal? thanks!
By member834114 On 14th October 18
If you're happy to travel roughly a mile every day then it shouldn't be a problem. It's about an 11-minute walk.

Q
Hi everybody! I would like to ask you for information about Drama, theater and performance degree. Do you know something about this degree?
By member1031669 On 18th May 18
The course combines theoretical, historical and practical approaches. The course has close connections to the London theatre scene. There is an exciting calendar of events with some of the world’s leading performance makers and academics in regular attendance.

A great campus with good lecture rooms, plenty of cafes, and the union bar. Good lecturers on my course. There's a lot of societies to join, sports memberships especially are great deals for a commonwealth membership £65 you can take most classes as much as you like for the year.

I'm currently a second year at the university of Roehampton, I enjoy this uni very much for the diverse events that are planned, the college spirit and the nice green campus. The people are friendly, and welcoming. The uni overall feels like a big family, I highly recommend it.

Located in a very quiet Part of London not the London experience I expected. Many people are either far internationals or form London and surrounding areas and stick with their own making harder if you don't fall into these catabolise to fit in

Vibrant atmosphere at nights out and other student events. Lecturers have been helpful and mostly very friendly throughout my three years. Beautiful campus, a real green retreat in the middle of London. Perfect if you want the campus lifestyle. A new library has recently been built and it is a lovely building to read and work in. On campus accommodation wasn't the best in elm as it was loud and lots of fire alarms. Generally though, a great place to study.

Academically, it's improving but not intellectually stimulating; getting a degree here is easy. Student life is okay, essential facilities can be found on campus and everything in regards to what London has to offer is in moderate distance.

Roehampton is blessed with a beautiful campus where both your student halls and lectures can be in the same building! Yet, this only serves the pretentious 'bubble' that Roehampton finds itself in with so little connectiom to London, that it's really really hard to consider it London. If you're looking for the city life and a diverse culture, then I'm afraid Roehampton isn't for you. The lack of culture is very basic, just like it's student union. However, if a community is what you're after then Roehampton can certainly please you. Even if the students are a bit of a mixed bag. Also, I love my course. I'm just mentioning the social atmosphere as it's a big part!

The University has a great sense of community being on a small campus with lots of green areas, however it is severely lacking in facilities, some accomidation is over 20years old and falling apart. Overall I am enjoying my course. Social events could be more diverse as the university clubs can be very expensive, £5 for entry and £3 for cloakroom and £7 for drinks on a student night out ! Ridiculous. Good community sense. Bad support services, very generic, no sports facilities. More societies that are organised.

Doing a combined degree and have had a problem with every department. Lecture halls with no tables and not enough chairs! Lectures who don’t show up and say they don’t want to teach! I didn’t have a desk chair or WiFi in my room for 8 weeks! Would avoid unless you want the stress. They let anyone in and that really shows!

After encountering a difficult first year at another university, I transferred to Roehampton and it was easily the best decision I could have ever made. The lectures and seminars were extremely insightful and the lecturers were incredibly professional, kind and approachable. During my final year of my undergraduate, my friends and I founded a society and the Student’s Union were extremely supportive of our society event ideas; we were even awarded “Best Academic Society” at the RSU Awards in June 2018. I enjoyed my undergraduate experience at Roehampton so much that I decided to stay on for further study; I am now half way through my Master of Science - in a completely new field, thanks to Roehampton for helping me land an internship in the summer of 2017 which helped me discover a newfound passion - and, again, staying on this beautiful London campus was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not to mention, the new library is incredible!

Although we are living in a democratic society where freedom of speak is basic human rights, some of you went out of your way to express your very negative perceptions of this University. Come on people. I have had some serious challenges during my studies that kept me from completing the programme, and the staff has been very helpful supporting throughout those challenging times. There are more positives than negatives about the staff members of the university or the organisation as a whole.

Pro: Lecturers and departments are fantastic! Nice facilities and a green campus. Cons: The university administration is abhorrent!!! They are extremely disorganised - enrollment is always late, payment of loans/bursary is late, response time can be up to a week (if ever!), and class registration on moodle isn't available until past the first week of class. International students should be weary of courses longer than a year as year-to-year tuition increases can go up drastically! While they state to expect a 3-5% increase, my last year went up 10% with no explanation.

The Roehampton online degrees almost seems like a scam. Worst University, staff and faculty. Technology is faulty and feedback is ridiculously late and your work is likely not even graded by the profs. Save your money and go elsewhere.

Roehampton is the biggest mistake of my life. I thought I was going to a learning environment who took me as an individual student serisouly. Feedback on assignments have consisted of a sentence full of spelling mistakes. Tutors have often been more interested in chit chatting than actually teaching. Admin and support has been the most horrible I've ever experienced. When I graduated this spring, I could not even get a transcript with my grades on before June without paying a fee and waiting 3 weeks. Way to help me on my way to applying for master programs! Honestly I never write reviews, but I am just so angry for all the s*** I've had to endure at this university. Some aspects are really really good, but overal; would NOT recommend it to anyone who are serious about their studies.

Society wise there is very few now that I'm comparing to other unis. There is a student union cafe is good. Dont let the wonderfully greenery images fool you on their website though... during 11/12 months of the year it looks pretty grim.

Roehampton University

Lovely campus, very green. Lots of building work being done at the moment (Jan 2015). Lecturers are very enthusiastic and very easy to talk to. If in any doubt, I feel comfortable talking to them.

Cons?
Expensive to live as it's in London. Accommodation is poor, with very bad WiFi.
