    PROGRAM OVERVIEW
  Roehampton University has its history in four teacher education colleges, the oldest of which dates from 1841. The four colleges came together in 1975 to form Roehampton Institute London, which achieved degree awarding powers and then federated with the University of Surrey in 2000 as the University of Surrey Roehampton. In 2004, it changed its name to Roehampton University.

Roehampton is comprised of 4 colleges, 3 of which (Froebel, Digby and Southlands) are adjacent to each other by a 5 minute walk.  Dance, Drama, and Education are in Froebel; other humanities depts. and Business, in the adjacent colleges. Whitelands College is Life Sciences and is reached by shuttle. There are about 8,000 students studying from undergraduate to PhD level in eight academic schools.
 
Eligibility: 3.0 cumulative GPA; declared dance major or minor; completion of 3-4 courses in dance performance.
