“I am excited to be part of the University of Roehampton’s online faculty because of the opportunity to work with exceptional students and staff from different parts of the globe. The University of Roehampton’s online postgraduate programmes are delivered in a collaborative, engaging virtual learning environment, which does not rely solely on rigid curricula. The environment is such that students have the opportunity to apply problem-solving skills and make substantial contributions to their own learning, as well as that of classmates.
