The Department of Life Sciences has a long tradition of postgraduate education in life sciences, with particular strengths in ageing, chronic diseases and nutrition.

In 2014 Roehampton’s Heath Science Research Centre submitted a combined report to the Research Excellence Framework, with 84% of the research output rated either “internationally excellent” or “world-leading” for its impact.
