Referencing at University of Roehampton

Life Sciences - Referencing

Life Sciences students use the Roehampton Harvard Referencing Guide.


Sport Psychology programmes use the American Psychological Association (APA) Referencing Style. However, for some non-psychology based modules BSc Sport Psychology students may be required to adopt the Roehampton Harvard Referencing style. Please speak with your module convener if you have questions about which style to use.
