    Richmond, the American International University in London provides students with an education which encourages them to explore a wide range of subjects and programs. It is designed to allow the discovery of the connections between different academic areas such as literature, science, mathematics, writing, business, psychology, and sociology. It is a broad based education, an ideal preparation for a range of careers.

    Living and study together, Richmond's students are from over 100 countries, and are ready for a world where the ability to communicate effectively across national and cultural boundaries is as valuable as traditional academic achievement. A Richmond education offers a global perspective. It examines the patterns of similarities and differences between cultures and provides students with an intercultural focus. It's challenging and stimulating. It encourages students to form their own opinions.

    At Richmond students will qualify an American Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, and in many cases, simultaneously a UK BA (Honours) or BSc (Honours) degree. The Richmond dual degree is possible because Richmond's degrees have US accreditation, plus institutional approval in the United Kingdom. BA Degrees are offered in Art, Design & Media, and Performance & Theatre Arts.

    As well as the excitement of living in one of the world's most lively and cosmopolitan cities London obviously offers spectacular resource and opportunities for learning outside the classroom. However, Richmond courses also bring the life of the city - its people, institutions, politics, problems, and history into lectures and class projects. Add to all this an international faculty, flexible curriculum allowing you to explore outside your main specialization, small classes and campuses in two of London's most beautiful areas and you'll find Richmond a great place to earn an undergraduate or masters degree.
