The university is split between two campuses, both in the Greater London area: the Richmond campus, located near the crest of Richmond Hill and approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) from Richmond station, and the Kensington campus, located at a point equidistant between Kensington High Street and Cromwell Road. The Richmond campus is the primary residence of undergraduate students, especially freshman who have just enrolled at the university; its facade is a major symbol of the school and appears on almost all promotional literature. The school’s headquarters and admissions department are also located here. The Kensington campus, in reality, is a closely grouped set of buildings rather than a campus. It is where many of the upper-level undergraduate students reside. Both campuses are reasonably close to London Underground stations and the Richmond campus is served by the London Buses 371 route, currently operated by Transdev London.
AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE
Living and studying together, students from over 100 countries 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 you with an intercultural focus. It’s challenging and stimulating. It encourages you to form your own opinions.
DEGREES RECOGNISED IN AMERICA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM
At Richmond you will qualify simultaneously for both an American BA or BS degree and a UK BA (Honours) or BSc (Honours) degree, qualifications which are immediately recognised and respected by employers and graduate schools worldwide. The Richmond dual degree is possible because Richmond’s degrees have US accreditation (Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools), plus accreditation in the United Kingdom by the Open University Validation Services (OUVS). Richmond also holds UK government-recognized accreditation from the British Accreditation Council (BAC).
THE LONDON EXPERIENCE
As well as the excitement of living in one of the world’s most lively and cosmopolitan cities London obviously offers spectacular resources 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.
Over 100 countries are represented in the student population, encouraging exposure to and participation in various culture customs and activities. Religious holidays are supported by the institution as well as treasured American customs such as Thanksgiving.
Being located just outside of central London, student life at Richmond is quite different from life at any large American institution. Because of its location, it is easy and affordable to get into Central London where theatre, galleries, shops, restaurants, clubs, and many more are available for entertainment. The town of Richmond has various activities to offer as well. It is a fifteen minute scenic walk from the University to the centre.
