Study for a Masters Degree in London, UK
About our Postgraduate Progammes:
The Postgraduate programmes are one-year programmes designed to prepare candidates for careers in their desired field of study. For this purpose, innovative courses on contemporary issues are taught, opportunity for practical application is fostered, and seminars are conducted by leading guest speakers. These complementing and supporting elements combine to create a learning opportunity that is profoundly challenging and awakening.
Richmond’s Postgraduate programmes are based at our Kensington campus, a vibrant area of central London, providing easy access to the Capital’s arts, cultural, political, and business sectors – especially valuable for the workplace internships which are an integral element of the Postgraduate programmes.
Postgraduate students at Richmond will study for either an MBA or a Master of Arts degree. Richmond is Accredited in the US by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, and some of our postgraduate programmes are also validated by The Open University in the UK, providing graduates with a dually-accredited degree. Richmond is also registered in the US as a not-for-profit corporation.
