Quality, Teaching Standards & Accreditation
Richmond, the American International University in London is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the only university in the UK to award students with two degrees in 1.
The University has been recently granted a taught degree awarding powers (TDAP), giving UK higher education providers the right to award bachelor’s degrees with honours. This new chapter represent an exciting beginning for the institution, that previously used to award its degrees by the Open University, the UK’s largest academic institution and a world pioneer in distance learning.
Upon successful completing their studies, students graduate with a dual degree, which is valid in U.K. and recognised in the U.S., a unique opportunity that opens up more work opportunities globally.
Richmond has also undergone a successful full institutional review by the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for high standard teaching and has also been recognised as a leading international university of 2016 by the Higher Education Review.
The BPS accreditation gives Richmond Psychology graduates the opportunity to gain Graduate and/or Chartered Membership of the Society and access to the widest range of training, development and employment opportunities.
The university partners with The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) – a trade association for the public relations sector in the united Kingdom, and is the largest PR association in Europe, with more than 12,000 members including agencies, in-house communications teams and individual media professionals. The partner offers various opportunities for graduate internships in PR, creative and advertising industries.
The Luxury Brand Management programme is offered in partnership with Condé Nast – a mass media company that has been synonymous with engaging, visually arresting and innovative publishing. We host occasionally few guest lectures and industry speakers. We also arrange visits to their offices to get our graduates a better feel of the day-to-day agency’s operations.
