From New York to New Zealand, Italy to Argentina: study abroad opportunities for Richmond degree students

Tuesday evening, January 30, 2018, Professor Mary Robert (Dean of the School of Liberal Arts) and Camille Brewster and Dom Alessio (from International Programmes) met with 15 Richmond degree students to discuss study abroad opportunities. They talked about opportunities studying in one of Richmond’s own Florence or Rome centres or going on an exchange with our 25 plus university partners all around the globe. Professor Robert explained how much an international experience could enhance employment opportunities afterwards, making a CV stand out from the crowd. Dom and Camille in turn explained how study abroad could also personally transform lives. If students are interested in going abroad to Italy this Summer or Fall they need to speak with their advisors during this up-coming pre-registration. The minimum GPA for attending our Italy campus is 2.5. If someone wants to discuss going overseas to a partner they need to make an appointment with Camille during the Spring semester, after having chosen their preferred locale, viewing the application requirements and ensuring they meet the 3 GPA cut-off.
