I often say that my year at Richmond the American International University in London was the best year of my life so far. Studying at Richmond tied into so many different subject areas, such as philosophy, religion, psychology, history and art. After only one year of study, I had become great researchers, writers and experts on different areas. Living and going to school in the heart of Kensington made it so easy to get involved in London culture. Although we worked hard, there was plenty of time for music, museums, shopping, cultural events and socializing. I made wonderful friends at Richmond, I became intimately familiar with one of the greatest cities in the world and I obtained a master’s degree, all in one year.
