Richmond’s Rome Campus

Richmond Rome Campus

With its sunny climate and unparalleled wealth of ancient history and monuments Rome offers a rewarding international education experience and countless opportunities to immerse oneself in Italian culture and appreciate ancient and contemporary art, architecture, opera, music, theatre, cinema and food.  As a contemporary European capital, it is utterly unique. Located between Italy’s North and South, once the seat of a great empire, Rome is still a special place, a monumental, busy capital, centre of government, international organizations and corporations and yet an appealingly relaxed place, with a centre that still preserves its traditions and old village charms.

We offer a range of programmes in Rome including Semester and Summer in Rome, the Freshman Year and the Gap Year Programmes.  All of our programmes are taught in English but Italian for beginners, intermediate and advanced learners are also offered.

The Rome Study Center is located in a beautiful palazzo in Piazza Sant’ Andrea della Valle in one of the heart of Rome’s historic centre. The Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Colosseum, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Roman Forum, Trastevere and the Vatican can be reached on foot in a few minutes.

In addition to classrooms, the Rome Center houses offices, a computer lab with Internet access and printing facilities, a reference library and two small student lounges. The library has a selection of 2,000 volumes in English related to Richmond courses, a film collection and periodicals available for student reference. Students have free admission to the extensive library collections available to them in Rome and access to the University web resources for e-books such as Dowsonera, Jstore and EBSCO. Wireless Internet is available for free to all students. A dedicated team of qualified English speaking staff members is available to support students with a range of services from academic queries, accommodation, advice on adjusting to the new culture to travel advice and local area information.

In addition to consulting with their academic advisors, Richmond degree-course students should consult Richmond’s University Catalogue and the Regulations for Validated Awards of the Open University for Institutions Offering Dual Awards at  http://www.richmond.ac.uk/catalogues/
