Student Blog - Richmond, The American International University in London

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since my last post, which means I have a lot to update on! I’m still selling a lot of old things on Depop and I’ve also moved onto using Ebay too. I’ve been reading as well, so much so that I ended up crying to ‘The Fault in Our […]

Welcome back to part 2 of “I Get By with A Little Help From My Friends” a project inspired by the current semi lockdown situation. As we’re still faced with many uncertainties, we are all experiencing lockdown differently. As you’ve read in part 1 stories from students and people from the entertainment industry, as much […]

We’re living in strange times, faced with many uncertainties. As we all are experiencing lockdown differently, I decided to create a project where I’d reach out to my friends and people I know from both university and the music industry and ask how they’re doing during these times. The project title is  “I Get By […]

Hi everyone! My internship as a Marketing Assistant with Together TV ends today which marks two months since I started. I’ve continued to use the Buffer software to plan social media posts, but I’ve also been making the Instagram account more aesthetically pleasing. I use Canva to create Instagram stories and highlight covers so the […]

Hi everyone! It’s such a strange time but I hope you’re well and looking forward to some normality soon! My internship with Together TV is going great, it’s almost been a month! Was weird meeting everyone over Zoom but I’m gaining good work experience. Twice a week we have a meeting with three teams: Production, […]

Hi everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the lovely weather during the Bank Holiday weekend. I’ve been trying to keep busy since the university year ended as I’ve found this is the best way to stay motivated. I’m not doing Summer school but during the day I work on my dissertation to get a head […]

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all staying well and safe! My final exams finished yesterday which was such a relief, I had 5 exams and two 4000 word essays all due in the same week…I’m surprised I managed it but at least it’s done now! Now that the university year is over, I’ll be going […]

Hi everyone! Saying 2020 is off to a rocky start is a bit of an understatement right now…but I’ll run through some of things I was doing before I wasn’t allowed to leave my house. I said in my last post that I had an interview for an internship, I’m happy to say that I […]

Hi everyone! We are exactly halfway through the semester and its going so quickly! I’m taking six classes this term which is a lot (especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays because my schedule goes from 9am to 9pm) but luckily, I don’t have classes on Fridays, so I use that as my ‘catch up on work’ […]

Hi everyone! I’m coming to the end of my time studying abroad at the University of North Florida as tomorrow is my last full day here. I fly Friday morning and I can’t wait to go home and see everyone again. My parents, sister and boyfriend will be picking me up from the airport which […]

Hello everyone! I don’t have anything as exciting as going to New York to talk about, but I have been doing some fun stuff! Last week my photography class was invited to Jacksonville Zoo so we could attend a seminar held by a National Geographic photographer! Being able to ask Joel Sartore questions was so […]

Hi everyone! The last two weeks have been quite busy, we have finals in a month and some tests before that which are taking up a lot of my time. I now only work at the call centre once a week because I would rather study and it can get a bit repetitive. Right now, […]

It is hard for me to believe that August will mark the one year anniversary of the beginning of my study abroad adventure in Fall 2018. It might have only been four months, but thanks to the opportunity to study abroad at Richmond, The American International University in London, these four months presented numerous opportunities […]

Hi! Much has happened since I wrote my first blog post – I got a job as a student researcher at the university’s public opinion laboratory, met a few new people, taken what felt like a thousand exams, and visited the oldest city in the United States, St. Augustine. However, my biggest joy was finally […]

Hi everyone! I think it’s safe to say that this is my favourite blog post yet! After midterms ended, I was pretty much just preparing for my boyfriend to come visit. He came for a week and we met in Orlando – I took the bus to Orlando and it was the LONGEST thing I’ve […]

Hey guys, here’s my third update! Not too much has happened since my last post because we had midterm exams so I’ve been really busy studying, classes are so much harder here than they are at Richmond. Most of the tests I take are multiple choice because the classes are so big that the teachers […]

Hey, so much has happened over the last two weeks! I’ve been doing a lot more exploring of Jacksonville like seeing the sights downtown, the beach and going to an outdoor cinema in a baseball arena. A girl who goes to UNF messaged me that she saw my last post and asked if I wanted […]

Hi! My name is Cristina, I’m a Junior year student at Richmond, studying BA Finance and Investment, and I am originally from Romania. Although Richmond was my first choice, I have always wanted to experience a college education in the United States. That is why my roommate and I decided to study abroad at the […]

Hi! I’m Zara, a third year International Business Studies student at Richmond. I live in Essex which is about an hour from central London. I love to travel and see other countries and so I am currently studying abroad for a semester at the University of North Florida 🙂 My roommate and I decided to […]

By Kalyn Franke Hi! I’m Kalyn, aka, and I was a student at the University of Pittsburgh studying Communications when I studied abroad in 2012 at Richmond, The American International University in London. Richmond showed me that I wanted to work and live in London full-time, so now I work with study abroad students […]

By Mariann Gyorke There it was, on my nightstand, presumably placed there by my Mum in anticipation of my visit. The Yearbook! A closer inspection revealed its title: “The year ’93: Total Recall” and sure enough, memories started flooding back once I opened it… I graduated from Richmond in May 1993, the first Hungarian student […]

By Raghad Tmumen South Kensington and High Street Kensington is basically the hub for all of us Richmond students. Some of us go to the museums quite frequently as we take courses on the High Street campus. Though, have you ever wondered what mystical secrets these places hold? Aside from being utterly rich and full […]
