The Office of Student Leadership offers a wide range of services and programs to promote student leadership, encourage personal development, and provide social opportunities. Student leadership can be explored through participating in clubs and societies, working as an activities or sports assistant, volunteering as an Orientation Leader, or getting involved with the Student Government.
University is about much more than in-classroom studying. Our motto is ‘unity in diversity’ providing internationalism and the London experience. Belonging to a club or society, setting up an enterprise initiative, taking up a volunteer placement, or participating in a cultural trip builds well-rounded, mature and responsible individuals who go on to make a positive difference in the world.
Richmond Leadership Academy
Here at Richmond we believe in setting up our students with the best possible skill set when entering the world of business and industry. This is why dedicated staff of our Student Affairs has set up the Richmond Leadership Academy to allow students to gain opportunities and resources to aid in leadership development and employability.
Supporting on-campus student organizations
A wide range of student-run on-campus clubs and societies offer students unique opportunities to develop their skills and experience in preparation for life after Richmond. The Business Society, for example, encourages students to develop their business skills by introducing them to business modelling and enterprising companies around the world and the Green Project looks to impact the local community through hands-on volunteer work while student leaders from the International Affairs Society seek to develop greater international links. We will empower students to get inspired, involved, and learn skills that will stay with them for life.

Supporting special activities
We at Richmond believe that the out-of classroom experience is vital to developing well-rounded, thoughtful, and creative global citizens. We provide special annual events like International Night and Springfest, activities like educational trips across Europe and the United Kingdom, as well as a programme of volunteering opportunities in the wider community. These activities enrich the student experience, encourage commitment to the values the University hopes to engender in all of its students, and help students gain the skills and experience they need to start their careers and become global citizens.
“Richmond’s student experience has endless possibilities: from membership in on-campus student organizations, tutoring, mentoring, and volunteering in the local community to opportunities to take part in national conferences and international travel and field study. With diversity as our driving force and your support, the world is our classroom.”
