What our students say
“The classes were well structured and engaging. The instructors were all highly intelligent and approachable. I am extremely happy with the classes I took and learned a lot from the content.”
“My time in Richmond was one of the best times of my life, not only because of its location but also because I’ve had the best teachers in my entire university degree. I can also say that you will find friends for life, and that there is always something to do in London!”
“I would recommend the programme to other students. It has been the opportunity of a lifetime, gaining independence, accelerating personal growth and meeting people from various parts of the world. I absolutely loved my time here.”
“The programme was academically and professionally demanding but not in such a way that I was not able to enjoy being in London.”
“Really fun and a good way to adapt to American college life and make international friends”
