Dena, from California, decided to study abroad at Richmond, The American International University in London. Studying in London is a fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons and meet new people from all over the World, while still learning within the liberal arts framework.
We wanted to give you a brief introduction to what life is like at Richmond, presented by Professor and Vice President of International Programs, Dominic Alessio.
“I had such a wonderful experience at Richmond University. The beautiful campus was close to all the London attractions. The professors work hard with you to succeed, and I made some incredible life-long friends there. I did not want to come home.”
“My overall evaluation for my time at Richmond can be described in one word: incredible. All of my professors were fantastic, they were engaged, knowledgeable, and overall just great professors.
I think the school was fair in its academic rigor. Nothing over the top, but nothing that was abundantly easy, either. The workload is manageable, and all of the professors I had explained everything to me and made me feel prepared for all that I had to do.
I think the program as a whole was fantastic.”
“Traveling abroad for my first semester definitely was not what I had expected to end up doing, but it was the best experience I could’ve ever asked for! The American International University at Richmond offered so many exciting opportunities for me.
Richmond’s classes were unique to other institutions due to their dual degree program, allowing students to receive both an American degree and a British degree. I made lifelong friends from Tulane and Richmond University, and I learned so much about myself and the world around me!”.
