If you’re looking for an opportunity to study in a culturally diverse atmosphere, where you will get an amazing and rich educational experience, then Richmond is the place for you.
I graduated from Richmond in 2003 with a BA in Communications. While studying for my degree, Richmond also offered an internship program in which I was able to participate in. This internship helped pave the way for me to start interviewing with a portfolio for my first job right out of University.
My time at Richmond allowed me to become more confident as a student. Likewise, my teachers in my communications classes were so knowledgeable that I actually looked forward to job hunting without any anxiety. Dr. Will Brooker was one of my professors who made learning infectious.
Reflecting on my experience at Richmond, I would advise students to take time to intern and intern for a while. Really find your groove and try out what you think you want to do. Aim to have a portfolio together before you graduate and be confident in the work that you put into it. It’s the easiest way to land a job right after graduation and shows employers that you are serious about your craft and working for them.
Richmond is a wonderful experience!
