It’s not just about study, this is your story

Studying abroad

Whether you’re studying in another country, or studying here at the university in London, with Richmond University you have the opportunity to study abroad. That could mean trying out university in London for a semester to a year, studying overseas at any of our partner locations across the world, or taking part in a world internship – designed to give you the experience you need to complement your programme.


We offer career support and advice throughout your studies (through the Careers & Internships Office), doing everything we can to make sure you stand out from the crowd when you graduate. Just by taking part in a liberal arts degree, you’re learning a wealth of transferable skills, including learning to adapt to the working climate – essential criteria employers look for.
