More about this course
Richmond offers all students the opportunity to take a nine week, full-time work placement (subject to grade and reference requirements being met) for which academic credit will be awarded. During the internship students learn to apply theoretical knowledge
in the workplace. In an increasingly competitive graduate careers market, practical experience is an invaluable addition to classroom learning, and can help you get that first foot onto the career ladder. Richmond students also have the opportunity to complete
a portion of their studies overseas at a partner University. This gives students the chance to live and study in another country whilst broadening their cultural and academic horizons. We currently have partner institutions in Europe and North America. We
also have international study centres in Florence and Rome.
We offer 4-year Liberal Arts and Business BA degrees. The interdisciplinary Liberal Arts approach offers not just breadth but also depth of study and encourages students to make sounds judgements and think independently. A Liberal Arts education is one
which encourages you to explore a wide range of subjects and programmes. It reaches across disciplines, building connections between different academic areas such as literature, science, mathematics, writing, business and psychology. Upon entry to Richmond
University all students study the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum before specialising in their chosen field. Students entering with A levels or other level 3 qualifications can gain exemptions from some courses in the Richmond Core Curriculum which can mean that
you should be able to complete your degree in less than four academic years.
