Richmond is an American International University, established in 1972 and based in West London with two campuses in Richmond Hill and close to Kensington High Street. Since 1981, the university has been awarding US Degrees accredited by The Middle States Commission on Higher Education. One of the latest achievement that Richmond is proud to announce, is being granted the power to award students with its own UK degrees starting from August 2018, as a consequence of having been recently granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP) by the Privy Council.
The university is the first and the only university in the UK that has been granted the power to award dual taught degrees, which mean students will receive a UK and US degree that will impact enormously our graduates while looking for employment opportunities and make them stand out from the crowd.
Richmond was originally an American College, founded by the social entrepreneur and politician Sir Cyril Taylor, chairman of the American Institute For Foreign Study (AIFS) and has been used as the London base for the US study abroad programme.
Since its opening in 1978, the Kensington campus buildings on St Albans Grove and Ansdell Street accommodate the third and fourth year undergraduate students as well as all postgraduate students. In March 1988 Kensington campus saw a further expansion on Young Street, that was officially opened by Diana, Princess of Wales, and attracted a number of high-profile students including royals and members of most influent families.
