Richmond American International University in London is an American university based in London at the campuses of Richmond Hill and Kensington High Street.

The US degrees awarded by Richmond are accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. In August 2018 the university was granted the authorisation by the UK government to also award British degrees. It is the first and only university in the UK with the power to grant ‘double’ degrees, i.e. its students receive both a British and US degree; thus, giving them the opportunity to distinguish themselves within the job market.

It is acclaimed for its academic standards and its approach to teaching which combined the high quality of British education with the US education system, whereby students can choose to study various subjects while majoring in one specific academic field. In addition to the above, the university offers scholarships and many programmes have internship opportunities both in the UK and abroad.

The Richmond Hill campus hosts first and second-year students and it includes the library, teaching facilities, laboratories and accommodation. There are sport facilities for tennis, volleyball and football and many more. After the completion of the second year, students continue their studies at Kensington campus in central London.

First and second-year students attend our Richmond Hill campus. The campus is set in a splendid six-acre site at the top of Richmond Hill, one of London’s most sought-after areas.

An impressive neo-Gothic building constructed in 1843 and a modern five-level library, house classrooms, computer and science laboratories, art and photography studios and an auditorium.

The campus also accommodates student residences, a dining hall, student common room, and faculty and administrative offices. There is also a multipurpose sports court of tennis, volleyball, basketball and mini-soccer (football).

After completing two years at our Richmond Hill campus, students move to our campus in the London borough of Kensington for their last two years of study.


Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
