Richmond, the American International University in London, is an independent non-profit international university of liberal arts and professional studies. Incorporated in the District of Columbia, it is licensed to award degrees, accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and in the UK in partnership with the Open University through the Quality Assurance Agency (UK). The Florence Study Center emphasizes studio and fine arts and the Italian language and culture. It also offers courses in history, sociology, political science, business and history of opera. Volunteer work projects are also offered as part of the cultural program aimed at integrating students into the local community. Starting Spring 2010 a new Internship Program has been developed in response to the need of International Education to better equip students facing the challenge of global demands.
