You Asked, We Answered: API Student Outreach Team

API's Student Outreach Team

If you’ve contacted us before, there’s a good chance you’ve spoken to someone on API’s Student Outreach Team! We manage the chat box on our website (see that little chat box in the lower right corner? That’s us!). We also host weekly office hours and respond to you when you submit this form to get in touch with us. Every week, we get asked hundreds of questions about API and the experiences abroad that we offer. Here are this month’s top questions and trends! 


How long does it take to be accepted?

We review applications on a rolling basis, so our staff reviews your application materials when they arrive, and then follow up with you regarding your application status. We typically take 3-5 business days to review applications! 

What are my housing options?

API offers 4 different types of housing: dorms, student apartments, host families, and residencias. Each program offers different housing options, which you’ll find under the housing section at the bottom of each program page (here’s an example). Bonus tip: Check out our Meals & Housing resource for a quick location-specific overview!

Where can I find courses?

You can find courses in our Class Finder with a brief description of the course and the syllabus. This tool allows students to look through the different courses offered by various programs. If you’re looking for a syllabus but don’t see it in the Class Finder, reach out to us! We can help you find what you’re looking for.


There’s quite the buzz about our MBA at Richmond American University London program. Did you know that students who complete this program can graduate with both a US and UK degree as Richmond, the American University in London was the first university to be accredited in both the UK and the US? 

And the most exciting part? After graduation, students have the opportunity to apply  for a two-year post-study work visa in the UK! That’s right, after graduation, you could live and work in the UK!


If you didn’t see your question answered, reach out to us and let us know. Other students likely have the same questions you do, and we’re happy to share the answer. Check back monthly to learn more about API, our programs, or studying abroad in general!

If you need a quick response, you can use the chat feature on our website, or you can speak to someone during our Office Hours (no appointments necessary)! If you’re looking for more program or application information, make sure to fill out this form to contact API’s Student Outreach Team, or reach out to us at: [email protected].
