What our students say
I thoroughly enjoy being a student at Regent College. As a mature student, I know that this is the right place for me because I have received immense and timely support from the day I made contact with the college and this has continued throughout. The college does not only focus on the student’s academic success but also provides services to ensure your mental well-being is not compromised. The lectures are interactive and you’re encouraged to take leadership for your own learning. Since joining Regent I can see a huge difference in my approach to learning and that’s given me confidence. There has been huge support since we moved to virtual lectures. The lecturers are constantly reminding students that they can be contacted by email or on MS Teams if we need any support with any aspect of our degree.
Regent College London is the best college in London because since I started studying there I can see they have the best teachers. The teaching is good and helpful and they are also really organised. If you have any problem in the college, the Student Services team is always is there to help you. For me, I think Regent College London is the best College in London.
My overall experience has been fantastic! I’ve made a great group of friends. My class size is small and we have a laugh with the tutors. The lessons are completely related to the job you want to do, and the course has made me rethink on what career I want because it leads you to many high paying jobs! I’ve learnt laws, legislation and skills that will benefit me in my career and its only my first year here! During the coronavirus, teaching has continued and tutors have been in regular contact to make sure I’m OK and to check if I need help. They’ve even worked out of hours to provide one to one support to get me through assignments! They’ve really gone above and beyond!
I will strongly recommend Regent College as they have shown me how to be confident in myself and also taught me how to achieve my aims and goals in my chosen career.
A very friendly and helpful college. Been an extremely pleasureful experience with welcoming and friendly staff and qualified patient and very supportive tutors. Infact the whole experience is being one of feeling of belonging to a family. Being an old person with disability, the encouragement and support I received leaves me overwhelmed with gratitude. I have no qualms to sincerely recommend students to choose Regents College as their first choice of their educational endeavours.
I really love the teachers, they take the extra time and effort to help me. The college helps me to keep my dreams alive. It is a warm place where i feel very comfortable. The environment is really supportive. And most importantly, the teachers made me realise that to achieve something one requires vision, self-motivation, determination and hard work.
I have received all the support that I needed as a student. I received prompt answers to all the questions I had. Great staff. I will highly recommend Regent College. The Director of Studies i in Harrow is very friendly, always smiling and supportive. Also the receptionist is very friendly and helped me every single time I need support.
The lecturers are very professional in carrying out their duties and they are very helpful and patient with the students regardless of their bad behaviour. I strongly recommend Regent College London as college to pursue higher education. The knowledge that I gained from learning at Regent College after attending classes for just two months is more than what I learned at another college where I was for two years.
It is my first year at Regent college studying a degree in Health and Social Care. The teaching is excellent and the environment is so clean which makes it a better place to study. I honestly like the staff because they are so polite. I am so lucky to studying here honestly.
