My name is Catalina Hutupasu and I was one of your students in my first year at Regent College London in 2015. I am now studying Top Up Year as I took one year gap to welcome my first baby. I would like to take this opportunity and thank you for all your help and guidance as I have finished in 2017 and have a MERIT on my HND Diploma. My very good impressions on the College,the professors at that time and my colleagues (Denisia, Andreea etc) made me convince my husband to enrol for the same course. He (Tamaru Hutupasu) is now finishing his second year.
My name is Angelica Mihaela Dragomir and I study HND in Business. I also work as a child carer as well as being a full-time mother to my daughter.

Regent College has allowed me to get closer to achieving my goals by improving my IT/English skills and the college has also allowed me to broaden my thinking to see the bigger picture. Lastly, my confidence has been uplifted and I feel that I can undertake any challenge.
I am really happy with my education at Regent College London and from the professional help of the people who work there. This education opened my mind to see the world in a different way. I will continue to study in order to take bachelor degree and then a masters in the business. I would like to become a business consultant.
My name is Stefka Zamfirova and I completed the HND in Business Level 5 in Regent College London. I enjoyed my study and these two years from January 2014 to December 2015 have become unique and unforgettable memories when I think of it. My lecturers were great and helpful. I can positively say that studying at Regent College London helped me to develop my knowledge, to discover more about myself and to make more friends. The college increased my personal confidence before starting my university life.
Thank you for all the support given while I studied here and honestly you helped me raise my wings and fly. Some of the staff encouraged me to continue my studies even though I was pregnant and dreaming only at a family life for the next years. They encouraged me and I followed their advice even if I felt unsecure and incapable to manage my time between studies and university. Moreover, this year I will graduate from university and I’m planning to continue my studies with a train to teach scheme. I am grateful that I trusted you and all the team to guide me for a brighter future.
