What our students say

Adrian Chohan

MSc International Management

It is a multicultural college in a diverse, friendly, and vibrant city, that suits everyone. The course is extremely interesting with exciting modules of ‘International marketing’ and ‘Business development’. The diversity of modules really broadened my thinking. The projects and assignments we are doing have taught me a lot about business as a whole – not just in theory, but also in practice. The lectures are engaging and intriguing, delivered by excellent lecturers, have made my journey, educational, informative and life changing.

The staff are extremely supportive and are always trying to improve the student experience. They work effectively, to maintain an extremely efficient support mechanism which expands on their great customer/student service excellence. I strongly recommend Regent to future alumni and any of my immediate family who decide to return to academia.

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.
