My academic needs are fully meet within a collaborative, encouraging and friendly environment. The importance of education is addressed in well structured program, adequately chosen modules and engaging classes. I do recommend Regent College London and wishing growing success.
I have gained courage to speak to people and I have more confidence in myself. I received a lot of help from my teachers and it was really interesting meeting new people and making new friends. I’m happy that I came to Regent College London to study, it was the right place to come and I would definitely recommend it.
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 came to Regent College on Kingsbury with high goals. I became one of the students representative. The staff members from the reception and from the offices were absolutely punctual and receptive to all our problems. I would definitely recommend the course and encourage anyone interested in business to go forward and study a degree with Regent College London.
From the initial interview I was impressed by the welcoming atmosphere as well as by the professionalism with which each situation was handled, including the admission interview. During the courses I was guided by talented and devoted lectures who inspire and support me. I would recommend Regent College to anyone who wants to receive quality knowledge, teaching and support.
Excellent educational service with good customer service skills and great experience in student support management.
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.
It is wonderful to attend Regent College. Staff are very helpful. My lecturer was awesome. My personal situation was challenging and I wanted to give up on many occasions but the college made me realise that I shouldn’t give up. It’s more than just a college. Staff understand that each student has different personal circumstances. They encouraged me and gave me the strength to complete my degree. Honestly I couldn’t have passed the course without the support of the college. Amazing place to study. The vibe, energy is just what you need to focus and achieve your goals. I have landed a good job. Completing the course has opened up many doors for me and I recommend Regent College. It could change your life.
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.
I joined Regent college in 2018 to do a 4 year business management degree that included a foundation year. It is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. The staff are very kind and helpful, the teachers are professional and the facilities are excellent. I could not ask for more.
