What our students say
The programme is truly amazing, providing a flexible schedule. Majority of the students in my group are between 25-45 years, so it is never too late to do a degree especially when the University is motivating and supporting students to pursue their education, no matter the age or background.
At the moment I haven’t had the chance to go to campus. Due to the pandemic, courses are online. Students engage in the lessons and share ideas and comments virtually, we already feel that we’ve met.
The lessons are very effective. The teachers are professionals with a friendly approach, and have a positive impact on our development. Plus we never get bored on Seminars, really engaging, different topics challenge our mind and boost our confidence. Personally, I’ve grown a lot and developed various skills and improved my English since I’ve started studying at Bolton University. Only positive thoughts.
With eye opening modules and challenging assignments, the course cannot get any more exciting. Floating through Business & Management foundation year, I developed an addiction to knowledge and a lust to proficiency. Thanks to the amazing lessons undertaken by the extremely professional and resourceful lecturers, I was able to discover a passion in Business. With an inclusive reputation the College offers everyone a variety of opportunities to be part in different societies available.
During Covid the staff were enormously supportive, making sure we did not suffer the absence of physical classes by providing entertaining online classes as well as working closely with the pupil to ensure a maximum learning experience. I highly recommend Regent College to anyone seeking to return to education.
Regent College for me is the Temple of Mind. It is my contract for my future. Regent is a family, where you belong, you feel supported, respected, appreciated, valued. Your opinion matters and you are listened to. It gives you the tools to prepare and be ready to climb the HILL, to create and elevate to achieve your goals and dreams.
Regent College London has this amazing partnership with the Bucks New University, providing you opportunities for your future. It is a very nice environment with lovely students and lovely staff, always happy and ready to help you improve your academic journey. They will give you support and assistance whenever you are in need. I would definitely recommend this institute, if someone is looking for a bachelor degree education. You will feel accepted and supported in this college.
My academic needs are fully met 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.
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 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.
The great thing about Regent College London is its campus location in central London. The newly refurbished campus is well equipped with state of the art technology. Our teachers did an awesome job during the COVID-19 pandemic by keeping the class running flawlessly through digital lessons.
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 teach and explain modules in the best way possible so that students can understand. The recruitment staff are very nice and very helpful every time you have a problem. Quick problem solving and efficient service from the start to the end at Regent College London.
I would recommend the college because of the professionalism shown by the tutors and the attention they give to us students, so that we can progress. They are also very friendly and when we don’t understand something they spend time to explain the concepts to us properly.
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.
