What our students say

Rodica Alexandra Mortici

BSc (Hons) Computing

I really enjoy the classes that I am part of. The lecturers are very friendly and helpful with every matter . Due to the pandemic I did not have the opportunity to be on campus but I am so excited for next year. I have friends studying in other Universities and I know their experience is not so pleasant as mine. At Regent College lecturers try their best to make everything understandable during online classes. I recommend Regent College to everyone who wants to learn in a peaceful manner and friendly environment. I already recommended to one of my friends and I hope she will join.

Faizul Kabir

BSc (Hons) Computing with Foundation Year

I enjoy every bit. Great atmosphere, latest technologies, dedicated SSO/ASO assigned in our learning journey at Regent College. They treat us as a family. Believe in “by the student and for the student”. Student of the month program. Students are involved with senior management, academic team, and student support team.

Regent College helps me in every step of my learning journey. Every day I feel closer to my educational and career dreams. Regent Digital helps me connect to the career world and Scope sessions / Learning Zone to improve my academic learning.

I enjoy the assignment tutorial, support from SSO/ASO and the academic team the most. We are involved in a conversation with the Principal every Tuesday, the best thing I have come across. Our lectures notes and slides are easy to understand. In-class hands-on training and additional reference links make our lecturers top notch. They offer unconditional support and go the extra mile to motivate me.

I recommend Regent College. Regent is helping me to develop and taking me towards my education and career dreams. If I can do it, why not my friends and family. I am optimistic Regent college will help them the way they helped me and continue to help me.

Andreea Tohatan

BSc (Hons) Computing

Regent College was recommended to me by family members that graduated from Regent a few years ago. It is a great place to study that offers an excellent experience to the students. Lecturers are happy to help and give their support whenever possible. The Student Services team will deal and help with different problems and issues that you come across. At Regent College, you have the opportunity to attend a meeting with the Principal and raise any questions or concerns that you have, join the weekly Mindful Workshop and also a Drop-In session with the Head of the Department. I would recommend Regent College to everyone who wants to achieve their learning and career journey.

BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care (UOB)

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.
