What our students say

Patience Prosper

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.

Robert Masasa

BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care with Foundation Year (UOB)

Regent College London is the best college in London because since I started studying there I can see they have the best teachers. The teaching is good and helpful and they are also really organised. If you have any problem in the college, the Student Services team is always is there to help you. For me, I think Regent College London is the best College in London.

Radostina Todorova Dimitrova

BA (Hons) Business Management

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!

Shirley Edokpolor

BSc (Hons) in Health and Social Care with Foundation Year (UOB)

I will strongly recommend Regent College as they have shown me how to be confident in myself and also taught me how to achieve my aims and goals in my chosen career.

Prakash Mandalia

BA (Hons) Business Management (Top-up)

A very friendly and helpful college. Been an extremely pleasable experience with welcoming and friendly staff and qualified patient and very supportive tutors. In fact the whole experience is being one of feeling of belonging to a family. Being an old person with disability, the encouragement and support I received leaves me overwhelmed with gratitude. I have no qualms to sincerely recommend students to choose Regents College as their first choice of their educational endeavours.

Rashed Haider

BEng (Hons) Software Engineering with Foundation Year

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.

Abdirahman Farah

I choose Regent College to study because it was recommended to me by a friend, who attends here. Enrolling and starting studying went very smoothly. I am very happy I got the chance to take the HND Business class, as my plan for the future is to run my own business. I am looking forward to making the best of this class and continue my studies to get my Bachelors Degree. Regent College offers great teachers, kind and polite. It also brought new friends, which I am grateful for.

I am currently studying International Business Management Top Up at London Metropolitan University. I am very grateful to Regent College London. If it wasn’t for Regent who accepted me to complete my 3 modules, I do not know what I would have done. I had gone to another college in Alperton but they wanted me to restart HND in Business all over again from the beginning. All they wanted was money and they did not care about me completing just the 3 modules. Regent College is one of the best colleges in London. They care about the students so much. I did not know there was such a college in Wembley. From the receptionist to the lecturers and Directors everyone was helpful. Well done and keep it up.

Ralitsa Racheva

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.
