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.

Bela Bogacs

BSc (Hons) Business Management with Foundation Year

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.

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.

Csilla Raduly

HND

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.

HND

My name is Catalina Hutupasu and I was one of your students in my first year at Regent College London in 2015. I am now studying Top Up Year as I took one year gap to welcome my first baby. I would like to take this opportunity and thank you for all your help and guidance as I have finished in 2017 and have a MERIT on my HND Diploma. My very good impressions on the College,the professors at that time and my colleagues (Denisia, Andreea etc) made me convince my husband to enrol for the same course. He (Tamaru Hutupasu) is now finishing his second year.
