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.

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.

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.

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.
