What’s it like being a mature student at RCL? 

Whether it’s a full-time job or childcare responsibilities, we know that sometimes factors outside our control can get in the way of pursuing your education. But a busy lifestyle shouldn’t get in the way of your dream job! Here at RCL, we welcome and encourage mature students to pursue higher education, allowing you to achieve all the career dreams that you used to have!


How will I fit in as a mature student?

Whether you are 19 or 49, our range of students is so dynamic that you will never feel “out of place” or too “old” to get involved with learning. With students joining us from a vast range of different countries, nationalities, and ages, the diversity here at RCL makes it such a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Not only will it be a pleasant experience to make friends, but you will also learn new things from alternative cultures, generations and backgrounds.


Is it easy to fit learning into my busy lifestyle?

Trying to prioritise learning can be a squeeze when you already have day-to-day commitments. That’s why Regent offers flexible, hassle-free timetables that are explicitly designed for people like yourself. Whether you have a job, family or personal priorities, putting your education first with evening classes, weekend classes, and online classes has never been more accessible.


How convenient will it be to study at RCL?

We know that long travel commitments can decide whether you pursue education again. But here at Regent, all our five campuses are designed to be incredibly convenient to study at. Spread out across London, each campus has an excellent locality, with either a tube or bus station within a 5-minute walking distance. With speedy Wi-Fi and facilities throughout, it has never been easier to study at one of our fantastic locations.
