External Validation

At Regent College London, we are proud to have our courses and teaching validating by highly regarded organisations such as QAA, Pearson and NSS. We work to our upmost best to provide students with high quality teaching and to be recognised for our efforts is a great honour.

NSS (The National Student Survey 2022)

The National Student Survey (NSS) 2022, carried out by Texunatech on behalf of the Office for Students, surveyed some 4.5 million students in the UK about their experiences in higher education. Respondents were asked for their views on a wide range of aspects during their studies including the level of teaching received, learning opportunities and resources, academic support, the university community, and available representation.

Regent College London achieved an Overall Satisfaction score of some 93%, placing the College in the top tier of higher education providers surveyed. We also exceeded the sector-wide score across all topics surveyed.

The Office for Students is an independent regulator of higher education in England. Visit its website for more information on its work to ensure students succeed and have a fulfilling experience of higher education in the UK.



Pearson, is a well-known and well respected operator in the education sector. Its BTEC qualifications provide a more practical, real-world approach to learning and skills development alongside a key theoretical background in comparison with traditional academic qualifications. Regent College London is currently operating the Higher National Diploma (HND) in Business with a number of specialised pathways.

The College is currently inspected by Pearson twice per year, once via Academic Management Review (AMR), and once via the Standards Verification (SV) process.

Quality Assurance Agency (QAA)

The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) works to safeguard quality and standards in UK universities and colleges, so that students have the best possible learning experience. QAA conducts reviews of institutions and publishes reports detailing the findings. At present the QAA only inspects where requested to do so by the Office for Students.

However, previous to 2019, the QAA inspected all providers and as an ‘alternative provider’ within the higher education sector, the College was subject to QAA’s Higher Education Review (Alternative Providers) (HER (AP)) process which was designed for institutions which provide higher education in collaboration with an awarding body.

Regent College London underwent a full review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) in September 2016. Please click here to read the final report.

Regent College London then underwent a monitoring visit in 2017 from which it received a Commendable outcome. The report is available here. It submitted an annual return in September 2018 that demonstrated that it was continuing to maintain academic standards and enhance the quality of student learning opportunities and information about learning opportunities.
