Our History and Vision

Our History

Regent College London have a rich and successful history within education. Regent College London is a part of Regent Group, an education, training and investment management business that was developed by the Pankaj family in 2000. Regent Group has gone from strength to strength over the many years and established Regent College London in 2010. The college was initially delivering BTEC Higher National Diplomas and providing students with alternative progression routes into Higher Education.

In 2013 we opened admissions to the public to reflect our commitment to widening access and participation. Since then we have been delivering a range of HND business programmes, validated by Pearson. We have expanded our Higher Education provision, working with four university partners to deliver Foundation year routes, Foundation degrees, Bachelor’s degrees, Top-up degrees and Master’s degrees in a range of subjects.

Our “family business” has grown at a rapid pace and now includes a range of educational institutions and businesses. Regent College London has been at the forefront of our success as we help many students achieve lifelong goals and aspirations. We started with our very first college in Wembley, which has gone onto becoming our biggest campus location, home to over a 1000 students! Since 2010, we have developed college campus locations in Kingsbury, Central London, Harrow and of course, Wembley.

As a college, we have achieved many goals such as a positive outcome for QAA Higher Education Review, excellent results in National Student Survey, opened 5 campus locations across London and of course, helped many students achieve their goals and aspirations. We will continue to thrive and provide the upmost best to our students!


Our Vision

Our vision is to be the UK’s first truly technology enabled British university, a global brand and a global campus from 2025 to 2030.

From our campus locations, and globally via our Regent Digital, we will provide learners with an outstanding education and student experience underpinned by the philosophy of Napoleon Hill and Andrew Carnegie, characterised by compact campuses, small classes and individualised support.
