Financial Assistance for Students

Regent College London is very much aware that undertaking a higher education qualification comes with a number of costs associated and that concerns around solvency can lead to applicants being dissuaded from pursuing a course, or students disengaging with, or even abandoning their course.

In order to minimise such scenarios and to improve access, continuation, achievement and progression within the student body, the College operates a number of schemes in line with its Access and Participation Plan  to offer financial assistance to students in addition to that which they receive from their maintenance loans from Student Finance England.

These include the following:

The Care Leaver Bursary
