FAQs for students returning to campus
- How will I learn in the new academic year? Read
We offer a full range of study options to suit everyone. When you start the new academic year, you will be back interacting face-to-face with your teachers, students and support staff either in person, online while you are on campus yourself, or through on-demand learning.
It all depends on the type of course you choose, with its specific requirements, your student status with the Student Loans Company (SLC) or if you are an international student and the requirements of your visa.
If in doubt, please contact a member of our Student Services team straight away, with your student ID on hand, and they will be able to provide you all the help you need.
- How are the courses delivered? Read
The delivery method of your course depends on several factors. Our courses are designed to be as flexible as possible, allowing you to study anywhere, any time. Our core delivery options are available across PC, laptop and mobile devices and are referred to as: In-person, Online and On-demand.
You may also have opted for a combination of these, if your SLC funding allows you to study on campus. This might be studying here in-person with a mix of online lectures in real time and on-demand learning through Regent Digital Services. However you want to study at RCL, we’ll do everything we can to make that happen.
