Introduction

The variety of our courses, the way we teach, the international mix of students and our beautiful location in Regent's Park in the heart of London all contribute to making study at Regent's University a special experience.

Our mission is to focus on professionalism, internationalism and the development of our students as global citizens who have the skills and experience needed to sustain exciting, rewarding and valuable careers in their chosen fields.

All my colleagues are dedicated to ensuring that our students enjoy their time at Regent's and reach the objectives that they have set themselves.

Our graduates are in high demand and attract average salaries substantially above the norm. Our alumni now occupy key roles in a wide variety of business, commercial, media, governmental and public service organisations.

Many have gone on to become successful entrepreneurs or leading professionals and often return to the University to share their experience with current students.

Our campus is set in beautiful gardens inside Regent's Park, close to the City of London, the West End theatre district, London's excellent galleries and museums and major sporting and entertainment venues.

The campus is well equipped with the latest in learning resources and exciting plans have been approved for further developments in the years ahead.

Whilst our campus is impressive, it is our body of international students and staff and our global partnerships that lift the experience of study at Regent's above other universities.

There are more than 140 nationalities on campus and we teach nine different languages. This is a place where students can gain real knowledge and experience of other cultures alongside the specific qualifications that they have chosen.

We have more than 160 partner institutions around the world from Europe to Asia, from Africa to Australia and the Americas to the Middle East. Many of our students spend time at these locations as part of their degree or elect to do so out of interest.

We work with each of our students individually to help them select the right programme and to ensure that they receive all the support they need.

I hope that you will contact us to find out which of our programmes would be best for you and that I will soon welcome you as one of the Regent's community.
