Regent's University London has all the facilities one can dream of for a happy and productive student life. Set in the tranquil Regent's park surroundings, the university boasts a fantastic library, plenty of study space and access to splendid gardens, which are otherwise not accessible to the public, just squirrels, nature and you!

 

Origins of Regent’s University London (RUL)

 

Designed in 1811, Regent's Park spans over 410 acres and includes a lake, canal and a number of villas.

 

Famous Alumni and Students

 

The fellow students you’ll meet at Regent’s come from all over the world and are just as keen to study and form friendships as you. Teaching is in small groups which allows you to gain teamwork and leadership skills. Here you will build an exclusive network of future alumni who will one day occupy key roles in top organisations. To learn more about student achievements and famous alumni get some inspiration from the blog and Inner Circle magazine available online.

 

Kevin Korgba is from Nigeria and has studied at the European Business School (MSc Global banking & Finance, 2006) and Webster Graduate School, Regent’s University London (MBA, 2007). He runs his own company Enterprise, Training & Knowledge Group (ETK Group) UK which provides consultancy services and business education to African markets. Kevin says, “The emphasis of studies is on connecting theory to practical, real-life situations – most tutors have worked in respective sectors and are not just academics. We have a very active alumni community, thanks to the great work of David Whitaker and his team.”
