For those students who require a visa to study in the UK, Regent’s College has new sponsorship powers and their students will now be able to work whilst studying.
The Privy Council has granted Regent’s College London Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP), giving it the right to accredit its own degrees from 1 September 2012.
Awarded by the UK Government, this achievement confirms their first class student experience and the commitment of staff, engagement of students and the success of alumni.
Minister for Universities and Science, David Willetts, said, “The Government is keen to encourage greater competition and choice in higher education provision in order to better respond to student demand. I am therefore pleased that another alternative provider, Regent’s College, has met the rigorous standards required of institutions who apply for the power to award degrees.”
This award confirms the College’s place in the same group as all other UK universities in terms of academic quality, facilities and student experience – they plan to change their name to Regent’s University London in the near future.
Gaining degree awarding powers forms part of the College’s long-term vision to become the leading private non-profit university in Europe.
Regent’s College is a registered charity with a mission to deliver high quality education and a commitment to reinvest in higher education. The College offers 40 financial assistance bursaries and merit scholarships to students each year.
Over the past 5 years, the College has invested £40 million in facilities and teaching to enable academics to spend more time with students in lectures, tutorials and individual feedback sessions.
As a result, the student-staff ratio at Regent’s is 15:1 and students receive 20 hours of contact time a week, both metrics ahead of the national average. Tutorial style education in groups of 25 instead of large scale lectures is at the heart of the delivery system.
Regent’s has a strong commitment to internationalism, teaching nine languages which can be combined with business education.
The College has also built strong links with industry, with 50% of students taking up internships as part of their degrees, and 90% of those seeking work finding graduate level employment within six months.
