Regent's University London, United Kingdom

Description

London is exciting, culturally and ethnically diverse and a great place to study. With a population of around 8.5 million, it is the most populous city in the EU and has attracted different nationalities, cultures and religions for centuries.

The university

The private Regent's University London has been associated with the EBC Hochschule since 2008. It has a beautiful campus in the heart of London in Regent's Park. The university is made up of several schools. EBC students can study at Regent’s Business School London, the School of Fashion and Design and the European Business School London; an ERASMUS scholarship is available for all 3 schools.

Similar to the EBC Hochschule, the classes are small and the contact to the lecturers is close. Although private, Regent's follows the British academic tradition: Bachelor students choose only four to five courses, but the amount of work per course is considerable. Enjoy this intensive work! So far, all EBC students at Regent's have been completely satisfied and have usually achieved good to very good grades.

The student community is truly international: over 140 nationalities are represented on the campus. The university appreciates this wealth of different experiences and supports the dialogue between the cultures of its students. Immerse yourself in this diversity and use every opportunity to make connections.

History of the university
Regent's University has an impressive history. Founded in 1983 as the London campus for Study Abroad programs of Rockford College, Illinois, it initially had exclusively American students. Over the years, other institutions were added: the European Business School London moved in 1987, the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology was founded in 1990; other American universities also founded their own institutions, such as the Webster Graduate School and British American College London (today: Regent's American College London) of Webster University in 1994. Under the name "Regent's College", the seven schools became an interdisciplinary university that is recognized worldwide.
In autumn 2013 Regent's College was finally recognised as a university and has been Regent's University London ever since.

Language of education:

English

Assessment

Contrary to Germany, the final thesis is less important. Most important are active participation in class, preparation of the reading lists (!) and the given homework; very often you work on presentations and essays. The courses usually end with a written exam. Details will be discussed in the first session of your course.

Courses

You can choose any bachelor course of the school you attend, preferably the second and third level, the last being very demanding. Courses are given on a "first come, first serve" basis, but international students will almost always get the courses they specified in their application.

Most courses take place two to three times a week for 105 minutes (double periods) or 50 minutes (single periods) between between 9 am and 5 pm. All students receive an individual timetable.

Attendance
Many British universities have a close-knit control network to control attendance, including Regent's. Be sure to comply with the 80% attendance requirement and contact your lecturer. If you do not register with your chip card at the beginning of the lesson, the system will report this to the Registry Office. Clarify this with the Registry Office as quickly as possible.

If you miss a lesson without an excuse or if you are registered as missing (even if you were late), you will receive a warning by e-mail that you will not be able to complete the course successfully during your next absence. The IPO and the EBC University will also be informed. If you miss a second time, you will be excluded from the course and will not be able to complete the module.

English Courses
It is assumed at Regent's that you have a sufficient command of English if you have decided to study in Great Britain. If you feel that you are not prepared after all, there are evening courses for a fee.

Finances

Studying at Regent´s University London is possible within the framework of an ERASMUS exchange or directly against payment of tuition fees to the university.

ERASMUS students
We have an ERASMUS partnership with this university. You can apply for an ERASMUS place (Attention - the number of ERASMUS places is limited).

For the participation in the ERASMUS program, an administration fee of 750,-€ is due. In this case, no further tuition fees will be charged at the ERASMUS university in which the student is enrolled.

Tuition fees
Tuition fees amount to around £6,800 (around €7,568) - this already includes a discount for EBC students.

Cost of living
London is one of the most expensive cities in the world, but was recently voted the most cost efficient city in the UK; the website "Studying London" has collected a few tips . Of course, it all depends on what your requirements or standards are, but to be on the safe side, expect to pay £1,000 per month including housing costs.

A few tips from us if you want to budget:

  • Use the Oyster Card if you will be travelling mainly by public transport; preferably apply for it two weeks before you start your studies or before you arrive in London, because the applications take so long to process.
  • The brave will buy a (second-hand) bicycle, a bicycle helmet and a yellow signal vest, and then jump into left-hand traffic; London is to be converted into a bicycle city and there are more and more cycle paths (London Cycling Campaign); use side streets and get to know London off the main roads, so to speak.
  • Cook for yourself. There is a huge range of take-away and ready-made options, but if you cook yourself, it's still the cheapest in the long run. You can also trust British cuisine, there are great cookbooks such as Gordon Ramsey or Valentine Warner, or check out the BBC food website.
  • Far cheaper than supermarkets are the Farmer's Markets.
  • Use a prepaid card to make phone calls.
  • Culture in London is sometimes surprisingly cheap, e.g. Tate Britain is free (except special exhibitions), and students get attractive discounts almost everywhere.
  • If you want to see England's famous castles, gardens and sights, you can buy membership in English Heritage and get discounts or even free admission to places like Stonehenge or Hadrians Wall in the north of England.

Recognition

Course choice and learning agreement

Discuss your selection with the International Office and enter the discussed options in the Choice Form module. The Regent's expects at least four courses from you and tries to register you for your favorite courses. 

The International Office will sign the form and accept it as a "provisional Learning Agreement"; for the time being, only because we know that changes may occur once you have started studying at Regent's. The Regent's will not accept your application until you have completed the form. In most cases, however, changes of course are not necessary and are hardly possible on the part of the regent. Should they still be necessary, please discuss them with the International Office as soon as possible; there are usually no problems.
If the courses are fixed, we need a final learning agreement with the courses you want to attend and have recognized. You submit this within the first 14 days after the beginning of the lecture period at the Regent's to us by e-mail or post.

Performance Record and Transcript of Records
About four weeks after the exams the results will be published and Regent's will send you and the EBC Hochschule a "Transcript of Records". If the Transcript of Records is available to the International Office and you have successfully completed the agreed modules worth at least 20 ECTS, the average of your performance will be converted according to the modified Bavarian formula and communicated to the Examination Office. The grade will be included in your overall grade.

Score table
At Regent's and most universities in the UK the rating is as shown below (in percentage):

  • 70 ≤ = First Class (exceptionally high standard of work, awarded very rarely)
  • 60 - 69 = Upper Second Class (very good and above average work with minor mistakes)
  • 50 - 59 = Lower Second Class (overall good, but faulty)
  • 40 - 49 = Third Class (satisfactory work that meets the standards)
  • ≥ 40 = Fail (not passed)

Conversion
Your scores will be converted into the German grading system according to the so-called "Modified Bavarian Formula" and entered into your performance record as scores. The courses you have taken at Regent's are not recorded separately.

Visa

The following information is subject to change, as visa requirements may change. Before applying for a visa, be sure to visit the website of the responsible embassy and inform yourself about the exact and current conditions!

EU/EEA citizens do not need a visa to enter the UK. It is nevertheless advisable to carry the Acceptance Letter of Regent's University with you when entering the UK.

Important: Non-EU citizens must make sure in time that they are allowed to enter the UK at all!

Depending on how long your stay in the UK lasts, you will need a specific visa.

Students who want to stay up to 6 months must apply for a Student Visitor Visa (you are not allowed to work in the UK!). Students who wish to stay longer must apply for a TIER 4 visa!  

Here on Gov.uk you can apply for a visa (click through the stations).

Living

Regent's University offers three options: three dormitories on campus, two dormitories within walking distance and help finding private rooms or other dormitories in London.

Residence places in London are highly popular and quickly available. If you want to live "on campus", you should submit your application as early as possible, as some rooms are booked out many months in advance. The Accommodation Office will be happy to help you find suitable accommodation.

Important to know: The rent for private rooms or apartments is charged weekly. Rent for dormitories is usually paid in one or two installments.

Liberty living
The accommodations are modern, well furnished and affordable. There is a private bathroom and a kitchenette where you can cook. The apartments are centrally located so you can easily reach everything from there. The special thing about Liberty Living is that you can plan short and long stays. The minimum length of stay is one week. In addition, there are great offers of versatile apartments for every budget. Apartments start at around £30 per day.

Liberty Living is not only available in London, but in many other cities in the UK. More information can be found on the website.
