As UCAS Clearing begins, our students share why they chose to study at Regent’s University London.
Regent’s University London attracts students from all over the world and accepts applications all year round - so it's not too late to apply to study this September. Find out more.
An increasing number of students are applying through the UK’s UCAS Clearing system including Simran Shokar, aged 19, from Essex, who applied last year. She had planned to study film production at another University, but changed her mind at the last minute.
“On the day that I received my A level results, I suddenly got cold feet and felt that this was what I wanted to do,” said Simran.
“I realised that what I really wanted to do was write. I heard about Regent’s and arranged to have an interview to study Screenwriting and Producing. I knew immediately after this interview that this was what I wanted to study and where I wanted to be – Regent’s!”
Simran contacted the University during Clearing and was given an interview by world acclaimed screenwriter David Hanson who is the Regent’s Head of Drama, Film and Media.
“David was a really motivating person to meet and he treated me like an individual person rather than a number – he really understood who I am. He talked about the University’s links with film and television industry and that really made me want to study here. I immediately felt comfortable and looked after.”
"I am really happy here. The tutors on the course are fantastic. Phil Hughes is exceptional and has encouraged me to develop my creativity. Tristan Tull has made me feel comfortable with other students and helped me to get involved."
Asked for her advice for students receiving their A level results on Thursday, Simran replied: “When you get your results, go with your heart - not what it says on paper. If you feel you’ve made the wrong decision then trust your instincts and don’t look back.”
Simran is definitely not alone in loving this unique, independent university with a beautiful campus located in the heart of London in royal Regent’s Park. Our students say they love the fantastic location, the personal tuition, family atmosphere, first class teaching, and chance to meet and make friends with people from 140 nationalities.
Some of our 2016 graduating students filmed this message to say why they chose Regent’s University London.

For Kishore, who recently graduated with a Master of Business Management, the setting was what impressed him.
“Regent’s University has the most beautiful campus in in London, if not England, and it's great to have that here as the backdrop to our studies,” he said.
Having completed a BA (Hons) International Events Management, Antoine liked Regent’s so much he decided to continue his studies and is now doing an MA International Business.
He highlighted the entrepreneurship and connections you can make as being big benefits of Regent’s, as well as the small class sizes.
“It's quite amazing because any question you have you can ask the tutor or the lecturer and you get an immediate response.”
All of the students said it was great that we have a community from more than 140 different countries and that they have been able to make friends from all over the world.
“The best thing about this university is that you find people from all sorts of cultures and religions and backgrounds,” said Odah, who is studying fashion marketing.
She also said it is the place to realise you’re dreams: “This is your chance to just do everything, to just embrace yourself – if it's what you're interested in just do it!”
Calling Regent’s “an amazing university to be a part of”, BA Management graduate Ninaz said at Regent’s you get to “realise what you want to do”.
MA Management graduate Luca added: “I have to say it has been a great experience and it has really enriched my life … Be ready to be changed for – in my opinion – the better.”
