Services and support

Our Student Services team is here to help you adjust and get the most out of life at Regent’s and in London.

We understand that to do well at university, students will often need different kinds of support at different times.

Our team offers a comprehensive range of information, support and specialist advice to help you with any matter, whether it is personal, practical or academic.

We are here to offer you help and advice whenever you need it.

Personal help and information

You can contact us at any point during your time at Regent’s for:

  • Advice on academic issues - such as difficulties with studying, periods of absence or concerns about your course
  • Help with personal issues, whether it's a quick query or something that needs a more in-depth response
  • Assistance to register with a doctor and find the health services you need
  • Financial information and support such as finding hardship funding
  • Practical information, such as how to get a student travel discount card

Academic support

We offer a range of Study Skills workshops  to support you with your academic studies and provide ongoing support to ensure you have the key skills to be successful.

There is also a range of materials available on Blackboard, the University's virtual learning environment, for those students who prefer to study in their own time.

Regent's University London offers English language support and throughout the academic year. This is available for all students, but primarily for those who need help with academic writing and reading texts.

Pre-sessional English courses are also available, with business options in the summer and academic options throughout the year.

Counselling

Many people resolve their problems by talking to friends, family or perhaps someone in their department. Others find looking on-line for information about their concerns helpful and we have a selection of self-help information available. However, there are also times when you need more than this, to talk to someone from outside your day to day life, and this is when the NHS Counselling Service may be helpful. Counselling can help you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so that you can reach a clearer understanding of yourself. This can help you to adapt, change and prepare you for your future. 

Accessing the NHS Counselling service

Full time students
Students can access the NHS Counselling service by booking an appointment with their own NHS doctor. Students can register with a local NHS (National Health Service) doctor, otherwise known as a General Practitioner, or GP, by entering their postcode onto NHS GP search

Alternatively, Regent’s students can register with Marylebone Health Centre which is a 5 minute walk from the main Park Campus.

Part time students
Students who are studying at Regent’s for less than six months should contact Student Support or the Disability Office for a referral to the counselling service at Marylebone Health Centre.
