As a small university, we centre our teaching around your individual goals – identifying the skills and support you need to thrive.
Small, interactive classes (of 20 students or less) ensure you have a high level of contact with your tutors, enabling you to develop your individual strengths and interests.
Learn from staff who combine strong academic credentials with deep experience of the luxury industry (from hospitality to fashion, PR, and marketing), offering insights into the latest trends and the chance to apply your learning practically.
Also attend regular guest lectures with industry professionals (from luxury cars to wine, fashion, perfume and more) – networking and developing partnerships with brands, PRs, CEOs and more. Regent's alumni also return to help mentor students and share their experiences.
You’ll also be assigned a personal tutor who’ll help you to build a bespoke programme that reflects your passions and future career.
Engage in authentic experiences that encourage collaboration and self-expression: learning through hands-on tasks such as debates, discussions, role plays, simulations, group projects and workshops, designed to help you develop skills including critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making.
And take field trips and join work placements to put your learning in context – building your professional network and gaining a competitive edge.
In terms 1 and 2, you'll have around 20 contact hours per week (per 20 credit module) and around 10 hours per week (per 10 credit module). In term 3, you'll produce your dissertation – a 60 credit module. While you'll be expected to manage your time, you'll likely spend around 600 learning hours on this project.
