If applying via UCAS, please refer to the full list of UCAS course codes. Please refer to the How to apply section below, for more information.

Transfer of credits
If you have already participated in degree-level education, you may be able to transfer some of your credits towards a course at Regent's University London. We recognise Advanced Prior Learning (APL), which may make it possible for you to begin your studies at a more advanced level within the programme.
This is at the discretion of Regent's University London.

Any applicant being considered for APL will be required to have equivalent qualifications from another university. A key criterion for the acceptance of APL qualifications will be the similarity of the learning outcomes between the two programmes, so that the exemptions can be matched specifically to particular modules within the Regent's University London undergraduate degree programme.

To apply for transfer of credit, you must provide detailed descriptions (certified English translations where necessary) of any courses taken, and transcripts of relevant grades. Transfer of credit will only be assessed before entry. Please note: all transfer students must complete at least three semesters at Regent's University London, and transfer into the final year of the degree programme is not possible. All credit transfer is subject to a language test in your chosen foreign language(s). Your level of foreign language skills will determine the level at which you can enter the programme.

Languages
English is the language of instruction, but it is not a language option. Of the nine languages offered at Regent's, you cannot study your native language. In addition, the programme does not allow students to take more than one language at beginner level.

Language Testing
At registration, if you are a non-beginner language student you will be required to take a diagnostic test in your chosen language. The results of this test will determine which language class you will be placed in.
