Regent Academy run home-study courses in subjects as varied as bookkeeping and Feng Shui, enabling students to acquire the skills and qualifications they need at their own time and pace.
Courses are written by professionals, and are planned to be interesting and easy to follow. As students complete each of their practical assignments, they receive feedback from their personal tutor.
The tutors are available to offer professional guidance and encouragement to students. Course advisors are also accessible via a freephone number, to give administrative support and advice.
There are no time limits for assignments, and no formal examinations to sit. Students simply work in their own time and at their own pace.
All successfully completed courses are recognised with a Regent Academy qualification. Some courses also qualify students for a City and Guilds certificate. These awards are presented at an annual graduation ceremony at the Regents Park Hotel in London's West End.
Regent Academy offer a three-month money-back guarantee. Any learner who is not satisfied with their course, for whatever reason, can return the course materials in good condition within three months of the enrolment date for a full refund.
More than 90 other centres of learning now offer Regent Academy courses to their own students. For people who are unable to take up full-time study, the academy offers the opportunity to pursue interests and acquire new skills from home, with the support of specialist tutors.
The Regent Academy was first accredited in 1999, and successfully re-assessed and re-accredited in 2003 and 2008.
