As well as having a diverse and accomplished teaching staff who are always willing to discuss and help you throughout your course, Regents Theological College also offers a number of other opportunities for further support and assistance.
Regents believes in the power of relationships to transform lives, and to support this each undergraduate student will be assigned a personal tutor group.
If you are studying on campus, you will meet once a week with your tutor group to talk around academic, pastoral and discipleship needs. The group will be made up of people from different years, which is also a way to get to know other students, and learn from their experiences.
If you are a context student you will meet your tutor group for lunch each time you are onsite for a focused learning week.
As well as developing your relationship with other students, the tutor programme enables you to get to know a member of the faculty who can be your first point of contact for pastoral and academic issues throughout your time at college.
Pastoral Care and Support
As well as your personal tutor, our Pastoral Dean is available to all campus, context and postgraduate students for support during your time at Regents. As well as being an experienced church pastor, the pastoral dean can also direct you to other places of support such as Student Services, or the independent counselling services at the Lyttelton Well.
Discipleship at Regents Theological College.
As part of our ‘Heads, Hands, and Hearts’ focus, we run a number of enrichment activities at Regents.
Each morning we come together as a community to worship and hear a thought from the Bible. On Wednesday afternoons we join together for a longer time of praise and worship, and a talk from a member of staff or invited guest.
It is a central theme of college life that your studies do not get separated from your discipleship journey with Jesus.
These times, alongside the Holy Spirit Encounter Nights, the regular student-organised prayer meetings, and your personal devotional life, are key to you getting the most out of your student experience.
Allowances for students with a learning difficulty
If you are a student with a learning difficulty, health problem, or disability, then we are here to help.
As well as a campus wide inclusive learning policy that supports students with Dyslexia and other needs, we can also support you with accessible rooms.
Students with additional needs may be entitled to assistance. GOV.UK’s website gives details and can be used to determine the criteria for eligibility. This site also advises on how to apply for DSA funding, if you meet the stipulated criteria.
If you are eligible for DSA support, we encourage students to apply for this as soon as they have been offered a place at Regents Theological College. It can take 10-12 weeks to complete the process and the earlier the support is applied for, the easier your start to Regents will be.
