A Regent’s education provides you with a high level of personal attention, and this begins from the moment you apply to study with us. We want to understand who you are and what your skills and interests may be – we are interested in your potential, as well as your prior achievements. We review each application comprehensively and on its individual merit, considering all of your skills, interests and attributes.
If you are holding A levels, we would typically make you an offer at two A-Levels at Grades A-C.
We will also assess your application for proficiency in Mathematics, asking for a GCSE in this subject at grade A-C / 9-4 (or the international equivalent).
We receive applications each year from over 170 countries and are happy to assess all international qualifications. For example, if you are studying the International Baccalaureate, we would make an offer based on your successful completion of the IB Diploma; if you are studying an American High School Diploma, we would make an offer based on a minimum GPA of 2.8 plus two APs at grades 3,3.
After the submission of your application you will be asked to present your design work.
We are looking for a body of work that demonstrates your research skills, creative thinking and idea generation, experimentation, mark-making and sketchbooks, image-making, drawing and observation skills. Please also show finished pieces of work that you are proud of.
We would also like to see experimentation with typography and letterforms that demonstrate your understanding of typography as a fundamental creative communication tool.
We are looking for candidates with enthusiasm for all things visual. Your portfolio should demonstrate that you have an aptitude for creativity through your previous studies.
