Regent’s University London has a long history of welcoming American students to study at our beautiful campus in London. Since working with Webster University in St Louis, Missouri and welcoming hundreds of Study Abroad students from US universities each year we understand the individual needs and expectations of American students.


As a multi-national and multi-cultural institution Regent’s University London has become adept at relating to students from a variety of backgrounds. We understand that moving to another country, even one that speaks the same language, can be intimidating. That’s why our staff are available for questions and the Student Union provide a wide range of activities to help new students integrate into the university and to learn about London in general.

The majority of students live off campus after their first semester, after which they share apartments with their new friends. This gives students the chance for independence and the thrill of living in Central London, surrounded by museums, theatres, great food and the occasional football match.

How to apply

  • The easiest way to apply is directly online.
  • UCAS is the Universities Common Application System. UCAS is the means through which most UK students apply to university. Each student may select 5 undergraduate programmes to apply to (usually at 5 different universities) and the exact same application is sent to each university. We recommend this for students who are applying to more than 1 UK university as it minimises your paperwork. This is all for a minimum fee of £12-£23.
  • Common Application is used by a wide range of universities in the United States and increasingly for overseas institutions. We accept applications through the Common App as well.

NB: Please make an application through one route only to avoid confusion and duplication.

Entry requirements

Foundation programmes and US-style 4-year BA degrees (subject to validation)

  • Cumulative GPA of 2.5/4.0
  • 27 IB points

UK-style, 3 year BA (Hons) and BSc (Hons) degrees

  • 2 AP’s at 4/5 or 3 AP’s at 3/5
  • 32 IB points

Postgraduate programmes

  • Equivalent of a 2:1 UK degree, which approximates to a CGPA of 3.0/4.0

* Certain programmes, such as MSc Finance and MSc Oil & Gas Trade Management will require higher grades and will specify specific undergraduate modules to have been completed. Please refer to individual programme pages to confirm requirements.

Visa requirements

Any student who does not hold a European Union passport will need to apply for a Tier 4 student visa.

For students with US nationality this is a fairly straightforward process, as the United States is considered a low-risk country.

Note: Visas cannot be applied for before gaining an unconditional offer for a programme AND obtaining a CAS number, which is issued by Regent's. Details about this process will be explained when you receive your offer.

I chose Regent’s because the curriculum was attractive and challenging. London is a wonderful and welcoming place for any hard-working student looking to expand their academic portfolio. The city is full of multicultural societies and it really is a friendly place for everyone. I have made many international and national friends that I will cherish for life.
