Regent's College London Edit
Regent's College is located in Regent's Park in London, England. It is one of the two largest groups of buildings in the park, alongside London Zoo, and was built on the site of South Villa, one of the original eight Regent's Park villas. Regent's College accommodates five schools:
- European Business School London
- British American College London
- Regent's Business School
- School of Psychotherapy and Counselling
- Webster Graduate School
- Internexus, a provider of English language courses.
Regent's College also operates a conference centre.
Bedford College Edit
The Regent's College premises were previously the campus of Bedford College of the University of London. The site was leased by Bedford College for Women (as it was then called) in 1908, and a new set of buildings designed by the architect Basil Champneys was opened by Queen Mary in 1913. The buildings were modified and added to over the years, especially after bomb damage during the Second World War. Bedford College became fully coeducational in 1965, and moved to Egham in Surrey after merging with Royal Holloway College, another former women's college, in 1985, to form the Royal Holloway and Bedford New College. There were plans in the late 1980s to set up a private medical school in London with Sa'udi Arabian funding: these came to naught, except that name of the "Hunter School of Medicine" appeared on the London street map at this site.
