Adult Guidance Service

REGSA: The aim of REGSA is to provide an independent, confidential and free educational and career
guidance service to adults.

Although mature students can face obstacles, especially if re-entering the system after a prolonged absence from formal education, many students who study at the Institute have shown that these can be overcome.

Mature students have a wealth of knowledge and experience with which they make a valuable contribution.
