Study at Loughborough
The century-old Loughborough College boasts a modern, fresh approach to learning and training. Smaller classes and a healthy student-teacher ratio make a personalised learning environment possible. Every international student is assigned a dedicated Progress Tutor, who takes a special interest in their academic development. This personalised approach makes Daniel from Nigeria, a student of the mechanical engineering foundation programme say “….every time I have a problem I can easily approach my teacher and he can give me counsel.”
International students have multiple study options at Loughborough. They can choose to enrol in the two-year international A level programmes. BTEC, foundation degrees and HNDs are also offered in a variety of subjects. International students can improve their English skills through the general English/IELTS English courses or the summer school programmes. At Loughborough, the emphasis is on employability and courses are structured based on inputs from partner universities and industries.
Outstanding Student Experience
Loughborough College understands young international students need a lot of support to settle down in a new environment and offers exceptional student support. The International Team is ever ready to help the students out on all issues ranging from visa extensions to opening a bank account. Students can choose to stay in the safe and comfortable on campus accommodation and enjoy spacious common rooms and great outdoors.
There is never a dull moment at the college - Loughborough’s Students’ Union, ranked No 1 in the UK for student experience, is home to more than 90 clubs and societies and provides great entertainment. The local town centre is also full of life with multi-cuisine eateries, clubs, and upmarket shops.
