Welcome to the Loughborough University web pages for students from Pakistan!
Loughborough town and the East Midlands region of England have strong cultural links with Pakistan, so it is not difficult for new students from your country to feel at home here.
There are currently 29 Pakistani students studying with us on campus, at undergraduate, masters and PhD level, and popular courses include:
On the campus or nearby, Muslim students can find all the facilities needed to maintain their religious observance. As well as dedicated prayer spaces on campus, Loughborough town centre is home to the Loughborough Mosque and Islamic Cultural Association centre. There are Halal food provisions across the campus and town, including a choice of restaurants and grocery stores. The Loughborough Students Union Islamic Society also provides an environment for Muslim students which fosters a sense of community and belonging, including offering pastoral support, weekly discussion circles, and festival celebrations.
For at least 60 years the University has been training excellent engineers from Pakistan who have returned home to advance their careers in various branches of industry, science, academia and business. Senior alumni recall their time at Loughborough with strong affection and praise the University for some of the very same characteristics that give it its strong reputation today. They praise the high quality of its teaching and the exceptionally good links with companies and the world of work. Indeed, Loughborough’s present-day undergraduates from Pakistan tend be especially enthusiastic about taking up the sandwich-year professional placements which form a part of most degree programmes here.
Research students such as those from Pakistan’s Universities of Engineering and Technology obtain supervision from leading specialists in their respective fields. And then there’s the top-class cricket, hockey and football on campus to give added spice to your study and living experience here! A vigorous young Loughborough Students Union Pakistani Society can tell you about all of the activities available at this, your home from home in Loughborough.
