Welcome to the Loughborough University web pages for students from Turkey!
Loughborough University is a popular choice for Turkish Postgraduate students; however we are also home to a small number of Turkish undergraduate students. Overall, there are 20 Turkish students currently studying at Loughborough, at both our Leicestershire and London campuses.
Loughborough’s international reputation for teaching quality and research in Engineering and Science has proved particularly attractive to graduates from Turkish Universities who wish to continue their education abroad. Our reputation in Science and Engineering also puts Loughborough in a good position to increase the employability of Turkish students who ultimately wish to enter Turkey’s major industries such as textiles, food processing, automotive, mining, petroleum and construction. Popular subject areas for our Turkish students include:
- Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering
- Civil and Building Engineering
- Diplomacy, Statecraft and Foreign Policy
- Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
Turkish students at Loughborough like to get involved in much that the famous Loughborough Experience has to offer. Loughborough Students Union has over 100 different societies students can join, including the Turkish Society which hosts a number of events and meet-ups throughout the year.
Loughborough University is also well set out to cater for Muslim students. 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 celebration.
We strongly encourage applications from Turkish students to join our diverse international community at Loughborough. If you are interested in studying at Loughborough University, our International Office team would be happy to help and support you, so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
