“I am delighted to see Loughborough University London filled with students. There is a real buzz about the place.

“We have exceeded our student intake targets, which proves there is a genuine demand for the courses we are offering; Our Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management Master’s is already one of the most popular in Europe.”

A full programme of events is planned over the next 10 days to welcome students to London and introduce them to their courses content and tutors, before teaching officially begins on Thursday 1 October.
