With origins as a Technical Institute first formed in 1909, Loughborough University received its Royal Charter in 1966. Then called ‘Loughborough University of Technology’, it was the country’s first technological university.    

We have welcomed Ghanaian students to Loughborough for decades, and have numerous scholarship opportunities from partial merit awards through to the 90% Dean’s Award Scholarship, specifically for courses on our London campus.  In September 2015, we look forward to welcoming students to our London campus for the first time, with our launch of Loughborough University in London (LUiL).

Loughborough has performed well in each of the national league tables published this year; in fact, we are now ranked 6th in the UK (Guardian 2018) of the 123 universities. We are proud to have won the WhatUni University of the Year 2015 as well as awards for the Best Student Union and Best Accommodation.  

Loughborough offer a range of scholarships for students from Nigeria, including a 100% African Development Trust Scholarship available for Postgraduate students. More information about our scholarship offerings can be found here
