India

We’re so pleased that you’re thinking of studying in the UK here at Loughborough University. We welcome applications from students based all around the world, including India, and this is evident in the vibrant, diverse and inspiring community of students we have at both of our campuses.

Overview

Choosing to move to a different country to study is a huge opportunity, however we appreciate that it’s natural to have lots of questions and want to do lots of research before making a decision – which is why we’ve gathered lots of useful advice and information for you right here.

At Loughborough University, we have a long history of welcoming students from India onto our campus – in fact, the first ever student from India to study here graduated back in 1937. Today, we’re now home to over 230 students from India, split across undergraduatepostgraduate taught and postgraduate research degrees.

It's no surprise then, that we have a large network of graduates who are now based all around the world. Many of our Indian alumni are successful, one such example is Anuj Kichlu who graduated from Loughborough with an MSc in Sport Management in 2010. He later founded his own football company and sits on another sports board in India.

Our well-established teaching is supported by the research collaborations we have, these include a large number of prestigious Indian universities including IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Madras and Anna University, Chennai.

We’re also home to the England Cricket Board, with the National Cricket Performance Centre based in the middle of our Loughborough campus. This state-of-the-art facility is open to all students as part of the cricket club, as well as regularly hosting national teams who can be seen playing on campus.

Rob Reeves, the Regional Manager for India in the International Office usually visits India 4 times per year.

Students at Loughborough University celebrate international day.

Culture and community

There is a real sense of community and family at Loughborough University, and our Faith and Spirituality Centre provides a peaceful place for our students to come and reflect, explore and express their faith and spirituality. It’s a place for you to pray, meditate and to meet others. You’ll find that both our London and Loughborough campuses are very inclusive.

We have over 100 clubs and societies for you to join in your spare time ranging from sports to religious societies. The Bhangra Society is very popular with our Indian students. Our Indian students celebrate various religious festivals with us on campus each year.

Every year the LSU hosts an event on International Day which celebrates the different cultures here at Loughborough with free entry and free food. In the past we’ve had over 40 stalls representing their country – it’s fantastic. The LSU also runs an International Students’ Network which is run by a team of students(you could join this committee) with the sole aim of helping and supporting international students once they arrive on campus. Not only are there are lots of events, societies and groups designed to help you feel more at home, you can also influence the experience future international students have if they decide to study here by becoming part of the international student committee.
