Turkey

Hoşgeldiniz! It’s great that you’re thinking of studying here in the UK at Loughborough University. We know that choosing to study away from Turkey in a different country is a big decision, so to help we’ve gathered together lots of useful advice and information for you.

Overview

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.

There are lots of ways you can study here, whether you choose to study one of our foundation courses, undergraduate courses, postgraduate master’s degrees or research degrees. There may also be opportunities to study here through the Erasmus+ scheme.

We have two campuses, one located in Loughborough and the other in London. Our Loughborough campus is made up of 440 acres, lots of open spaces and sport facilities. Our London campus is exclusively for postgraduate applicants and is based on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which was home to the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic games.

UNITECH international academic network

Loughborough University is a member of the UNITECH International academic network – an association of leading European engineering universities which aims to prepare qualified engineering students for their professional future. This enables engineering students to spend at least one semester at a university abroad in Europe, to undertake a placement and to participate in professional coaching and training. Loughborough University Vice Chancellor Robert Allison is currently President of UNITECH, highlighting our dedication to the organisation.
