Latest information updates for international students arriving in October 2021

We are delighted to confirm that Loughborough University will reimburse the full cost of quarantine to the value of £1,750, for new undergraduate and postgraduate (taught and research) students arriving from Red List countries. We hope this provides reassurance and support for those students who wish to join Loughborough this year but are being asked to quarantine in government hotel facilities as part of the University arrival process.
Discounted self-isolation / quarantine for students arriving in University-owned Halls of Residence. Please refer to our Student Accommodation Centre for further information.
During student self-isolation, we will offer discounted COVID-19 tests for days 2 and 8. The University will also provide one free-of-charge Test and Release Covid-19 test on day 5 of quarantine for those living in either University-managed accommodation or in private accommodation. A negative test result will allow students to end their quarantine period at this point.
Online options for October Master’s students: we are delighted to offer online as well as in-country study options for students who begin their master’s programme at Loughborough University and Loughborough University London in 2021/22.
January intakes: Loughborough University continues to accept applications for the additional Masters programmes which will begin on our Loughborough and London campuses in January 2022
Free coach service to provide transport from London Heathrow Airport to the Loughborough campus for new international students at the start of the academic year. You can book your place here.
