Student support

We currently have over 2,000 students with us from around 150 different countries outside of the EU and have a long history of welcoming international students.

Loughborough University won the first ever Times Higher Education (THE) award for ‘outstanding support for overseas students’. Our Careers and Employability Centre, Students’ Union and visa advice were among the many services that international students rated highly. 

In 2014 our commitment to providing an excellent student experience and supportive high quality learning environment was once again recognised by a leading independent survey – the Student Barometer and International Student Barometer – in which Loughborough was ranked Top 10 globally for the Careers and Employability Centre (out of 150 universities globally), Top 10 globally for the Students’ Union (out of 182 universities globally), and Top 10 globally for accommodation support (out of 165 universities globally).

We understand study overseas away from your family and friends can be a new and challenging experience for many students. We have in place a wide range of highly trained specialist staff and tailored services to support our students throughout their time with us, including before they arrive and after they graduate.
