Send us your documents
If you have a conditional offer to study with us, we may ask you to provide evidence of your exam results or other documents.
As soon as you have received your final results or other documents (such as references or English language proficiency), please let us know as we cannot confirm your place without these documents. If you are providing exam results, we will require your transcript and your degree certificate (or your provisional certificate or award letter). These documents must be certified and be in both their original language and translated into English (if applicable) by an official source.
We check all documents to ensure that they are genuine and, if necessary, we may request originals to be submitted and may also confirm the information contained in the documents with the awarding institution.
It is important to upload your documents to the online application portal as soon as possible so that you have enough time to arrive at the university before the start of term.
For international students, after you have accepted your offer and met all of your conditions, you will need to pay a deposit to receive your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). You will need your CAS document to apply for your student visa (also known as the Student Route).
We will email you once your place is confirmed, followed, closer to the start of term, by information about your arrival at Loughborough, and your induction programme.
Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS)
ATAS is a scheme run by the UK government for international students wanting to study certain subjects.
The ATAS certificate is issued by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and gives security clearance to study specific engineering, science and technology subjects.
Do I need ATAS?
ATAS clearance only applies to certain subject areas, where the knowledge gained could be used in the development or delivery of weapons of mass destruction (eg certain science, engineering or technology subjects). Only nationals of certain countries, or those who are subject to a visa requirement, must obtain ATAS clearance.
If you need to apply for an ATAS certificate, this will be included as a condition in your offer.
Results lower than expected?
If your results are lower than expected and do not meet your offer conditions, please upload your transcripts and contact us for advice. In some cases we may be able to suggest a similar or related programme, though this is not a guarantee.
