Loughborough University students on Postgraduate Search say:
“As an international, it's been fantastic. I can't ask for better. The floor I'm on has a good blend of internationals as well so I don't feel like an alien here. I get amazing support from my supervisors, and I've been provided every opportunity to succeed. I'd whole heartedly recommend this university for PhD studies - assuming the supervisor/student fit is good.”
“I’ve had the absolute time of my life so far, the year has gone so quickly and I’ve met so many like-minded and amazing people here. I can’t wait to come back for a second year and I never want the experience to end!”
“Been here 5 years and love it!.”
On top of the Loughborough campus, postgraduate students now have access to a London campus, based at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, east London.
