Loughborough College

The history of Loughborough College dates back to 1909. Established as a technical institute it expanded rapidly, gaining an enviable reputation for innovation and high quality provision, both nationally and internationally. Today that tradition is continued with new programmes and facilities being developed to meet the ever-increasing demands of industry and the needs of all their students.

The first two phases of a major estates development have been completed which provide newly built specialist facilities for hair, beauty, hospitality, sport, exercise and fitness, technology and engineering.

Today more than 8,000 students enrol every year at Loughborough College. They come not only from Loughborough and the surrounding area, but also from all over the UK and more than 50 countries worldwide.
