  • Loughborough College Overview Image

"We offer a range of courses to help you get into university or employment and develop your career."


Established in 1909, we're proud of our long-standing reputation for providing excellent levels of high-quality teaching and training across Leicestershire.

Inspiring success and enriching lives...

With a fantastic range of courses, first-class facilities and a fresh approach to modern teaching and training, why go anywhere else?

Of the 11,000 students currently enrolled at Loughborough College, most will agree that studying with us means far more than just gaining a qualification.

We offer a different kind of learning environment where you'll be treated as an adult and our relaxed and welcoming campus means that you'll fit straight into the College way of life.

We have lots of different courses, from A Levels to vocational programmes, Apprenticeships, and degrees, and you'll have the opportunity to gain practical, industry-related skills while you study.
