Welcome Event

Once you make an application, we’ll invite you in for one of our welcome events – including interview. You need to attend one of these events in order to secure your place at Loughborough College.

FAQs

  • What is the welcome event?

    Welcome events are similar to our open days but on a smaller scale. They are only for students who have already made an application, rather than prospective applicants, and are specific to the course you have applied for.

  • What will I be doing?

    You can expect to be at college for around 30 mins to 2 hours depending on what you have applied for. Each team runs their event differently, your event will be a combination of: programme-led interviews with your potential tutors (group or individual), subject presentations, Q&A opportunities, and programme-specific activities to give you a feel for what it’s like studying at Loughborough College.

  • Why do I need to attend a welcome event?

    We want to make sure that you’re applying for the right course, and it gives you a chance to meet your tutors and ask any questions.

    N.B. You need to attend one of these events if you want to secure your place and receive an offer from us.

  • Where will the event be held?

    All of our events are based on the Loughborough College campus. When you arrive, please report to our main reception in the HUB building.

    We have free parking on campus. Our postcode is LE11 3BT.

  • Who is the event for?

    Most teams encourage both applicants and parents/guardians to attend the welcome event. Some parts of the event are aimed at our applicants, while others are aimed at parents/guardians. Where appropriate parents will be invited separately.

  • What happens if I can’t make that date?

    No need to worry. When you receive your invite there is an option to request an alternative date. As long as you tell us that you need another date, you will be invited to the next available event.

  • What to bring

    You’ll receive further details on what to bring with you when you receive your official invite.

  • Refreshments

    Tea, coffee and snacks are available to buy in our café.

You’ll receive your invite approximately 2 weeks before your event date. In the meantime, if you do have any further questions, please contact us using the details below:
