Secretary of State for Education Nicky Morgan has highlighted the strong role played by Loughborough College for international students and on the global stage.
The Loughborough MP commented on the education and support offered to students from overseas after officially opening the brand new £14 million Sixth Form Centre at the College.
"It was a pleasure to meet some of Loughborough College's international students.
“Our education sector is respected round the world and Loughborough College plays a strong part in maintaining our overseas links, educating international students and often supporting them in their sporting endeavours too.
“I think Loughborough is a great place to study and live and we want to welcome international students to both the College and University."
Ula Wang, International Recruitment Manager at Loughborough College, said: “We are delighted to see the opening of the new Sixth Form Centre. It will provide our international students with facilities which are amongst some of the best in the country, along with a wonderful space in which they can study and socialise.
“At the official opening of the Centre, two of our international student representatives - Danah Park from South Korea and Abdullah Alyamani from Saudi Arabia - had the opportunity to meet Nicky Morgan.
“They shared with the Education Secretary how excited they are to be studying in the UK at Loughborough College, and their hopes of moving on to a top UK university, after completing their course.”
Loughborough College currently has international students from over 40 countries studying on courses including A-Levels, Higher National Diploma, International Foundation and various English language programmes.
