Loughborough College has unveiled a new, state-of-the-art Esports suite to help students level up their gaming and business skills.
The classroom has been kitted out with around 40 top-of-the-range gaming PCs, big screens and gaming equipment to support students on the College’s new Esports BTEC Level 2 and 3 qualifications.
The room is also home to the College’s new competitive Esports team, the Loughborough Lycans which will compete nationally in a range of competitions and tournaments.
Danny Lee, Curriculum Manager for the Esports programme, said: “We are so excited to welcome our first-ever cohort of Esports students to our cutting-edge gaming hub.
“Of course, Esports isn’t just about playing video games – it is mainly about the industry that orbits gaming including business, marketing, entrepreneurship, media and broadcasting.
“It will help unlock the potential of students who want to forge a career in the video gaming industry.”
The Esports suite is part of a range of investments made by the college this summer to improve student experiences. Other investments include installing an entire section of an airplane cabin for travel and tourism students.
