Hello there,

I am really interested in knowing the level of diversity at Loughborough. I love the school but I would like to know how global the school is. I personally am from a country in Africa and wanted to know about the size African/black student population. I don't think this should offend anyone as the demographics of a school is an important piece of information applicants should know.

Thank you so much in advance

I second that R-Team. Half-Asian, half-white, but I prefer having diverse friends, not just friends of one race. I don't want 90% white friends. I don't want 90% black friends. I don't want 90% Asian friends. I want it to be like in London - 100% diverse. If not then I will choose Leeds.

Hi z964302,

We're proud of our diversity here at Loughborough, and we're the home away from home for so many people from different faiths, cultures and backgrounds. If you look at this link you can see some of the testimonials from students:
http://www.lboro.ac.uk/international...cants/country/

We also have a large selection of Culture/Nation/Faith societies which you can join:
https://www.lsu.co.uk/getinvolved/societies/socslist/

Alongside these, we have the Welfare and Diversity section fronted by Hannah Keating ([email protected]) with officers in International Development (Salome - https://www.lsu.co.uk/onyourside/international/) and Ethnic Minorities (Sherrii - https://www.lsu.co.uk/getinvolved/we...ociations/emn/).

All three of them would be happy to answer any questions you have

I hope that helps!

Alex
