I'm interested in joining Loughborough in 2021, but I am an international student. I'm worried that the uni may not be that diverse in terms of the range of ethnicities. Can someone who goes to or knows anything about Loughborough help?
I want to study Media and Communications(bsc) if that helps.

Diversity is a poor criteria for choosing a UK university. There will always be significant populations of international students, and Loughborough is near Leicester which is extremely "diverse". Generally you would look for % of international students are a better indicator. The most diverse UK universities, may effectively also be the worst.

Agreed for the most part. I think only if a university is really small and not very good would it lack diversity. I haven't see one yet that does. And as you allude to, crap unis in big cities try to get as many international students as possible for that sweet dolla.

Hi

Being a single-site campus university, we have a great community. From an international perspective we have students from around 130 countries.
Have a look at our international web pages for more info, might help you make up your mind.
