What advice would you give to prospective students looking to study at Loughborough University London?
LU London is in its early stage and you should seize this opportunity to engage with the resources that are provided. It has something very different about it in comparison with other universities that are already built and stable because it is so new. Students should take advantage of the time that they have in London, providing more opportunities than you could expect.
