Why did you choose to study at Loughborough University London?

It was basically the first thing I got to know in the Induction Week and the experience was pretty good. Ben is helpful in different activities, and I personally like him a lot and I'm grateful for his help.

Do you have any advice for students moving to London?

Research your accomodation options and make use of the campus' location to explore London and discover what the city has to offer.

Do you take part in any extra-curricular activities on campus or in the local area?

I have signed up for different activities related to sports and entrepreneurship outside the campus, which were interesting and helpful. I have also taken part in activities organised by LSU London.

The Cooper Box Arena, London Aquatics Centre, and the Better Gym.
