Why did you choose to study at Loughborough University London?

The location of the campus, the programme structure and the module 'Family Business' are the reasons why I was interested in Loughborough University London. 

What attracted you to the programme?

The module 'Family Business' because I plan to launch into my family business after I graduate. 

List at least one thing you wish you knew about Loughborough University London before arriving on campus.

I wish I knew a bit more about the accomodation around campus, the transportation to the campus, the course and study structure (Block study = 3 weeks per module), the course outline and the percentage between exams and coursework. 


List three ways that studying a master's degree is helping you to reach your future career goals.

  1. Not only the academic knowledge but also about the preparation to be working in the multinational culture.
  2. Guide your business ideas.
  3. Building connections with other students from different backgrounds and business areas.
