Meet the Team

Our dedicated International Team are here to support you before you arrive and throughout your time in the UK.

They will guide you through our application process and, if required, can offer advice on applying for a visa. Once you arrive at College, they can help you to open a bank account, register with a local doctor, extend your visa, and a whole lot more to help you settle in.

The International Team are dedicated to making sure that every international students’ experience at Loughborough College is valuable and exciting, both inside and outside of the classroom, and are always exploring new ways to keep things fresh and interesting.


International Welfare Officer


I’m Della and I am responsible for the welfare of our international students.

I am here to help if you need to register with the police, open a bank account, or extend your student visa. I can also offer advice on how to register with a doctor or dentist and, if you are a government-sponsored student, I can help you to prepare the necessary paperwork required for your scholarship.

If you have any problems or worries, contact me or come and see me for a chat and, if I can’t help you myself, I will find someone who can!  I am available on reception in The Hub between 12 noon and 2 pm every day for international students to drop by no appointment is necessary between these times.  I also visit The Gables, the College’s halls of residence, on a termly basis to catch up with all of our international students.

As well as international student welfare, I am responsible for the English Language programme admissions and monitoring all of our international students’ attendance and progression.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking and, especially, cycling: I am a member of my local cycling club and I lead a beginners cycling group on Sunday mornings with my husband.

I have worked in several departments at Loughborough College since 1989 but have spent the majority of my time working with international students, which I really enjoy.

I look forward to meeting you and looking after you whilst you are a student at Loughborough College!

International Welfare Officer


I’m Erzsebet!

I’ve worked at Loughborough College for over 17 years; 10 of which were spent teaching English to international students. During that time, I also helped students to find work placements and, more generally, settle into their new lives in the UK.

Nowadays, I continue to support international students with the transition to UK study; finding my role both rewarding, as a guide and a facilitator.

Having worked at Loughborough College for several years now, I am happy to share with you why I believe our college is a great place to study and learn and how Loughborough College can meet your study needs. I’d love to hear from you so please do get in touch!

International Admissions Officer


I’m Jayne and I joined Loughborough College in 2007 working in the Business, Management and Professional department before joining the International Team in 2014, in which I’m responsible for receiving and assessing the majority of international student applications.

One of the favourite things about my job is how diverse our international students are and I look forward to following your journey from application to achievement. I’m also fortunate to be working with great colleagues who strive to give our international students the best experience possible!

I live in a small village in Leicestershire and in my spare time, I enjoy the wonderful countryside that surrounds my home by taking long walks with my husband. We also enjoy regular visits to our local cinema and socialising with our family and friends.

I have two sons the eldest is studying Medicine at University in London and the younger is completing secondary school with intentions of following in his brothers footsteps.

From a parent’s perspective, I know the importance of choosing the most suitable establishment for your child’s educational needs and, in my job, I see every day what a great facility our students have here at Loughborough College, providing them with the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

I hope to hear from you soon!

International Admissions Officer


I’m Victoria and I coordinate and lead the admissions, visa compliance, student welfare, and advice services in the International Team. I have worked in the team since 2013, having grown up in Loughborough and studied BSc (Hons) Construction Engineering Management at Loughborough University.

After graduating in 2003, I worked in the construction industry for eight years before having children, and deciding to change my career. I have a detailed knowledge of UK visa regulations and international qualifications, including their UK equivalencies, and I am more than happy to answer any questions that you may have about any aspect of studying in the UK.

Having done so myself, I think that Loughborough is a great place to live and study! In my spare time, I like to spend time with my children and I also enjoy reading, cooking, and going to the theatre and concerts.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

“The College has invested in recent years to improve the facilities for students: “There is a big library at the college where many useful books and journals can be found. Also, computers are available for student use in the college whenever they are needed and quiet places for studying can be found as well. I really like the fact that buildings in the college are newly built and also there are some shops and cafeterias available on site”

Rated 5/5 for her overall experience as an international student at Loughborough College.
