Coming to a new country and studying away from home can be daunting, especially if this is the first time you have done so. Students can be confident that, throughout their studies, they will receive high-quality academic teaching, guidance from a Progress Tutor, and ongoing help and advice from an experienced International Team.
Other benefits include:
- teaching staff who are experienced in supporting learners throughout the transition to study in the UK
- the opportunity to study with students from all over the world
- support to develop both the language and study skills needed for success at university in the UK
- study through a variety of methods including: seminars, lectures, group work and independent research
Every international student at Loughborough College is assigned a dedicated Progress Tutor who takes a special interest in their academic development, helping them to plan their work and offering advice on further study.
Progress Tutors undertake regular reviews to make sure that students are progressing on their course and achieving their targets. If students have any problems with their course, their Progress Tutor will support them by liaising with other College staff and tutors.
They will try to help resolve any issues related to the student’s academic programme of study, as well as personal issues which may be affecting their progress.
At the start of the programme, students meet with their Progress Tutor to discuss study plans, timetables, the structure of their programme of study and life at the College.
The Progress Tutor also guides and supports students during their UCAS application and specialist advice is given to assist students in making their university choices and deciding which course is best for them.
