Established in 1909, Loughborough College is steeped in history and renowned for providing excellent levels of high-quality education. With fantastic links to industry and smaller class sizes, we’re proud to be doing things differently.
You can expect the same quality as a university course with access to great facilities and one-on-one time with tutors. Our courses have been developed in consultation with industry professionals and are designed to ensure that you are expertly trained and ready for the workplace.
In its early years, Loughborough College built an excellent reputation for its engineering provision with innovative courses such as the five-year Mechanical Engineering which led to the prestigious Diploma of Loughborough College (DLC). This reputation has been enhanced and sustained to the present day – Loughborough College is JTL's preferred training provider for both engineering and electrical installation. It should be made clear that the present Loughborough University was derived from the old Loughborough (Technical) College - the present College is separate from the University.It was the old College (precursor to the University) which issued the Diploma of Loughborough College (DLC).
Loughborough has long been associated with sport. This association was instigated by Principal of Loughborough Technical College Herbert Schofield, who in 1918 convinced the county to acquire 14 acres of land for sports pitches and facilities. Despite not being a University, Loughborough Technical College sports teams were admitted to the Universities Athletics Union and excelled in competition. The land is now part of the Loughborough University Campus playing fields.
