Loughborough University and Study Group’s Bellerbys College opens a new international student route

12 January 2021

Loughborough University, a leading UK Higher Education Institution, ranked in the top 10 in the most recent national league tables, has signed a conditional progression agreement with Study Group’s Bellerbys College.

Bellerbys students on all eleven subject pathway courses offered by the college are now able to receive conditional offers for specific degrees at Loughborough University, subject to a UCAS application. This includes applicants to Sport Sciences, a subject in which Loughborough is considered a world leader.

Bellerbys now has partnerships with four of the top ten UK universities, including the University of Bath and the University of Bristol.

Dr. Mark Cunnington, UK and EU Executive Director at Study Group, notes: “We’re delighted to be able to offer Bellerbys students competitive conditional offers to attend Loughborough University. The University’s strong connections to industry and access to placements makes it a popular choice. Furthermore, the overall student experience is renowned by students, having been awarded University of the Year at the 2020 WhatUni Student Choice Awards. In addition to benefitting from this student-focused culture, our graduating students will enrich both the university and the community they become part of."

Charlie Carter, Director of the International Office at Loughborough University adds:

“I’m delighted that we have entered into a progression agreement with Study Group’s Bellerbys College. This partnership enables both Bellerbys College and Loughborough University to provide enhanced support to students throughout their university application journey, giving reassurance and confidence to students and their families. Loughborough University has been welcoming Bellerbys students for many years and we look forward to more Bellerbys students joining our campus in the future.”
