Loughborough University is a top 10 UK University (Complete University Guide 2018 and Guardian University Guide 2018) based on a superb 440 acre single-site campus at the heart of the UK, between Leicester and Nottingham. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality teaching, leading research opportunities and an award-winning student experience.
Recognised internationally as a top UK sporting university, Loughborough provides an unrivalled opportunity to get involved with sport regardless of ability level and interest. Whether you are performing at an elite level or a complete beginner, rest assured that you’ll have the opportunity to take part in sport at Loughborough.
Our award-winning Students’ Union is owned and run entirely by our students and is home to over 100 different clubs and societies. The Union ensures that Loughborough remains the very best place to live and study, boasting a vibrant atmosphere both day and night whilst offering a variety of exciting opportunities from fundraising and volunteering to sports and excursions. There really is something for everyone to get involved in, so that you can meet like-minded individuals and make new friends from around the world.
As well as providing the UK’s best student experience for the past decade (Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017) we pride ourselves on preparing students for graduate life after Loughborough. We recognise the importance of developing strong industry links, which is why all of our undergraduate courses have the option to incorporate a paid placement year as part of your degree. Students are supported in reaching their full potential and our graduates continue year-on-year to be highly sought after within an increasingly competitive job market.
The thing our students love the most about Loughborough University is the strong sense of community here. You’ll find likeminded people all over campus who’ll help you to be the best you can be in whatever you do – that’s what makes being part of the Loughborough family so special.
