It’s official! My time as a Loughborough student is now OVER!

I handed in my last ever assignment on Monday 4th June and as soon as I clicked on ‘submit’. Suddenly, I felt so nervous, confused, excited and lost! I didn’t know what or how to feel. It was definitely a happy moment to have finished my degree which I have worked so hard for over […]
