5. Learn from some of the best

We were recently awarded Gold for teaching excellence in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

6. We have a pretty great reputation

We’re ranked in the Top 7 of every major national league table, including the Guardian, Complete University Guide and the Table of Tables. Our students also voted us Whatuni’s ‘University of the Year’. Phew.

As one of the country’s top 10 research-led universities (REF 2014), Loughborough is renowned for our academic work and the benefit it brings to both society and our students’ learning.

STEMLab is our brand new £17 million world-class facility for science and engineering students. It forms part of a wider £25 million investment in the West Park of our campus, which includes the learning zone, West Park Teaching Hub.

10. Learn a new language

Students on nearly every degree have access to the University-wide Language Programme run by our Language Centre.

11. Fantastic location in the heart of the UK

We’re lucky to have such a beautiful place to call home – our stunning, single-site campus is our most glorious asset, measuring 440 acres in total – equivalent to 250 football pitches!
