About Loughborough University:

Loughborough University is based on a superb 440 acre single-site campus at the heart of the UK, with an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research, strong links with industry, and an unrivalled reputation for sport. Over 17,000 students and staff from over 100 different countries help to create an exciting campus atmosphere and a strong sense of community. Loughborough is committed to maintaining an international reputation for world-leading research and our success feeds directly into teaching through an emphasis on research-led practice and consistent investment in state-of-the-art teaching facilities. In 2015, we opened the West Park Teaching Hub which offers a variety of teaching spaces and accommodates a range of student learning styles. We have recently opened our state-of-the-art STEMLab, a £17 million project that provides specialist laboratories and workshops to those studying courses in science, technology, engineering and maths.
