I've really enjoyed my time at Loughborough. My course has challenged me whilst still being manageable. I've also been able to get involved in lots of different societies and clubs and have made lifelong friends here
The student experience is brilliant. However there have been issues with funding for my course.
The university has done a lot to make the first-year students experience the best despite the pandemic.
I love campus environment and have great student services
Really fun place to be. Everyone is super helpful and want you to succeed. Committees and SU also do a lot of fun stuff
Good, safe university with good facilities
Amazing lecturers and facilities.
I'm pursuing MSc Marketing and find in the current scenario online classes are at par with on campus classes with professors making it an interactive session but hoping to gain on-campus classes soon.
Great facilities, wonderful staff (both teaching and non-teaching). You can always get hep with anything you need.
still don't release the campus cause of pandemic, but I believe I had a right choice
A great university to study at, plenty of sport facilities and excellent academic support!
One of the best universities in the world except the international student tuition fees
Amazing lecturers and support staff who are incredibly committed to academic excellence and genuinely invested in their students. Student accommodation available for all budgets, located either on campus or very close to campus. Very attentive careers service encouraging all students to gain work experience through internships, placements, insight schemes, volunteering opportunities, etc. to ensure graduates have enough experience to successfully apply to graduate schemes and internships. Great opportunities to study abroad for a year or semester. Plenty of events, societies and clubs. Very welcoming student population and lovely campus. Also ideal for anyone concerned about living in a large university city - Loughborough is less intimidating than city universities but there are still plenty of things to do and restaurants to visit. Alternatively, Leicester and Nottingham are very close (short train journey or drive) for more restaurants/shops/activities.
the university is really good and very helpful, they give really good advice and reply quickly when u contact them, there’s a lot of clubs and societies that you can join, the campus is really nice
Loughborough university is the best and one of the top universities in uk. They have quick access to all questions. The better coordination and good for students to pick this university so that you will get best academic education.
Teaching facilities is very supportive and amazing
emmmm, it is really hard to say. Because the Covid-19 pandemic screw up our life totally. I hope everything goes well after 8 March.
My experience so far is relatively fine considering the lockdown and all the limited opportunities. The campus facilities are definitely great; the uni always invests into expanding and improving. There is a really wide selection of clubs and societies, and you can always start your own. I haven't been to the students union, but im sure it is also great because so many others are raving about it. The careers service is pretty helpful since there are always events oragnized. Even during these times, there are online mock assessment centres held, events for discovering careers, and you can always call/email them for an advice.
Best university if you want a balanced life with academics, sports and other activities.
The best sports uni out there. Loving my time here.
The student services help students with all sorts of problems and make sure they are in the right path.
Loughborough University is great for excellent academic exposure that you can get from the experienced lecturers. There are various societies that you can take part in. Also, you can experience different fun activities and events in the campus.
I’m really thrilled by the wealth of experience the staff have and their ability to transfer their knowledge and skills.
Its the best university professors are very generous and they help a lot
The best choice from every perspective
Loughborough university is amazing it’s such a family and very very supportive with any needs you need. Best university ever
Loughborough has been really accommodating to all its students and provided a lot of support during this tough times. Although activities are limited they are doing as much as they can to give us a good student experience.
I loved every other aspect of my uni life here. Just to be clear, the night life was amazing and I really loved my course and the gym facilities were incredible, However, I had the unfortunate experience of having to eat in the Rutherford dining hall five days a week. If you are a vegetarian/vegan who knows how to cook... don't do this to yourself. I am not a fussy person at all, I grew up eating everything apart from onions and I become a vegetarian because of the environment. I just like to enjoy everything I eat. I'm pretty sure I ate a variation of carbs and beans every single day. There were some days when the food was so bland or so overcooked that I couldn't convince myself to eat it. None of the desserts or salad dressings were vegan so I ended up eating fruit and the only flapjack bar that was vegan. I was hungry ALL THE TIME. The choice was so limited that I made the decision to go back to being a vegetarian otherwise I thought I might actually suffer health consequences.
Not much I can say really, I am a 2020 fresher so everything is very restricted this year and quite frankly I don't feel like I'm getting the uni experience I wanted at all. Also, I think Loughborough as a town is very undesirable.
Loughborough is an incredible school. I am glad I made this choice
I was at Loughborough for my B.Sc. and Ph.D. and subsequently as a Research Fellow from 1973 to 1986. My life at Loughborough still makes a lasting positive impression to my personal and professional development even to this day - now shortly before retirement. Thanks to all. BTW. I had to give a star for WiFi to submit this even though it was in that day very futuristic. We just used punched cards to use the main ICL1900 computer - and get the results earliest the next day.
The holt wasn’t my first choice but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t the best choice I could have made. It has provided me with the greatest friends I could have asked for, and the best memories I could have had. It is close to campus near East park, 10 minutes from town and close to the local football clubs and sports grounds. Coming to the holt, you can’t go wrong.
Loughborough is a great university. Although is your not a stem student or a sports student your facilities are not as great. Loughborough does really acre for their students.
Excellent campus and facilities.
Loughborough Is a very good school. Every teacher in the school is doing his duty.
I have had a very interesting experience at Loughborough University, a mixture of highs and lows. I have been able to grow into an independent critical thinker/learner. I have definitely found out more about myself and interests and what I want to do with my life.
Loughborough University offers a great campus/facilities with goos student support and a great Students Union. There is a vast variety of clubs and societies, focused not only on sport, but I do think where sport is regarded, there needs to be a middle level for those better than IMS level, but not good enough for AU.
I was there as a PhD researcher and was very happy with the experience
Lots of open space and everything is close by so very convenient. Really good support services for most areas of life. Union has quite a bit going on, could do with more varied events.
Greatest experience of my life - Socieities are second to none, made friends that will last forever here.
My experience at Loughborough has been amazing, the best four years of my life! There is something for everyone, campus is amazing, so many sports/societies, and the community of students is so welcoming and friendly. I wish I could re-do it all again!
I have been here for 3 years. Great campus, Amazing facilities. helpful staffs.
Its a good uni with good prospects. No real complaints great facilities with a good social environment for most. The new the stem lab great, as well as new research labs.
Its a good uni with good prospects. My actual degree was a bit poorly managed, but putting in the work you should be fine it just made life a bit more difficult. As for the actual uni no real complaints great facilities with good social environment.
World class university. Students friendly environment
The school's learning atmosphere is very good. As the number one sports major, it has a lot of places to exercise, and students can do all kinds of sports anytime and anywhere.
It’s such a excellent university, nice people, tons of clubs and activities, fantastic gyms and facilities I’ve ever seen before, really enjoy the life here, nice teachers, made a lots of friends here, fabulous!
Beautiful university with countless sport facilities. It is a unforgettable experiencew
Loughborough University is a large university with facilities for students such as a gym, badminton court, swimming pool and library, as well as a social club. Which students can choose to join as they like In addition, there are very good teachers and friends to support.
Great as an international student，for me this is good experience
It is a good and safe place to study. The environment is quite nice to live and make friends. people here are kind and friendly.
Unbeatable experience. Such an accommodating university, which fits the needs for every kind of student. There is a real community - like presence.
Loughborough University is one of the best options in the UK and probably Europe to start studying a degree or taking part of a PhD. Facilities, gyms, schools, etc., are excellent, state-of-the-art equipment and great team.
The campus is beautiful, the student center is convenient and often holds activities to help students solve problems.
I hope that the university would open soon. really miss the days when I was sitting in the class and had lectures. the swimming pool, library and James France, are the places I miss most
beautiful campus which has a great atmosphere, lots of open space. Feels like home and that you are well looked after,
The union has loads of events, great clubs and societies and the wifi is fast.
My overall experience was okay as they had good lecturers. However, the University saw me as a money-making opportunity. Due to circumstances, I had to commute from Birmingham to uni every day. Only when I got there I hear they were charging hefty fees. So I decided to park outside campus away from the uni. One day when I visited my friend I got a warning from the unis or shall I say frauds that I parked in a no uni parking zone. However, I was visiting a friend to do some group studying. They let me off saying I shouldn't park there. But where else should I park when I visit my friend? Then halfway through the year, another friend said that he lives in a house just outside the campus and said that its a private road where I can park if I liked. So I did this and then the uni made me pay a fine of £50 even though and denied my appeal saying its because I missed a deadline. They didn't consider how busy I was commuting and managing work. They did this after charging me £14k tuition!!
good ranking, value for money and nice little town.
Great Uni, especially for Sports and Renewable Energy!
Good and lots of help for mental health
Great University with plenty of opportunities.
As an international student I genuinely love this place ! People are so friendly and it’s so relaxed 😌
Friendly uni, just not great for people who aren't socialites.
Loving my time at Loughborough. There’s lots of opportunities to get involved.
Excellent! This is my 4th year here and Im having the time of my life.
Great student experience, facilities are fantastic and very modern, as well as my lecturers being well motivated and motivating
An excellent institution for both personal and professional development. Every expectation of student life is exceeded when you choose to study at Loughborough University.
Loughborough has been such a good experience so far. The one thing that really bothers me is that teaching and examinations is done it cheapest possible ways. Most of my modules have just been seminars and then one exam. Usually no coursework, labs, tutorials or case studies.
Loughborough University is honestly a University like no other. It is both academically strong and top of the sporting world. It’s never been easier to balance my studies and training. And for those who don’t do sport, don’t fear! Loughborough is a Top 10 University in every league table for its incredible Campus, Teaching, Career opportunities and general student life. Being on campus feels like you’re part of a big family and the town is safe too!
If you like engineering and do sport at the same time this is the uni for you
I wouldn't choose a different university, I couldn't think of a better, more inclusive and supportive place to study
Everything is amazing, so many opportunities are offered and great atmosphere, however eduroam(the Internet service) is horrific
Wide variety of options to keep yourself occupied. The union is great. Haven’t been required to use career services as of yet
Excellent university to go too.
Excellent university and academics however poor student life as out of only studies
Everything is overpriced for the students who already lay load fee of 9k.
Brilliant! Wouldn't change it for the world.
Amazing student life and teacher support
Everything you could ever want from a University (except maybe another library and additional seating during exam periods). Other than that amazing!
Fantastic Uni, great lecturers. Just a shame the standard of some of the halls lets them down.
I am having a great time at Loughborough university, good location and course is good.
Still a fresher, I do wish they were more welcoming to International students.
I can't fault my experience at Loughborough. Facilities are constantly being built or renovated to improve our learning experience! There are so many things to get involved in outside of just sport, but the sport is also great. I am very grateful for the opportunities I have had whilst studying here and the experiences I have gained through completing a placement year as well as being part of a sports club. I now look back at when I applied to uni and can't believe I ever considered anywhere else.
I didn't even hesitate giving 5 stars across the board for Loughborough University and can honestly say I've had the best 4 years of my life studying here. I felt it excelled in every aspect of university life with a thriving Student Union, world class sporting facilities and so many career opportunities, I feel Loughborough stands a league above the rest. Choosing to study at Loughborough will be the best decision you'll ever make.
Choosing Loughborough was the best decision I ever made! I was heavily involved with a sports club, which added to my experience ten-fold, giving me awesome opportunities to compete. I've come away with life long friends from this club (and Loughborough in general) and our alumni regularly come back to visit, which I think says a lot. Being in this club allowed me to be on committee, which grew my employment chances ten-fold, not just through the skills I learnt (which were related to my course) but because Loughborough are brilliant at recognising the hard work of their student volunteers by giving out awards, which boosted my CV. Sport and the night life gave me the ability to balance working hard with playing hard. Ultimately, Loughborough invests in its people and have now made me a full-time employee in a Marketing role within sport, which shows you the opportunities available both as a student and alumni of Loughborough.
Loughborough University is an excellent teaching facility, offering an amazing balance between high quality education, fulfilling extra curricular activities as well as your social life. It truly makes you feel a part of one community.
Coming to Loughborough has been the best decision of my life, not only did I make lifelong friends, but I met my partner of 11 months there. It is such a lovely place to be.
Some of my best memories are from here! Truly a world class uni
I mean it's a great uni until you need them to do any admin for you, especially with the engineering schools.
An amazing uni with so many opportunities outside studying for your degree
Lovely place, find my course is unorganised and possessed rude and unhelpful lecturers. Also the History course was more politics and IR than history at times.
Amazing campus and very welcoming, but not much to do outside the university campus. I found it quite restricting and couldn’t enjoy myself as much as I would if closer to a city. While the campus is great, there isn’t much good nightlife and the same for in the town.
Being an international student, Loughborough University exceeded my expectations. I feel at home and no wonder it is The Times’ University of the year
You’ll never go a day without finding something to do. Very welcoming and loving environment to say the least.
Loughborough ranks high for a reason, it’s a great uni with amazing lecturers and people leave with highly respected degrees.
Best year of my life so far, am so happy to have chosen loughborough as it has everything you could need! Student experience is amazing, course quality is high and facilities are some of the best :))
Great campus, great family. Good courses and extra curricular activities.
No uni gets close to Loughborough. Fantastic facilities, teaching, and hall life to name a few. The best years of my life and many will agree
Amazing experience! The union, careers network, sporting facilities are just a few things that are outstanding at Loughborough.
