Full Profile

Phoebe Claydon
Materials Engineering
BEng 3rd Year (Finalist)

Before coming to Loughborough I did my A-Levels in Maths, Physics and Music at an all girls school in Essex. I really liked the atmosphere on campus when I came to the Open Day and after seeing how well Loughborough was doing in the league tables, I decided to apply.

The Materials Engineering course allows me to continue studying Maths and Physics but also teaches me practical applications of that knowledge. The Materials side of the course is really interesting – you’d be amazed how much there is to know about just one metal!

Clubs and societies are a big part of student life here. I’m part of the Union Dance Club. We do all kinds of dance including contemporary, ballet, hip-hop and jazz. We compete against other uni dance clubs and also perform at the Union sometimes. We recently performed there on Halloween night which was great!
