Engineering Experience

Engineering Experience

Tuesday 11 April - Wednesday 12 April 2017 

This is an opportunity for Year 12 students (lower sixth form) to visit and stay overnight at one of the UK’s leading universities for engineering.

You’ll take part in our annual, two day event, which will give you an insight into what it would be like to study engineering at Loughborough University. It’s your chance to experience first-hand the University campus and student accommodation. You’ll also have an opportunity to take part in a number of different ‘taster events’ within our engineering departments. 

Staff and students are on-hand throughout the two days to talk about the courses we offer and answer other questions you may have.  There is a small charge for this event of £55 to take part, which covers meals and accommodation.

What you will do:

  • Visit different Engineering Schools and Departments
  • Take part in exciting engineering experiences
  • Learn about different engineering options
  • Talk to lecturers about engineering courses
  • Stay overnight in student accommodation

Department experiences include:

  • Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil and Building Engineering
  • Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering
  • Manufacturing Engineering 
  • Materials Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Product Design Engineering

Apply for your place

To apply for your place please complete this online application form.  Details of the application process are below.  

There are 200 places available and we will use the information you provide on the form to determine who gets allocated a place. 

Within the form we ask for a short (max 200 words) supporting statement. This will carry the most weight when we make decisions for places, so it is essential that you explain clearly why attending Engineering Experience will benefit you. You can prepare this before completing the application form and upload it directly from a word document if you prefer.

There is a small charge for this event of £55 to take part, which covers food and accommodation. The University is pleased to be able to offer 20 of the places free of charge to students who would have difficulty in meeting the cost. These will also be allocated on the basis of the information provided on the form.

The deadline for receiving applications is 12:00 midnight 20 January 2017. 

We aim to let everyone know the outcome of their application before the end of February.
