This is an opportunity for Year 12 students (lower sixth form) to visit and stay overnight at the UK’s most popular university 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.
