Opportunities to get involved with Loughborough research projects

At the University, there is always significant research being undertaken. Many of the researchers – who are from a range of disciplines across campus - are looking for volunteers to take part in studies to help discover findings which could positively impact our future.

There are currently two research projects looking for your help:

  • 3-4 year old's numeracy development 

Researchers within the Schofield building are conducting a study to understand how pre-schoolers understand and learn about numbers before starting school.

They are looking for children aged between 3-4 years to take part in the study alongside a parent, where they will play number activities for around an hour at the University. 

A small reimbursement will be given as a thank you for your time. If you are interested or would like to find out more information, please contact or visit their website.

  • Job insecurity in Higher Education

This study aims to shed more light on the pervasive issues of job insecurity and how it affects work at universities in multiple countries.

The researcher is looking for any participants willing to take part in a 15-minute survey. To be eligible, you must be aged 18 or above and be a current staff member at Loughborough University.

By taking part in the survey, you also have the chance to win a prize or donate money to charity. The survey can be accessed here. If you have any questions, please contact Dr Eva Selenko at
