Prospective Students


We recognise that choosing to go to University will involve significant life changes, and for some students extra consideration and preparation is needed. Of course, we also recognise that going to University is a great opportunity. Loughborough University is committed to ensuring that students experiencing mental health difficulties receive the support they need to succeed.

To start this process, we would encourage prospective students to disclose their mental health difficulty during the application process. Loughborough University will not discriminate against you on the grounds that you have a mental health difficulty. If you tell us about your difficulties we would wish to consider whether there are any adjustments or support we might need to be put in place.

You may find the information on the University Mental Health Advisers Network (www.umhan.com) of interest, notably the "Students" section.

Please also refer to our Frequently Asked Questions for more answers to questions you may have.

We would like to work with you to begin to plan the support you may require if you decide to attend this University. If you are planning to study at the University, you can let us know about any support needs you may have by completing this form. We may contact you again to discuss your support requirements in more detail if clarification is needed. We are aware that this might duplicate some of the information that you have already provided (for example, to the Disability Office), but it is still useful for you consider the questions that we particularly ask.
