Our students are encouraged to compete at the highest levels and given additional support. We stand behind our athletes.

We have a unique system for academic support which allows committed performance student athletes the flexibility to balance the demands of competing at the highest level of your sport with your studies.

We have a number of sports with enhanced high performance programmes. If you are performing at national or international level and secure a place in one of our performance sport squads, you will receive high quality coaching, strength and conditioning, sports medicine support and a unique personal development programme.

For our most exceptional performance student athletes, we offer sports scholarships which include financial support and other benefits.

Represent your university

Club sport is your opportunity to represent Loughborough University in the BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) Championship. We have won the BUCS championship for 35 consecutive years, and with nearly 4000 members, joining a club is a great way to be part of the unique Loughborough experience.

There are over 55 student-led sports clubs to choose from, and competition for places in the teams is intense.
