Selection

Applicants are usually selected solely on the basis of their UCAS application, but in exceptional cases, an interview may be required. If applicants are made an offer of a place, they will be invited to visit the department giving them the opportunity to meet staff and students, see facilities and get an insight into what it is like to be a student at Loughborough.

Course fees 2017/18

UK/EU fee: £9,250   |   International fee: £16,000

Placement year fees for 2020/21 are still to be confirmed. As an indication, for 2017/18 the current placement fees are set at 20% of the yearly full-time fee for UK/EU students and £3,000 for international students.

Graduate destinations

Graduates choose from a wide range of employment possibilities including companies in aviation, as well as other modes of transport, local and central Government, and transport consultancy organisations. Academically gifted students are encouraged to undertake postgraduate studies within the School.

Industrial placements

The four-year course includes one year of professional training with an approved external organisation after completion of Year 2, and its successful completion leads to the award of the Diploma in Industrial Studies.

This option is of considerable benefit if you have little or no previous practical experience in the transport industry.

An insight is gained into the detailed workings of at least one major area of the industry and is a useful complement to the academic content of the degree. This placement can often lead to the offer of permanent employment with the same organisation when you graduate.

While the responsibility for making arrangements rests ultimately with the student, the School is able to offer advice and maintains excellent relations with a wide range of employers.
