Placements

Professional placements and study abroad

Loughborough has a long history of supporting students with paid work placements in business or industry in the UK or overseas, usually after your second year of study.

It is not compulsory but students gain enormously from the experience and typically, after completing their studies at university, are more likely to progress into high quality graduate employment.
