You'll have access to our fantastic facilities

STEMLab is a £17 million investment in new state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and part of a wider £25 million investment in our campus which includes an adjacent student learning and teaching hub.

STEMLab will include a suite of laboratories for practical work in Biosciences, allowing students crucial opportunities to gain applied experience with biological samples in a safe and modern environment.

I’ve been so impressed with the teaching quality and facilities at Loughborough. I find laboratory work particularly useful in reinforcing knowledge taught in lectures – we are able to apply theory using high-grade equipment.
